Coconut Ginger Soda

I’m not a big soda drinker. I usually like the first two or three sips, after that I’m over it. If I’m going to drink a soda, I gravitate towards ginger ale or ginger beer.


I have one of those home carbonation systems, so I often drink sparkling water with a dash of homemade bitters. It’s great, but it’s not sweet and sometimes you want something sweet. That’s why I made up this little concoction. It’s a 3 ingredient recipe and one of those ingredients is water. Easy! 


It makes about 1 cup of concentrate that you can use to flavour your drinks. It would also taste amazing on some vanilla ice cream.


I don’t have any rum in the house, but I’m going to make a bold statement here and say that this will make a great mixer. If you love a good Dark ‘n’ Stormy, you will love it!
