Mulberry Lime Soda

Mulberry Lime Soda is a perfect summer treat! Make with fresh berries for a mocktail the whole family will love. There is nothing like this fresh, and perfectly tart homemade soda!



Summer is here and my neighbor has a mulberry tree. Lucky for me, he doesn't eat them himself and he is gracious enough to let my family linger in his yard and pick as many as we like. I love to pick them daily at the peak of ripeness, take them home to clean them, then pop them in the freezer for my pet turtle who loves to eat them. They make a nice treat in the winter for her. But this time, I decided to use a few to make a total summer treat. This mulberry lime soda is perfect for sharing or sipping solo.



This is such an easy soda to make. 
Use club soda, sprite or a soda stream machine for the base of the drink. 

Supplies:

1 lime
1/2 cup of mulberries
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of water
Mesh Strainer

Directions:

Combine berries, water, juice from half of a lime and sugar in a saucepan.
Over medium heat bring to a boil.
Reduce heat and allow the fruit syrup to simmer for 20 minutes.
Pour through a mesh strainer.
Discard fruit (This is wonderful over ice cream if you are so inclined.)
Allow the syrup to cool then store it in a bottle or mason jar.

When you are ready to enjoy this mulberry lime soda fill a glass with ice. Add sprite or club soda, leave a little room at the top of the glass.
Add 1 to 2 ounces of syrup to the glass. 
Garnish with a lime wedge or a few fresh berries.
Enjoy.
