Are you on the flavored soda bandwagon yet? It’s all the rage in Utah, and it was kind of funny to come up to Portland and realize that there are almost no soda shops here. I’m not going to debate about whether soda is healthy for me (I’m pretty sure it’s not) but as someone who doesn’t drink coffee, I definitely need the caffeine in a Diet Coke to get me through a tough day. And I’ll be honest and say that most days during the summer are tough days in which I need a Diet Coke. 🙂 Anyway, after seeing me make my millionth dirty Diet Coke of the summer, my kids were begging to try a flavored soda of their own, and I realized I had never introduced them to peach Sprite! It was the first flavored soda I ever tried, right after my husband and I got married, and it brings back great memories for me. It’s tart and sweet and the perfect combination of flavors! As a rule, I only let the kids have soda on special occasions, but it was fun to watch how excited they each got over their tiny cups of peach Sprite. This stuff is magical!
12 ounces lemon lime soda, chilled
2 tablespoons peach syrup
1 lime wedge
Fill a tall glass halfway with ice. Pour the peach syrup over the top and squeeze the lime wedge over the peach syrup. Pour in the lemon lime soda, then stir with a straw until blended. Enjoy immediately!
