I wonder why we all seem to have a carbonation fixation?

After quitting alcohol, I still drink a huge volume of water and sugar free drinks. Drinking 2-3 large Perriers and a 12 pack of lemonade is not unusual for me. I'm an odd soul.

Sure. It's called The Mocktail Manual by Fern Green. I'll try to give an update on a recipe or two this weekend!

Very, very cold coke or water. Double shot latte with 3 sugars on special occasions.

The miserable tap water on offer here in the Phoenix area means a water cooler is almost a necessity. Having nice clean, ice-cold water on hand all the time means I drink more of that than anything else.

My favorite 'grown-up' drink is an Arnold Palmer, preferably made with fresh-brewed tea and Califia Farms lemonade. Best store-bought lemonade, hands down. Also love those two beverages on their own.

For those who have a Trader Joe's around, I like to cut their yummy Villa Italia Blood Orange soda with some regular sparkling mineral water. It feels like a special treat!

I like that you cut the soda with mineral water, Andante. I find that so many soft drinks nowadays seem to be so horribly sweet. Or maybe my tastes are just evolving as I get older.

I have just discovered cherry limeade. Usually, I try to drink water but cherry limeade is my treat.

Long summer days here in Oz, we have been making zero mojitos..lovely and refreshing and alcohol free.

Put cut lime, 11 large mint leaves, and either the Sprite or Simple Syrup + Club Soda into a glass. Using a muddler muddle the ingredients for about a minute.
Pour ice in and shake or mix well.
Garnish with mint and lime.
Serve immediately.

I was craving a spritzer earlier and realized I just wanted something fizzy (not the wine).
I got one for 79 bucks at Fred Meyers, but I don't recall the model. I keep like 4 to 6 flavors available so to keep it varied. Staples are diet cola without caffeine, diet ginger ale, sunny delight (surprisingly great!), And I usually have one of the essence flavors which makes it taste just subtle like talking rain seltzer.

I tried a few drinks yesterday, but the unquestioned best was: muddle about 8 rasberries and a couple mint leaves, add ginger beer, stir gently, serve. It is fantastic and easy to make.
