Making a delicious, refreshing drink is as easy as picking your favorite fruit and following this easy fruit soda recipe. After puréeing the fruit in a food processor until smooth, you’ll strain it to get a juice. Combined with simple syrup and sparkling water and this is as delicious as any fancy mocktail you could buy. This recipe lends itself well to upgrades like fresh mint, a squeeze of lemon juice, or a dash of bitters. It’s worth seeking out peak-season fruit for the sodas. The riper the summer fruit is, the less simple syrup you’ll need!
