Lime 'Soda'

I realize I am not reinventing the wheel here. Heck, I don't even want to google this because it is probably some kind of drink, known by a common name, like a manhattan, or a margarita.

But I created this just for me and my taste buds. Without googling or doing a recipe search.

I don't like to do real 'soda's', or 'pop' if you will. Too sweet for me and the sugar spreads like wildfire through my teeth leaving all kinds of goodies....like cavaties.

But I miss the carbonation from soda....pop.

So here is my new drink.

When water just won't cut it.

A few slices of lime. Two ice cubes. And good ol' Club Soda!

Love it! I add mint and some sugar, which (don't keep reading! Stop! ...does make it very similar to a certain Cuban drink I enjoy...)

Interesting, I've stopped drinking pop, too many empty calories, but I do miss the carbonation, I just don't think I realized that until now! I'll have to give this a try, thanks!

Oh I love this drink! I have been making it for several years. I didn't want our children to have colas when they were younger so I would put 100% juice in a glass and mix it half and half with club soda. They loved it and I would do lemons or limes in mine. Oh so refreshing. I have the limes so I think after reading your post I will go to the store tomorrow and get me some club soda!!
