Wild Blueberry Soda


Something about the combination of fresh squeezed lime juice and summer berries gets me every time, and this wild blueberry soda is no exception.

Wild Blueberry Soda Recipe - Dairy-Free

Really, I think it is quite tasty with just the berries, juices, soda, and a touch of sweetener, but the Wild Blueberry Association takes it a step further with fresh mint leaves and elderflower syrup for a fragrant touch.

Fresh mint leaves are easy to find in stores during the summer, and can even be grown with ease in your window sill!
