A Little Tart

I’m not referring to your sister, I’m referring to these new-ish “cocktail sodas” from Stirrings.



As someone who cooks from scratch, I’m a firm believer in doing things the long and hard way. But I will grudgingly admit that Stirrings is making some good products for those who have neither the will nor the time to take the long way to mixing drinks. The people who are coming up with these products obviously have good palates because the sodas aren’t sweet or cloying the way most mixers on the market are.

This little soda is a good case in point. It’s not dry, nor too sweet, which adds to its crisp liveliness. It’s fresh and light, but still has lots of flavor.

Not a bad way to spruce up a Cosmopolitan or a little white rum on the rocks with an orange twist. You can find these at Cost Plus and Sur la Table.
