If you love grapefruit as much as we do, you are going to be seriously smitten with this Grapefruit Soda Syrup! It has made our recent SodaStream purchase worthwhile! This soda syrup is a breeze to make, and uses only a few ingredients.
With so many soda makers out there, this syrup makes for a perfect wedding favor. Even if your guests don’t have a SodaStream, they can mix the syrup with bottled carbonated water.
We’ve sampled some of the syrups that come with the SodaStream and we find them too sugary for our taste. This syrup is 100% natural, and makes for refreshing beverage that isn’t overly sweet. We think if it as a sophisticated alternative to traditional pop.
