fentiman's dendelion and burdock soda

I’m always on the lookout for natural sodas.  I love a sweet carbonated beverage but the more I read about high fructose corn syrup the more I try to avoid it.

I also love infusing herbs into things ~ like brandy tinctures for instance ~ so when I heard about Fentiman’s Botanically Brewed Beverages I just had to sample some.

    Fentiman’s cola is the best, it has a gorgeous simple old fashioned taste :-)

    • hello & thanks for visiting and subscribing! i’m excited to try the cola, it’s been a while since i’ve enjoyed an icy cold one {maybe with a splash of rum in there…}

  2. I am sold on the rose lemonade

    I always see these at World Market but have only tried the ginger beer so far. Have you ever had Bundaberg ginger beer? Best in the world, imo! :)
