These Strawberry Grapefruit Mint Spring Sodas are made with a simple mint syrup, fresh strawberries, grapefruit juice, and coconut carbonated water. These homemade sodas will leave you feeling refreshed on any sunny day. Vegan option available.
Summer is the time to sip on refreshing drinks. And next time, instead of buying a fancy mocktail or store-bought soda, why not make your own? You can start with Pineapple Ginger Turmeric Lemonade or a Citrus and Honey Mocktail. Then, be sure to try these sparkling strawberry grapefruit sodas!
Making simple syrup is an easy way to add a pop of flavor to your homemade drinks. And you can flavor it however you like.
I like to flavor my simple syrup with fresh mint and grapefruit. It's naturally sweetened with honey and organic pure cane sugar (optional) is super easy to make!
For a vegan version: swap the honey for agave syrup.
To make your own simple syrup, boil the flavoring ingredients in water to bring out their natural oils. Then stir in the sugars. Finally, let the syrup cool and infuse with flavor for about 30 minutes. Now, you can store the syrup in an airtight container or jar the fridge and use it to make refreshing drinks whenever you like.
Grapefruit has high nutritional value but is low in carbs. In addition, it has a decent amount of fiber and comes jam-packed with Vitamins.
Other benefits of eating (to drinking!) more grapefruit:
Looking for other citrus recipes? I'd recommend trying this Healthy Blood Orange Kiwi Drink. You’ll be surprised at just how easy it is to make, using all natural and organic ingredients, by a simple blend, all in just under 10 minutes TOPS! It’s certainly the best drink of the spring and summer seasons.
Once you've made the mint and grapefruit simple syrup, you'll want to remove the mint leaves and before making the sodas.
To serve, fill your glasses with crushed ice. Then add the mint syrup (it's best if this is chilled). Next, a splash of grapefruit juice and finally finish the drinks off with coconut carbonated water up to the rim.
For garnish, I like fresh sliced strawberries and more mint leaves for color!

LOVE THIS RECIPE?
LET US KNOW!
Diet soda has the benefit of not having any calories or at least very few. Diet soda won't impact your calorie intake, but there are some cautions. Some of the sugar substitutes, while calorie free may not be fooling your body. It may react as if your soda was sugared. I know that when I drink diet soda, my craving for sweets tends to rise a short time later.
