This fizzy drink is perfect for the holidays. I make the bubbly water in our SodaStream (this Thanksgiving marks our third year we have had ours), and add a simple syrup that has been infused with seasonal flavors.
Holiday sodas are a fun treat, and this recipe is perfect for everyone in the family. Enjoy!
