Growing up, my parents never kept soda in the house and it was a rare treat when we got something fizzy to drink. I remember one time I was at an after school Honor Society meeting (yeah, I was in that) and I drank a can of soda too fast and started coughing like a maniac. One of the teachers ran over to help me and when he asked me if I was ok, I said, yes, that the carbonation got to me. I’ll never forget that incredulous look, and at that point I knew I was outside of the soda drinking club. Anyhow, I was never really into soda and am more than happy to drink water and raw milk. Mr. Bejelly is a different type of animal and it was like prying dark chocolate from the Little’s hands to get him to quit the stuff.
I came up with the Coconut Chai Spritzer recipe as a way to fill his need for soda. You can get as creative as you like with the recipe and instead use peppermint tea, mango tea or my second favorite Sweet Tangerine Tea to make your perfect spritzer.
- 1 cup of Coconut Chia Tea
- 1 cup of mineral water
- 3 -4 drop of Stevia
- Add your chilled, brewed tea to a large mason jar.
- Add in the mineral water and Stevia to taste.
- Pour over ice and enjoy!
