I’m from Brooklyn, where the Southern transplants learned to drop the “pop” and refer to the fizzy beverage as “soda”.
1 pint strawberries, stems intact
1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup
fresh ginger to taste
1 cup water
sparkling mineral water
Add strawberry, ginger, water, and sweetener to container and blend on high until completely smooth.
To serve, pour 1/2 cup of strawberry blend into a glass with a little ice, then tilt glass as you slowly pour a 1/2 cup of mineral water into to glass. Stir slowly, so as not to disturb carbonation.
Store remaining strawberry blend in an airproof container, such as a mason jar and use within 5 days.
