Step 2: Blend Your Fruit

When choosing what types of fizzy drinks to make, I based my decisions on the fruits and juices that we already had on hand. However, you can use any selection of your favorite fruits and juices. Then, I added a small scoop of the fruit with a couple of tablespoons of juice and blended until the fruit/juice mixture was as thick as a puree.

Step 3: Slice Your Fruit

I added a small scoop of fresh fruit to the bottom of each mason jar before adding the juice/fruit mixture. I used seasonal fruit including strawberries and pomegranates as well as some frozen fruit that we had in the freezer.

Step 4: Add the Fizz

Fill each of your glasses or mason jars 3/4 full of sparkling water – I used a selection of berry, orange and lime sparkling water.

Add a small scoop of fresh, seasonal, organic fruit to the sparkling water.
