Spritzer

The weather is still hot and the thirst is never quenched with just water. Fruit juices may sound uninteresting to some who prefer carbonated soft drinks, especially young ones. A good alternative to such people will be Spritzer, a fizzy drink made with fresh fruit juice and soda (Carbonated water). This post will feature a few spritzers, made with orange, pomegranate and lemon. Soda can be substituted with water and with a few cubes of ice, it will make a terrific fruit drink. The syrup that is made can be stored in a refrigerator and used whenever required.


Orange Spritzer
Ingredients
Water               1/2 cup
Sugar                1/2 cup
Orange Juice   1/2 cup
Lemon Juice    1/8 cup
Club Soda
Method
Combine sugar and water and on medium heat stir until the sugar dissolves. Add the orange juice and the lemon juice, let it boil for about 5 to 10 minutes, until the syrup thickens.
Strain the syrup and let it cool. For one part of the syrup, add 2 to 3 parts of soda and serve chilled.


Pomegranate Spritzer
Water                                       1/2 cup
Sugar                                        1/2 cup
Pomegranate juice                  1/2 cup
Orange juice or lemon juice  1/8 cup
Club Soda


Method
Combine sugar and water in a bowl, stir on medium heat the sugar dissolves and makes a syrup. Add the juices and let it boil for a few minutes. Strain, cool and mix it with soda or water to make a fruit juice. The addition of orange or the lemon juice to the pomegranate juice overpowers the taste of pomegranate and tastes like orange juice with the sweetness of the pomegranate.

Lemon juice     1/4 cup
Ginger juice     1/2 tbsp
