Here at Pie In The Sky Pizza, we enjoy the food that we make here, and nothing complements a fresh and delicious pizza quite like your soft drink of choice! While there is certainly nothing wrong with going with the standard Coke or Pepsi, maybe Sprite or root beer for the kiddos, what if you decided to cater to your inner-child and mix up a few concoctions of soft drinks to make a new soda? Except this time, make a soda that will actually taste good! Here are a few tips for creating your own soft drink combos that will delight your taste buds.
- Think of flavor “families” rather than brands. Instead of focusing on brands like Coke, Pepsi, Sprite and Fanta, think about what their base flavors are instead. With Coke and Pepsi, you have a more traditional cola that you can add citrus flavors to such as the lemon-lime of Sprite or orange soda. Mixing together fruity tastes will give you more consistently good flavors than trying out every soda in one cup.
- Rely on past experience. Think of some drink combinations or flavor combinations that you already enjoy and work from there. Do you like the taste of Sangria? Try a grape drink with a splash of orange. If you are a cola drinker, try adding a bit of a fruit-flavored soft drink for a different take on cola.
- Play with ratios. Don’t be afraid to try out different ratios of soft drinks, since these will give you different end results. Start with a base that you know you enjoy and then slowly add in other soft drinks until you find something you like!
We would love to hear about your own soft drink combinations that you enjoy!
