Rhubarb soda.. and a True Brews Giveaway!

I’ve said it beforeTrue Brews is a totally fun book.  I’m looking forward to exploring more recipes, like the hard lemonade and the hard cider… maybe even some of the beers but for right now, I’m obsessed with soda.

Last weekend, I got a pound and a half of rhubarb in my CSA and immediately thought SODA!  Rhubarb is tart and we really do enjoy a less sweet soda so I thought it was perfect.

But how does one juice a rhubarb.  Emma to the rescue again!

I do wish my rhubarb was more pink so that I would have a prettier juice.  I actually contemplated putting some red food coloring in there. But I didn’t.

The juice sat in the fridge for a few days so the bits that didn’t filter out would settle to the bottom. Which totally worked. I just poured it out into a big bowl and let the sludge stay in the jar.   I added lime juice, sugar and pitched the yeast.. then bottled it up!

Two days later, I had lovely fizzy, tart rhubarb soda!
