Please welcome Andrea Lynn, author of The Artisan Soda Workshop: 75 Homemade Recipes from Fountain Classics to Rhubarb Basil, Sea Salt Lime, Cold-Brew Coffee and Much Much More, who is kind enough to share with us a delightfully tropical syrup recipe that will take your plain old soda to fizztastic in no time!
Yield: ½ cup
The vibrant tropical flavor of pineapple matches well with the hint of basil.
- 2 cups pineapple juice
- 12 to 15 basil leaves
In a medium, heavy pot, combine the pineapple juice and basil leaves, and bring to a boil over high heat. Let boil until reduced to ½ cup, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and use a fork to remove the basil leaves from the liquid. Let cool, and refrigerate the syrup in a covered container for up to 5 days.
To make Pineapple-Basil Soda: Stir 2 tablespoons Pineapple-Basil Syrup, or to taste, into 10 ounces (1¼ cups) seltzer.
