tasty tuesday

 wait until you see all the technical words and fancy terminology i use for today's non-recipe.



Raspberry Soda

start with a nice big cup, a quarter or third of that cup filled with fresh raspberries.


next you're going to want to add grenadine and some simple syrup (however much you like)
i used sugar because i was too lazy to make simple syrup at 6:30 in the morning before work.


i used about a tablespoon of grenadine and a half a teaspoon of sugar
get a long handled spoon or a muddler (normally i use a muddler but it was not as handy and the spoon did the job) and smush it all up


i'll be honest here.... this is a super blurry picture. i took it while i was smushing. not my best idea.

if you don't smash it all up well enough it will be hard to drink through a straw.


next you're going to add your ice.
this step didn't really need its own picture, but why not.


fill your cup with club soda.
again.... not really needing a picture.... but damnit i want to be thorough! i never take pictures step by step so i'm taking the simplest thing ever and making it seem important.




voila!
