Strawberry and Lime Soda- EZ Party hit!

barbararies.com

As we were looking into sources of iodine – an essential mineral key to thyroid function – strawberries (after sea vegetables and a couple of others) were high on the list. Hence with a nod to health, we present this delicious strawberry and lime soda, from chef Justin Everett of Cavallo Point. Of course a handful, of organic-fresh-from-the-garden berries would be healthier -but not nearly as much fun!

Ingredients:

1 cup of water
1 cup of sugar
10 fresh strawberries
5 limes, juiced and zested
1K liter of soda water
Ice

Directions:

In a medium-size pot, combine the water and sugar and heat until it boils. This becomes a simple syrup. Remove the syrup from the pot and cool in the refrigerator. Meanwhile, dice the strawberries into a large pitcher. Next zest the limes over the strawberries then squeeze all of the juice from the limes and add it to the pitcher. To finish, add the soda water and ice to the lime-and-strawberry mixture, then add syrup until you reach the desired sweetness. Stir well, and serve.
