Some of you may have noticed my brief absence from posting just over a week ago. The main reason for this is that I was traveling to NYC. While my travel plans were specifically to see an old friend, I did manage to get some food sightseeing in and stop by Smorgasburg at the Brooklyn Flea Market to check out the amazing Brooklyn Soda Works.
Formed in 2010 by an artist and a chemist, Brooklyn Soda Works invents tantalizingly delicious soda flavors using locally sourced produce and herbs whenever possible. They juice everything by hand and use very little sugar to retain the natural traits of their ingredients. Their creative flavors include everything from Grapefruit, Jalapeno & Honey to Hibiscus And Mint. Their flavors change weekly and there is always something new, something different and something in season.
When I was there on June 8th I was able to sample the Lemon and Thyme, Tart Cherry Cola, Apple and Ginger, and my favorite, the Rhubarb and Thai Basil (which I couldn’t turn down a whole glass of). I highly recommend if you are ever in NYC to check out the Brooklyn Soda Works. You will not regret it!
