The good folks over at The Kitchn have developed a strawberry soda recipe infused with basil for a hint of unexpected spice.

The goal for this particular recipe was to capture a rich strawberry flavor without being overwhelmed by seeds. Taking the "simple syrup approach," the recipe requires the undertaker to simmer strawberry juice and sugar with lemon and basil, in order to balance the sweetness and add a hint of zest. Once the syrup is prepared, add two tablespoons into an 8oz glass, mix with carbonated water and the strawberry soda is ready to serve!

With health-consciousness on the rise, people are cutting back on soda in general. However, this homemade version is a delightful compromise for those who have a sweet tooth, but don't want to consume beverages saturated with artificial flavoring.
