Fizzy Drinks for Sandwich Meals

Fizzy Drinks for Sandwich Meals
A tasty sandwich meal deserves a special drink, and what could be better than a sweet and fizzy drink? Made with sweet fruit juices or punch and a bit of the bubbly, these drinks are super simple to make. Just use your creativity to custom make a drink that perfectly complements your meal.

The bubbles in a fizzy drink are gas bubbles that are trapped in the liquid. Carbon dioxide is a gas, made by combining an acid and a base that gives soft drinks and sparkling wines their bubbly effect. By mixing a bubbly liquid with fruit juices, you can have a drink that your guests will love. If you want to reduce the carbohydrate and calories, use a version of the bubbly drink that is artificially sweetened. Of course, the more natural the ingredients, the healthier that the drink will be. Chill all of the ingredients before mixing them in a large pitcher or bowl. Here are some ideas for ingredients;

Ingredients for Fizzy Drinks:

Fizzy Ingredients: These drink additions can be liquids that are alcoholic or without alcohol.
Champagne, sparkling wine, sparkling cider, lemon-lime soda (I like Sierra Mist), ginger ale, and club soda.

Fruit drinks: Use one fruit juice or a combination of several, to your taste.
Orange juice, pineapple juice, apple juice, mango juice, fruit punch, cranberry juice, lime juice, lemon juice, strawberry-kiwi juice, Pomegranate juice, and acai juice.

Sweet additions: When frozen, these ingredients can serve as ice cubes that don't dilute your drink. They add nutritional value, too. You might also want to add your favorite flavor of sherbet, instead of the fruit. Sherbet causes the drink to froth and adds creaminess.
Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, orange slices, lemon slices, lime slices, peach slices, mango chunks, pineapple chunks, and cherries.

For maximum carbonation, make the drink just before your guests arrive. Carbon dioxide comes out of solution when it is stirred, shaken, or sits too long. That fresh and fizzy taste comes from serving the drink as soon as you can after mixing the fruit juice and the bubbly together. If you want to make the drinks ahead of time, mix the fruit juices. Just before your guest arrive, add the bubbly and fruit, if desired. That's it! Simple and sweet.

When I was younger, I worked as an au pair girl for an Australian lady. As I arrived at her house after school, she served me tea. Colder days taught me to drink scalding, but delicious, hot tea. The warm days of Spring brought a fizzy juice drink to the tea table. It was a 50/50 mix of orange juice and lemon-lime soda. In my youth, I thought that it was so elegant! I still enjoy the taste of this versatile drink. So refreshing!
