Soda Club Flavor of the Week

This week’s flavor Orange & Mango. Okay so I’m not strict about when the ‘week’ actually begins or ends. I figured it was time for a flavor change.

Allison really likes Orange & Mango. I’m not the biggest fan of the two fruit mixes. I like Orange and I like Grape but not really either of them mixed with another flavor. That is my personal preference.

Orange & Mango is featured in many recipes for The Soda Club. Like these:

Cranberry Orange Holiday Fizz

1 liter Soda-Club Cranberry-Raspberry soda
1 liter Soda-Club Orange-Mango soda
2 cups cranberry juice
2 cups gin or orange vodka (optional)
2 cups frozen whole cranberries
2 oranges, sliced

Add all ingredients to a large punch bowl
To keep punch cold throughout the evening, replenish frozen cranberries (they act as miniature ice cubes) or make an ice ring by freezing water, cranberries and oranges in a gelatin mold and let it float in the punch.

1 bottle of rioja or other red Spanish table wine
