National Carbonated Beverage with Caffeine Day | Cran-Raspberry Lime Cocktail – The Foodie Patootie

National Carbonated Beverage with Caffeine Day | Cran-Raspberry Lime Cocktail

Three hundred twenty-three days into 2014 and you would think that certain food holidays wouldn’t surprise me, but once again, they have me scratching my head in confusion. Yes, I do enjoy carbonated, caffeinated beverages, but who would even think to make a National Carbonated Beverage with Caffeine Day? And if you did, I hope you contributed something much better alongside it like National Cold Cuts Day and National Cream Puff Day.

You like how I linked to a Thanksgiving recipe just then? Ha, nothing like selling yourself in what’s supposed to be a sly way and then calling yourself out for it. But, really, National Cold Cuts Day above links to a Thanksgiving sandwich with all the fixins’ so check it out, especially for something to enjoy with leftovers next Friday.

But back to beverages. I talked a lot about wanting a SodaStream and my husband, who actually listens to all my drivel, bless his heart, got me one. I am the proud owner of a SodaStream, and have been for about six months now, yet I just tried to make it myself for the first time for this post (Mike makes all the soda in our home) and I exploded water everywhere. Whoops.

But look! It came together just fine, a nice (strong) adult beverage with a squirt of lime. Enjoy as your mid-week hump day drink.
