Daniel Shoemaker cleverly combines dill, cilantro and cantaloupe juice in a soda that echoes the botanical flavors of the Southside’s gin and mint. The soda can be mixed into cocktails, but it’s fantastic all by itself. Slideshow: More Tasty Mocktail Recipes

How to Make It

Step 1    

In a medium saucepan, stir the sugar with the water over low heat until dissolved. Add the dill and cilantro and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and let steep for 20 more minutes.

Step 2    

Strain the herb-infused syrup into a bowl and stir in the cantaloupe juice. Pour into a soda siphon (see Note) and refrigerate until chilled, about 1 hour. Seal the canister, shake hard and charge according to the manufacturer’s directions with 1 or 2 CO² chargers. Dispense the soda into 8 chilled pilsner glasses.

Notes

Soda siphons and CO² chargers are available at kitchenware shops and surlatable.com.
