6 New Summer Sodas to Sip
Six new sodas we love.
When we find ourselves craving something sweet, portable, and a little bit nostalgic, a soda pop is really the only answer. The botanical extracts, herbs, floral aromas, fruits, and natural sugars are just a few reasons these delicious new-wave carbonated drinks hit the spot for picnics, road trips, and backyard hangouts.
United Sodas Blackberry Jam
Jam lovers, rejoice! This fizzy, lip-puckering essence of the Marion blackberry is a perfect celebration of the best summer produce. ($35 for 12, unitedsodas.com)
Casamara Club Capo
If we could bottle up the essence of a pine forest, it would taste like Casamara Club’s Capo. This blend of peppermint leaf, cloves, cardamom, and licorice root is sure to be a star in your cooler lineup. ($36 for 12, casamaraclub.com)
Casamara Club Onda
When we read “sparkling amaro soft drink” on Casamara Club’s Onda label, we did a double take. Onda uses high-quality ingredients like Italian chinotto, juniper berry, and rhubarb root in a totally unexpected drink that’s unlike any soda we’ve had before. ($36 for 12, casamaraclub.com)
Longing for the taste of an orange Creamsicle but not so much for all the added sugars? Los Angeles–based Corsa’s smooth spritz boasts a tangy bouquet of blood orange, Key lime, and Honeybell citrus that is sure to take you back in time. ($48 for 12, corsa.co)
Dona Pink Peppercorn Lemon
Who knew that peppercorns and elderberries were a match made in heaven? This is the driest soda of the group, and we fell in love with its balanced tartness and crisp, uber-refreshing carbonation. ($24 for 6, drinkdona.com or amazon.com)
Slingshot Coffee Co. Citrus Vanilla Cream Soda
Caffeine, meet carbonation: This cold-brew soda is perfectly balanced by notes of citrus and vanilla cream. ($12 for 4, slingshotcoffeecompany.com)
