Generally speaking, I am not a big soda drinker. In fact, the only time I ever really want a carbonated beverage is during a sour morning-after hangover. It wasn’t always so. During the endless summers of grade school, I craved orange soda pop and only orange soda pop—no grape, no cola (certainly never water). This light, citrusy, summery tart is an elegant nod to my old obsession. It actually features orange soda as a main ingredient, yet the look and texture suggest something decidedly more upscale. It’s soda-fountain quaint with a whiff of Le Cordon Bleu, and it is delicious.
