Vermont Maple Fizz

My sister and her family were glamping in Vermont last month. They visited the farmer's market in Stowe one afternoon and a vendor there was offering up a very unique beverage that my sister could not resist. Freshly carbonated water from a local spring served over ice with a shot of pure Vermont maple syrup drizzled in. Alyssa said it was the most delicious and refreshing drink she had ever tried.

Of course I couldn't wait to reproduce it.

Drizzle in 1 tablespoon of pure maple syrup

This drink is a sensation and a revelation.  I never tasted anything like it.  It's thirst quenching, deeply satisfying and perfectly sweet for when you want a little something something.

  1. We used to get a maple soda in Vermont that was carbonated maple sap, from before they boiled it down into syrup. So delicious! I miss it, now that we don't live close enough to get it.
