Soda, All Grown Up

3 Apr

It may seem like I’ve dropped off the face of the earth, but I am still alive (just insanely busy lately).  In fact, I passed that quarter of a century mark last weekend in San Francisco, where I enjoyed a very grown up soda (now that I’ve achieved this age) at Lulu Petite in the Ferry Building.

Grown up Soda (GuS) in Extra Dry Ginger Ale tasted like a low-sugar version of Canada Dry with concentrated, tightly packed fizz.  In other words, the carbonation felt more like champagne than soda (therefore, no post Dr. Pepper burping syndrome).  The flavor of the ginger was distinct and crisp, really refreshing.

Just as I started to regret leaving San Francisco without trying some of the other interesting GuS flavors (like Dry Meyer Lemon and Dry Cranberry Lime), I saw on the GuS website that this soda line is available at Central Market.  Sweet!  Or rather, awesomely dry.

A longer San Francisco trip food report coming soon, I promise.

    I used to love those things. They always had a machine at our local Sam’s Club or whatever it was called back in the day.

    Bought the Dry Meyer Lemon ones from Central Market today. Phew, they mean dry! I could’ve used a touch of sugar in this drink.
