Notes from the 2008 Southwest Foodservice Expo: Dry Soda

Dry Soda is a reduced sugar (50 to 75 calories) carbonated soft drink. The inventor, Sharelle Klaus, was not happy with the nonalcoholic options (coffee, tea, soft drinks) available during her pregnancy and set about to develop four flavors (brilliantly I might add) that could be paired with food or enjoyed on their own. Dry Soda is available at Central Market and Whole Foods.

Lavender goes with cheese, pork or roast duck.

Lemongrass goes with Asian dishes, spicy dishes or goat cheese.

Rhubarb goes with beef, comfort foods and burgers.

Kumquat goes with salmon, risotto or oysters.
