Have you heard of dirty drinks? Soda with a shot of flavored syrup in them?
Dirty drinks are becoming increasingly popular where I live. The most famous being Dirty Diet Coke (Diet coke with lime and coconut). However, there are so many yummy combinations! I love raspberry in Diet Dr Pepper. It has been my Sonic-drink-of-choice for awhile now.
My obscene collection of Torani syrups is due to dirty drinks. My husband laughs that I have a massive collection of "coffee syrups" when I don't even drink coffee. Yes. Hilarious. I am fairly certain he thinks that if the apocalypse comes we will be surviving on sugar-free syrups.
I, personally, see no problem with this.
What more could one want?
Oh right, bacon. There is bacon syrup as well.
Major food groups? Covered.
Anyways, these drinks are my go-to solution when I am craving sweets and know I shouldn't have any. Zero calories, but such a treat! They are so much cheaper to make at home and you can have a lot of fun customizing them to your liking.
Afraid you'll never use that great big bottle of Torani? Here are some other things I've made with mine:
Blueberry Lemon Spritzer
Fresh Citrus Fresca
You basically needs lots of bottles! Plus... they double as food storage! ;)
