It was a freezing cold January evening - what better project to chase away the cold than to make a new batch of soda?
3 thai (birds eye) chilles
2 large grapefruits
3 tablespoons of honey
Chilles were deseeded and chopped, then boiled with a 50ml of water with the zest of the grapefruit. We heated this on low heat for 20 minutes, then added in the honey
Grapefruits were juiced, and the cooled and filtered mixture of chile, zest and honey was added to the 500ml of juice.
We left this in the fridge to cool for a few hours (while we caught up on another episode of The Prisoner - the original British one, not the new remake)
Before retiring for the night, we carbonated it in our soda siphon, and left it in the fridge over night.... ooh the suspense!
