soda party

Being in a group chat with my utterly fantastic karamels was the best and worst decision anyone could have ever made 😂. Timezones means 24/7 notifications and i cant even handle all the laughter and brilliance and i blame you all for me never getting sleep ever again. This hiatus is turning out to be quite the party. First lemon and now this? @starcrossed-comets you are a wealth of genius. Special mention to my new sister @contygold86 and im not going to mention the dark side because they already know who they are with their havoc wreaking ways dont need the encouragement 😂. So much love for you all 😍😍😍😘😘😘 xoxoxoxoxoxoxxoxooxoxoxoxoxoxo

K-2SO:

I love how antis think we’re demons plotting the end of the world, while actually we’re happily on each other’s dash’s spreading love, and having club soda parties, and reblobbing that one gif of Chris forever and ever. We try so hard to be respectful and often can’t seem to get that back in return, but at the end of the day, I’m still so happy to have this family of absolute dorks, I love you all.

Here’s a delicious sub: DIY bubbly drinks with gourmet flavors you won’t find in a store. They’re easy to make, and each of the following has just 120 calories (or less) per serving.

Put strawberries and their juice in a blender and pulse to roughly chop. Pour through a strainer lined with a double layer of cheesecloth and squeeze to extract as much liquid as possible.

Mix both juices together and chill in a sealed glass jar in the fridge. Syrup will stay fresh for up to 3 days.

To serve, pour 1/3 cup syrup into a tall glass, top with 6 to 8 ounces chilled seltzer or soda water, and stir. Garnish with orange slice, if desired.
