A very pretty drink consisting of homemade red vanilla flavored syrup mixed with lemon-lime soda.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 1 cup white sugar
- 3/4 cup water
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 4 drops red food coloring
- 1 (2 liter) bottle lemon-lime flavored carbonated beverage, chilled
- 1 lemon, sliced
In a saucepan, combine sugar and water. Boil for 1 minute, stirring to dissolve sugar. Remove from heat, and stir in vanilla and red food coloring; allow to cool. Store in a squeeze bottle for easy use.
Fill glasses halfway with ice. Add 1 tablespoon syrup, then top with 8 ounces lemon-lime soda. Garnish with a slice of lemon.
