My family enjoys soda but I don’t like the expense or the high fructose corn syrup and artificial sweeteners in many sodas. I recently reviewed *Homemade Sodas* by Andrew Schloss that has 200 recipes for sodas you can make yourself. I decided to try the bedtime chamomile soda.

Of all the herbal sedatives, chamomile is one of the most soothing, and by far the most pleasant-tasting. In this bedtime beverage sweetened chamomile tea is mixed with a little milk before it’s carbonated. Calcium, the most plentiful mineral in milk, is a natural tranquilizer.
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup sugar
1 chamomile tea bag
1/2 cup milk
Combine water and sugar in a small sauce pan. Bring to boil, then remove from the heat, add the tea bag, and let steep for 5 minutes. Remove the tea bag and let the syrup cool to room temperature. Stir in the milk.
To Mix with Seltzer:
1 bath chamomile milk
1 cup seltzer
Pour the milk into a tall glass. Add the seltzer and stir just until blended. Add ice and serve. This is delicious! Sort of tastes like an ice cream soda. Yummy!
