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.

Chamomile milk:

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!

    This does sound good! With all the craziness from starting back to work and school starting, this might help with my brain wind down at night...Thanks!
  6. Definitely going to try this as a bedtime drink. We have a sodastream and love making our own pop.
