Strawberry-Lavender Soda Pop Recipe

This soda is based on strawberry juice, which you can purchase at health-food stores or make yourself by cooking 2 quarts of strawberries in a small amount of water until soft, then squeezing the juice out through muslin cloth.

5 cups strawberry juice
2 cups pear or apple juice
4 tablespoons dried lavender flowers
1 1/2 cups white sugar
3 quarts water
1/8 teaspoon yeast plus 1/4 cup water

Simmer strawberry juice, pear juice, lavender flowers and sugar for 10 minutes. Proceed with steps 2 to 7 of the Tonic Root Beer Recipe. Makes ten 16-ounce bottles.
