Lavender Fizz

This flowery, slightly sweet drink is a cross between soda and champagne and can contain a very small amount of alcohol. The carbonation is a natural by-product of the fermentation process, a sign that the fizz is active and alive.

I have recently moved to Baja California, where mangoes are in abundance during the months of June, July and August so we have used those here.
