Honey Lemon Soda

Allen Bixby
The idea for this refreshing house-made treat came from a new shop in DC’s Petworth neighborhood. Three Little Pigs is a salumeria of locally-sourced meats and pickled preserves. They also sell hand-crafted local salts, artisanal breads and delicious, sparkly drinks made with all-natural ingredients. Experimenting back at home, this is our version. We like that you can adjust the sweetness to your own taste, as each glass is made.

About the Author Allen Bixby

A retired restaurateur, not quite ready to stop playing in the kitchen.

I have had the pleasure of watching amazing high end chefs, and classic American style diner cooking, creating a very diverse background with food. Add both parents teaching English, watching Julia Childs and Graham Kerr as a child, and learning to bake bread from my Finnish great grandma, and you get a decent recipe for a knowledgeable voice to write about food.

From recipe design to equipment testing, there is a broad spectrum of entertaining aspects of food and how we do what we do every day to feed our loved ones!
