Sonic... At Home

I'm a big fan of Sonic drinks. Love 'em! If you get one between 2-4pm, they're even fairly inexpensive, as they're half price at that time each day. But I've found a cheaper way to get the same yumminess at home.

I'd mentioned last year that I found coffee syrups at Sam's Club. Each bottle is less than $5. The bottles I bought last year just ran out, so I bought more this week. (Seriously, a very good value, IMO.) I have vanilla, raspberry, and coconut.

Mix a soft drink with whatever combo of syrups you want (I mixed raspberry and vanilla into my Sierra Mist), and voila! A drink like you'd get a Sonic (of course, without the special ice) for much less and without the drive.

I love fruity herbal teas with a little Sprite Zero - Tazo's Passion Tea is my current favorite!

I think we just got a Sonic in these parts. Will have to check it out.

Those drinks look delish!! I like using the different cordials (dilute juices) we get here and mixing them with lemonade. Lime cordial is lovely mixed with ginger beer. mmmm.
