A delicious homemade soda/spritzer. Be dazzled by an effervescent burst of healing berry box-office smash delight! A good preventive or healing tonic for flu, too (elderberry, doncha know). Enjoy! They don't sell kicked up soda like THIS in any corn-syrup-laden vending machine, I'll tell youzzz that! No, this is exclusive to BTDers! Homemade, kicked up, very berry, flu-busting, immune-building, thirst-quenching, taste-thrilling, BERRY, BERRY GOOD SODA! Yeah, baby.
