Cool Drinks, NY: Ginger and Hisbicus Soda at P&H Soda Co. at Mad. Sq. Eats
Tucked in the triangle between Eataly and Shake Shack is Worth Park, home to the popular month-long food market Mad. Sq Eats. Donny covered the opening day of the market last Friday and it's certainly worth going out of your way for. Where else can you get Roberta's pizzas, Asia Dogs, and Momofuku desserts all within a few feet of each other?
While you're there, you shouldn't miss P&H Soda Co.'s made-to-order sodas. Syrup flavors change frequently, but when I visited, the options included Ginger, Cream, Lime, and Hibiscus. The best part? You can mix and match to create your own flavor of soda. With a little coaching from the owner, I went for both Ginger and Hibiscus, which produced a rosy-hued blend with ginger offering a spicy base to the lightly tart and floral flavor of the hibiscus.
We'll be back soon...gotta give lime-and-cream soda a try!
