Do you want it a little sweeter, or with a tickly touch ? You can add some apple juice or juice, or cider. It is delicious!

  • 1 jar with a liter of sweet cider
  • 1 bunch of fennel
  • Squeezed natural lemon
  • A pinch of lemon zest

Fennel drink with cider

Instead of water alone, you put half cider, half water. You can also add a liquefied apple, so it is a little thicker.

If you want it sweeter, you can put sugar, or use some stevia leaves, which will also sweeten, and is healthier because it does does not rise your sugar in blood. You can play with the intensity of the fennel flavor, putting more or less quantity.

Fennel soda  is an excellent wild drink to quench thirst throughout the summer. Try it !!!
