Seventeen years later, it’s a veritable institution, replete with celebrity sightings, reviewer accolades and dedicated aficionados.

Brooklyn Soda Works makes high quality, healthy sodas right here in Brooklyn that are super fresh and super fun.
We start with tons (literally!) of fruit and herbs from upstate NY, Long Island and NJ. First the fruit is juiced, then we add fresh herbs or spices, and finally we add CO2 to make it bubbly. A Brooklyn Soda Works soda always tastes exactly like the fruit it is made out of.
We like interesting flavor combinations but we keep the ingredients simple and straight-forward (our apple ginger has exactly 4 ingredients- apple, ginger and lemon juices and water). We never use “natural” flavors, preservatives, syrups or concentrates. Unlike other fruit sodas out there, we use more than just a few drops of fruit juice – the first item in our ingredient list is always fresh fruit juice, never water.WebsiteTwitterFacebook

Mexicue is the sweet, sweet love child of red-hot Mexican cuisine and down-home, barbeque goodness. Here’s the Mexicue nutshell: They started mixing smoky and spicy in their own kitchen in Brooklyn.

In fact, it was an explosive, mouthwatering union.WebsiteTwitterFacebook
