Cherry Lime Fizz

Cherry Lime Fizz

This cherry lime fizz is refreshing and reminiscent of Belgian beer flavours. Traditional Belgian beer flavours often include fruity twists such as cherry and lime, which retain their popularity in other refreshing drinks in Belgium. No added sugar makes this an ideal non-alcoholic refreshment for a hot summer’s day.
