Soda lovers can now quaff with a clear conscious at the new Tender Greens in Hollywood.
The house-made sodas not only taste better than the mass-marketed alternatives, they're also part of the owners' strategy to eliminate all bottled water and soda at the restaurant by year-end.
Thank the Ever Pure filtration system, which pumps out carbonated water for the sodas, plus crystal-clear flat water for general thirst-quenching.
The sodas are made with locally grown fruits and sweetened with agave, not high-fructose corn syrup. You'll always find crisp, clean-tasting lemon-lime and ginger ale on the menu, but the seasonal specials are grabbing our attention.
Right now, there's red grape that's a refreshingly real take on the sugary-sweet, fake purple stuff you find in cans (click here to download a home-friendly recipe). Look for strawberry, bing cherry and nectarine soon.
Making sodas in-house isn't just for quality control--they are concocted by chefs with discerning palates--it's also economical and eco-friendly.
By doing away with cans and bottles, there is less waste, and the restaurant's trash fees will go down. That means lower prices for you.
It's a delicious win-win for all.
