Stubborn Soda Black Cherry with Tarragon Flavor

To truly create something great you have to do it the Stubborn Way.

Every since that first sip of ice cold soda, people have been hooked on it. Soda is fizzy, sweet, bubbly, and refreshing.

Most of the big companies have resulted to using cheaper ingredients like high fructose corn syrup that is not as good for you.
