How to Make Pumpkin Soda

Pumpkins are one of my favorite things about fall and obviously I want to use them when they’re right in the peak of their season.

Plus, since this recipe doesn’t work as well with the canned stuff I only get this delicious soda a few times a year. Ready to make some?

Although, not originally from Santa Fe, I have lived here long enough to have assimilated completely into the culture of this mystical magical city. Santa Fe is truly unique. The community is eclectic and cosmopolitan, yet retains a small town feeling. Everybody knows everybody or know somebody who does. It’s a sleepy town where almost everything closes around 9:00 pm. Because of this a culture of private get-togethers and dinners at friends homes is the main source of social interaction.
