There are times when nothing tastes better on a hot summer day than a nice cold Coca-Cola or root beer.  Although usually known as a beverage, soft drinks add a lot of sweet and tangy flavor to recipes. We suggest not trying to substitute diet colas when adding to recipes. Here are a few recipes that infuse soft drinks in every day recipes.

I don’t drink Mountain Dew often, but I love the flavor and think it would be fabulous added to both cupcakes and icing.
