Raspberry Hibiscus Soda for a Baby Shower

A group of us are throwing a special surprise baby shower for a dear friend of ours – Jamie from My Baking Addiction. There are lots of amazing baked sweets on the menu, so I thought I would bring a long a little something pretty to drink with this Raspberry Hibiscus Soda Recipe.

I am so excited for Jamie to embark on the awesome journey of motherhood as she awaits the birth of her sweet baby girl. I have had so much fun with my own baby girl, who is hardly a baby anymore at 6, that I get a little giddy every time another baby girl is born into this world.
