Tarkhun Soda

The bright green color of tarkhun is what first prompted us to try this Russian tarragon-flavored soda, but we're glad we did. It has a rather strange aroma of baby powder ("It smells like Infant!") but a pleasant, light citrusy flavor that is very quenching.

There are several brands for sale in the US, but you'll need to find a Russian market first - we've never encountered it in a mainstream supermarket. It's available in 16-ounce bottles, 12-ounce cans, and large 2-liter plastic bottles.

Tarkhun is Georgian, not Russian. While the bottle may be written in Cyrillic, tarkhun is the Georgian word for tarragon, the herb used to flavor this soda. I love it, too!
