    diced fruit (mango, guava, raspberry, or strawberry)

    Juice of 1 lemon
    seltzer, water, and ice for serving
    Combine fruit, sugar, lemon juice, and 2 cups of water in a small saucepan over low heat, and let simmer for 30 minutes. Let cool, then puree in a blender until smooth, and return to saucepan over medium heat and let reduce by half into a thick syrup.
    Pour through a fine mesh sieve to remove any solid fibers, and reserve remaining syrup. Chill until cool.
    To make soda: Combine 1/4 cup syrup with 1 cup seltzer and serve over ice. Syrup keeps at least two weeks stored in refrigerator.
