By Dani @cook.like.a.tid

INGREDIENTS 

- 3 bottles of Jones Soda Merry Variety Pack (Strawberry-Lime, Green Apple, and Cream)
- 2 cups of Heavy Whipping Cream
- 1 box of graham crackers
- 15 tbsp of unsalted butter (softened + divided)
- 2/3 cup granulated sugar
- 1 pint of blackberries
- 1 green apple
- 8 oz of strawberries (divided)
- Zest of 1 lime, lemon, and orange (divided)
- 1/8 tsp of fresh or dried thyme + rosemary (finely chopped)
- Salt
- Cinnamon (for garnish)
- Non Stick Spray
- Three 6 inch mini pie tins

INSTRUCTIONS

For graham cracker crust: In batches, put packages of graham crackers in a plastic bag and crush until you have 3 cups worth. Add to a large mixing bowl. Mix in 12 tbsp of softened butter (cut into smaller pieces) by hand until combined. Spray mini pie tins and add graham cracker mixture until crust is evenly formed. Refrigerate for at least one hour.

In 3 separate small saucepans, pour one bottle of each Jones Soda and bring to a boil. Reduce until about 1/4 cup. Meanwhile, dice green apple and 6 oz of strawberries into small 1/4 inch pieces. Zest lime, lemon, and orange (divide into halves.) In batches, melt 1 tbsp of butter on high heat, add fruit, and a dash of salt (and 1/8 tsp of rosemary and thyme to the Strawberries). Stir and cook for about 3 minutes.

Add Jones Strawberry Lime Soda reduction to the cooked strawberries and half of the zest of 1 lime, and cook on high heat until almost all of the liquid is gone.

Add Jones Green Apple Soda reduction to the cooked apples and half the zest of 1 lemon, and cook on high heat until almost all of the liquid is gone. Reserve a tbsp of compote.

Add Jones Cream Soda reduction to the cooked blackberries and zest of 1 orange, and cook on high heat until almost all of the liquid is gone. Reserve a tbsp of compote and a tbsp of the liquid.

Once each compote is done, put into individual bowls and let cool completely. Meanwhile, put 2 cups of heavy whipping cream into a stand mixer with the whisk attachment and beat on medium-high heat until stiff peaks are formed. Do not add sugar to your whipped cream. Chill until all compotes are room temperature. One at a time, fold in about 1 1/3 cup of whipped cream to each compote until combined. Put each mixture into a crust.

Decorate strawberry tartlet with thinly sliced remaining strawberries and layer in circles. Garnish with remaining lime zest.

Boil down 2 cups of soda in different pots (one pot per flavor). You want to boil for about 20-30 minutes, until thick when you stir. Be careful not to burn! If you keep it on too long, it will become hard. Let cool.
