Flowers in SpriteSomebody told me that if you put Sprite in your water for your flowers it would make them last longer. So I wanted to test it out.
I also read that if you use vodka that would work as well. So I took three identical vases and flowers from the same arrangement and put them all in vases.
The first one with half Sprite and half water. The second one was two thirds water and a third vodka. The last one was just straight water.
About three days in, the Vodka Water started to turn yellow and the flowers are not doing so well. At day 7, both the Sprite and the water are about the same. It looks like the Sprite is about to make a turn for the worse but we'll see in a couple days.
I was really hoping I had something new and exciting to tell you the secret sauce to making your flowers last forever. My recommendation is to drink the Vodka and save the Sprite for another recipe.
Maybe I'll try wine next time but that seems like a waste.
Happy Mother's Day!!!!
