Juneteenth is the holiday that celebrates the liberation of black American slaves in Texas on June 19,1865.
There are parades, exhibitions and of course, the annual barbeque. The menu is important: barbequed meat, watermelon, a dizzying array of pies and cakes. It is all washed down with the Juneteenth tradition beverage: red soda water.
But what is in that stuff, anyway?
