Lime rickey soda celebrates Fruit Center Marketplace’s 40th

Simpson Spring Co., established in Easton in 1878, one of the oldest bottling plants in the country, uses its own spring water to make soft drinks. The pure water holds its carbonation well in the 12 sodas and four seltzers the bottler offers. The third-generation company sells to specialty markets and farmers’ markets, including its own weekly market. They don’t add flavors often and they don’t do private label. But they decided to offer a new sip in time for Fruit Center Marketplace’s 40th anniversary this month. Simpson owner James Bertarelli created an old-fashioned raspberry-lime rickey (99 cents), enhanced by a little blackberry syrup. It was so well received, the bottling company had to make more than it planned.  Simpson Spring raspberry-lime rickey soda at Fruit Center Marketplace, 10 Bassett St., Milton, 617-696-5224 and 79 Water St., Hingham, 781-749-7332, www.fruitcentermarketplace.com. RACHEL TRAVERS
