With the days getting warmer, the craving to quench your thirst with something sweet and icy is getting stronger. It’s easy enough to grab a bottle of coke from the store, but where is the fun in that.
Get creative and make your own soda pop that will surely be a hit with your family and friends.
This recipe from sheknows.com is quick and simple:
- 1/2 to 3/4 cup water
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup fresh fruit juice or concentrated fruit juice (the more concentrated the juice, the more intense the final flavour).
- Combine the ingredients in a heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil, then turn down the heat and let simmer until the mixture is reduced by half. (To intensify the flavour, you can add a dash of an appropriately flavoured extract).
- Store the finished syrup in a squeeze bottle in the refrigerator for instant access.
- To make homemade soda, simply add syrup to a glass of ice and top off with seltzer water or club soda.
