It's Simple To Make Your Own Soda
Just about any flavor of soda can be made at home with the help of a flavored simple syrup. And just like the name implies, it's simple to make.
If you feel like you've been missing out on homemade soda because you don't own one of those fancy do-it-yourself machines, don't fret. Soda is a pretty simple thing to make — flavored syrup is mixed with sparkling water. That's it.
The syrup is the key. Making your own syrups at home puts you in complete control of the sweetness and flavor combinations of your bubbly concoction, without high fructose corn syrup, unidentified natural flavors or preservatives.
We've used sweet, in-season strawberries in our recipe below, but any in-season or frozen fruit can be used; try peach, blackberry, blueberry or cherry.
