This is actually a review of three books about making your own soda. I got all three books out of the trusty Baltimore County Public Library and had a wonderful time experimenting.
The Artisan Soda Workshop: 75 Homemade Recipes by Andrea Lynn
This is the best book for those looking for recipes for syrups to put into their SodaStream bottles for two reasons: the syrups are pretty good and the concentration is right. They recipes are typically 1.5 to 2 tablespoons per 8-10oz glass, so you will need ½ cup of syrup at the very most to work with the SodaStream 1 liter bottle - which is just perfect. Neither of the other books create syrups that have the right concentration. Indeed, this book is design for SodaStream and the author lists SodaStream as one of the essentials. The author is not affiliated with SodaStream. The book covers all the basic syrups and uses a variety of different sweeteners, picking the one that she most feels complements the recipes. As others have noted, this book is small, but that is just fine. When you only have a few ingredients on a page combined with some pretty basic instructions, you don't need to kill the trees. Two minor issues with the book: no index and no resources section. This book does not contain any information on fermentation for those interested in self-fizzing sodas.
Homemade Sodas: 200 Recipes by Andrew Schloss
This the best general book on making sodas, but not the best in any particular category, although it is the only one with a recipe section for using sodas in regular cooking.Read more ›
I love that the recipes use all sorts of different sweeteners including agave, honey, raw cane syrup, maple syrup or regular sugar. They each have their own characteristics when it comes to flavor so your resulting syrups will also carry a touch of flavor from the sweeteners. The author starts out with 'basic' soda flavors like cola, lemon-lime, etc but quickly moves into unique pairings like kumquat with rosemary or blackberry lavender. When you are making your own sodas, the possibilities are truly endless when it comes to flavors!
Along with traditional syrups there are also things like aqua frescas, shrubs, and even some concentrates for adding to alcoholic drinks like the Hot Buttered Bourbon. You can use the syrups for icecream floats, cocktails, or many other drinks. Personally, I think some of them would go great just drizzled over a bowl of oatmeal!
There are several very attractive photos scattered throughout the book and the recipes are very easy to follow.Read more ›
Why choose a healthy alternative to sodas if you are not using healthier ingredients.
The first recipe I tried was the pineapple basil (hold the sugar). Basil from the garden and pineapple juice from the pineapple tidbit can. It was tasty. One of my favorites.
We don't use sugar, and there are many recipes that are still great when you hold the sugar.
It's a good book to have in the reference library at home.
WOW...I am in love with this book and have made two pints of homemade Fresca already. One for me and one for a friend to try. Pictures to come. It is super easy and shockingly tasty. Who knew?!
I am not a big soda drinker and probably only soda, once a month and not a full glass either but occasionally I enjoy it.
Last year I wanted to get myself a SodaStream but financially there was never enough in the extra cash pile to do so, mostly because there is never an extra cash pile. However, you don't need a Soda Stream to use these recipes if you use Seltzer. As non soda drinkers, we have seltzer in the house most of the time and all these recipes can be used with Seltzer.
There are some pretty interesting ideas here too.
Make your syrup add it to the seltzer and you had homemade soda.
I even loaned the book out to a friend of mine who owns an Inn because I thought the recipes were so unique that she may want to use some of the ideas for specials on her menu.
The homemade Fresca I made was only seltzer, red grapefruit and agave syrup. So easy and delicious.
I am thinking of making myself a jar of Banana-Brown Sugar Syrup to put on top of my morning oatmeal. Sounds so good, I am craving it right now.
