  • 1/2 - 1 liter seltzer water

Instructions

For the Simple Honey Syrup:

  1. Combine water with raw honey and cook over medium-high heat in a sauce pan until the honey is dissolved, then allow to cool. Set this aside because we’ll be using it in a little bit.

For the Homemade Strawberry Soda:

  1. Add fresh strawberries to a blender and quickly chop them to break them down.

  2. Then transfer the blended strawberries to a fine mesh strainer to press through the liquid into a bowl below. Repeat with the remaining strawberries until you have all the condensed strawberry juice in your bowl.
  3. Then, add that strawberry juice to the bottom of our bottle.
  4. Next, slowly add the seltzer water to the bottle, almost all the way up to the top.
  5. Then add a little of our raw honey simple syrup to sweeten the drink - you can taste at this point and decide how much you need.
  6. Continue to fill almost all the way to the top with your seltzer water and then seal bottle and place in the fridge to get nice and cold.

For the Homemade Orange Soda:

  1. Juice the oranges to get fresh orange juice. You can either strain the pulp from this juice or leave it as is. To strain it, press the juice through a fine mesh strainer.

  2. Then, add the orange juice to the bottom of the bottle or glass.

  3. Next, slowly add the seltzer water to the bottle, almost all the way up to the top.
  4. Then add a little of our raw honey simple syrup to sweeten the drink - you can taste at this point and decide how much you need.
  5. Continue to fill almost all the way to the top with your seltzer water and then seal bottle and place in the fridge to get nice and cold.

For the Homemade Lemon Lime Soda:

  1. Juice the lemons and limes.  To strain it, press the juice through the fine mesh strainer.

  2. Then, add that lemon and lime juice to the bottom of the bottle or glass.

  3. Next, slowly add the seltzer water to the bottle, almost all the way up to the top.
  4. Then add a little of our raw honey simple syrup to sweeten the drink - you can taste at this point and decide how much you need. You’ll probably need to add more of the simple syrup in this soda than the others, since the lemons and limes are less sweet naturally.
  5. Continue to fill almost all the way to the top with your seltzer water and then seal bottle and place in the fridge to get nice and cold.

For the Homemade Grape Soda:

  1. Ad fresh black grapes to a blender and quickly puree them. You can use any grapes, but I find black grapes to give the best color and flavor.
  2. Then transfer the blended grapes to a fine mesh strainer to press through the liquid into a bowl below. Repeat with the remaining grapes until you have all the condensed grape juice in your bowl.
  3. Then, add that grape juice to the bottom of the bottle or glass.

  4. And, slowly add the seltzer water to the bottle, almost all the way up to the top.
  5. Then add a little of our raw honey simple syrup to sweeten the drink - you can taste at this point and decide how much you need. The grapes are already pretty sweet so you wont need to add much simple syrup at all.
  6. Continue to fill almost all the way to the top with your seltzer water and then seal bottle and place in the fridge to get nice and cold.

For the Homemade Blackberry Soda:

  1. Add fresh blackberries to a blender and quickly puree them.

  2. Then transfer the blended blackberries to a fine mesh strainer so we can press through the liquid into a bowl below. You may need to add a little water to help it out in case it get’s too thick. Repeat with the remaining blackberries until you have all the condensed blackberry juice in your bowl.
  3. Then, add that blackberry juice to the bottom of the bottle or glass.

  4. Next, slowly add the seltzer water to the bottle, almost all the way up to the top.
  5. Then add a little of our raw honey simple syrup to sweeten the drink - you can taste at this point and decide how much you need.
  6. Continue to fill almost all the way to the top with your seltzer water and then seal bottle and place in the fridge to get nice and cold.
