Passive Aggressive Pop

I think it might be a good time to teach you how to make your own soda's.


2 Tablespoons Sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1/4 teaspoon Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Bottled Lime Juice
1 Cup Club Soda

Mix all the ingredients together and pour over ice.

Root Beer

1 ts Dry yeast
1/2 c. Warm water
2 c. Granulated sugar
1 qt. Hot water
4 ts. Root beer extract

Dissolve the yeast in the warm water. Next dissolve the sugar in hot water. Mix together the two waters and the root beer extract in a gallon jar. (plastic is best because of pressure) Fill the jar with warm water and stir until all the ingredients are mix well together. Cover the jar and set in the warm sun for at least 4 hours. The soda will be ready to drink the next day. Chill the Root Beer and serve. If you don't chill, it will turn into alcohol.

Grape Soda

1/2 gallon grape juice
1/2 gallon water

3/4 cup sugar

1/2 tsp ale or champagne yeast

Simmer juice, water and sugar in a stockpot for 30 minutes. Let cool and then add the yeast.
Let the soda stand at room temperature for 24 hours. Pour into bottles. Leave a 1-2 inch head space. Place on caps and put in a warm place for 24 hours. Refrigerate for another 24 before drinking.

Ginger Ale

3 1/2 cups water
4 inch long piece of ginger, peeled and chopped
2 Tbsp Vanilla extract
3 tsp lemon
1/2 tsp stevia powder
1 cup sparkling water or club soda per glass

Boil down the ginger in water for 10 minutes. Strain the ginger pieces out and reserve the ginger juice in a jar. Add the vanilla and lemon extracts and stevia. Allow to cool, store in the refrigerator as a concentrated syrup. To drink just pour 1/8 to 1/4 cup of syrup into 6-8 oz of sparkling water or club soda. Serve over ice.

You can make just about any flavored soda/pop by making a simple syrup from your private fruit stash, simply mix the simple syrup with club soda.
