    Default REC: Homemade Cream Soda


    Made my first homemade cream soda yesterday. Dang, is it wonderful.
    I like it best made with seltzer water rather than club soda.

    Here's how I made it

    Photos and step by step if interested.

    Cream Soda

    beverages

    2 cups sugar
    1 cup Water
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    or a combination of vanilla and; almond extract

    In a small saucepan add the two cups of sugar to one cup water. Slowly
    bring to a boil, stirring occasionally until sugar is dissolved.
    Remove from heat. Add the vanilla.
    I like the combination of half a teaspoon of vanilla and half a
    teaspoon of almond extract.
    Cool the syrup.

    In a 12 oz glass filled with ice, add about 1/8 cup of syrup, add
    seltzer water, stir and enjoy. Add more or less syrup according to
    your taste.

    I checked out your blog. What size glass did you use? It looks
    like there was way more soda mix than
    seltzer. Have you made it in a larger glass with more soda?

    I use a 12 oz glass. The amount of syrup is 1/8 a cup or approximately
    2 tablespoons syrup. There is more seltzer/soda than syrup. The syrup
    is pretty sweet so more than that, for my taste, would be too much.
    One of the nice things about making your own soda is you can mix it to
    your liking. You like a sweeter, stronger flavored soda? add more
    syrup. Me, I prefer it more "seltzier" or less sweet so I'm even
    considering cutting back on the syrup even more, or, as you say, make
    it in a larger glass.

    Thank you for your questions. I hope you get a chance to make it
    sometime soon.

    I wonder if you can make it with stevia? I'm trying to cut sugar to
    practically nothing these days.

    My question, too. Stevia or even Splenda.

    I don't see why not. Someone I know had a huge bag of dried stevia
    leaves and gave me some. They're unbelievably sweet! I'd just steep
    the leaves. You could put the stevia water into the soda maker and
    carbonate it, but it won't have that creamy consistency of real cream
    soda.

    I know it can be made with splenda so I don't see why not.

    I'm going to try it too! I love cream soda and haven't had it in years.

    Speaking of that... I came across the formula I was using for
    sugar replacement (more geared to baking because if has the same
    bulk as sugar--unlike Splenda, which just measures like sugar):

    equivalent to 1 c of sugar:
    1/2 c Diabetisweet (can one even find that now?)
    1/4 xylitol
    1/4 erythritol

    I think Splenda would work fine flavorwise, because you are not
    contending with something that is sour to begin with. Of course,
    you would lack the body of a normal syrup. Somewhere I think I
    have a formula that is supposed to compensate for that. (I
    believe the commercial product that did that went off the market a
    few years ago. It might have been called NotSugar.)
