Recipe: DIY Orange Soda

Via Food52


  • 4 oranges
  • 1 lime
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • Lemon lime seltzer water


Zest the oranges and the lime and add all of the zest to a
medium sauce pan.
Now juice the oranges, adding the juice to
the pot. You need 2 cups fresh orange juice.
Add the sugar and bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat. Once at a boil, reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for about 8 to 10
minutes, or until the syrup has reduced by about 1/3.
Removethe syrup from the stove and let cool slightly. Pour the syrup
through a fine mesh strainer into a glass jar. Discard the pulp
and zest from the strainer and place the jar in the fridge until
the liquid is cold, about one hour.
When you’re ready for a drink, mix one part syrup and two
parts seltzer in a glass filled with ice. Stir it up and serve with an
orange slice if desired. Enjoy!
