    One thought on “Homemade Soda”

    1. Making my own soda is something I've been interested in for awhile, so I approached Andrew Schloss's Homemade Soda with a lot of curiosity. Primarily a recipe book for soda, with a bit of interesting historical detail and humor sprinkled in here and there, the book is fairly straightforward in approach and the recipes are generally very simple to follow. There are three approaches to soda making and many of the recipes can be made with all three (although some are restricted to only one approach [...]

    2. This could be the first "cookbook" I've ever considered buying after flipping through it.Do you want all-natural cola? Here's how, with three different methods depending on the amount of time you have. Green tea coconut soda? Cardamom apricot soda?? Orange honey ginger ale??? Cocoa chile soda???? You could make soda pop until you were 85 and not make it through all the recipes.Granted, I haven't tried any of these yet, but the drool factor alone is worth a few stars. And the explanations are ver [...]

    3. This book is full of delightful ideas and flavor combinations that have, so far, seduced me at the kitchen table, but I've yet to buy my own seltzer bottle, probably because I'm just too lazy. It's on my to-do-when-I've got-some-free-time list, and right now sits on my bookshelf as simply great food porn.

    4. The recipes look easy, for the most part. I've opted to use the seltzer method, rather than making my own seltzer with a siphon, and my honey almond cream soda is currently delicious. There are several other recipes I can't wait to try, too!

    5. This is such a fun book! It's full of history and trivia and all sorts of fascinating recipes. It is fun to read and dream over, but I can't seem to bring myself to actually make anything out of it. The colas and root beers tend to call for ingredients that are definitely in the hard to find category and the fruit sodas (which I was most looking forward to) are--for my taste buds--odd combinations that hold no appeal for my family.Are you determined to make your own sodas not matter what? This i [...]

    6. This was a far more in-depth introduction to soft drinks than I had expected, with tons of recipes that range from pedestrian to truly wacky. I wasn't expecting so much history thrown in, either! This book is really worth a gander for curious cooks and herbalists.

    7. In this day and age of endless chemical laden sodas, one begins to dream of a simpler time. A time when soda was made with real sugar. A time when flavors of soda actually tasted like something nature made. I remember my parents had purchased a home soda maker from Schwan's when I was a child. I loved the idea of making my own soda. Even today, I collect recipes for all natural homebrewed sodas but brewing my own is intimidating. I could make it, it's not that hard but I always feel like I need [...]

    8. This one's definitely on my to-buy list, as a print book. Perfect for summer especially; make your beverage after hitting the farmers market for the freshest fruit or other ingredients. From the colorful, slightly retro fun illustrations and photos to the wildly varied recipes, it's very enticing. The book begins with the highlights of the history of carbonation and soda and the history bits mixed in are pretty interesting. Then it covers three kinds of soda making: 1.) make your syrup with your [...]

    9. This is a surprisingly fun book. In addition to recipes, soda basics are covered--different sweeteners, natural soda ingredients, what goes into a siphon (soda-carbonating machine, like SodaStream), a brief history, and more. Also sprinkled through are short notes about history person/company X, phenomenon Y, and tips for specific recipes.The book explain the three different ways of making a soda: using a siphon, fermentation, and mixing a syrup with seltzer. Each has an easily-identifiable icon [...]

    10. This recipe book had everything I wanted:-Tons of recipes for syrups that can be carbonated-Interesting approaches to fruit-based mixes-The level of water-to-syrup for seltzer bottle carbonation-A wide variety of recipes to tryIf you are looking for lots of syrup recipes to try, then this is your book. The recipes are simple and quick, mostly making a puree or dissolving syrup, which you then add fizzy seltzer to. If you are looking for more complex recipes or brewing techniques, this may not be [...]

    11. 641.875 Sch39Soda is that drink which we in the Plains areas usually call “pop”. There is a distinct regional preference for what we call this drink, including “coke” with a small “c” which is generally used in the South. Soda comes from the connection to sodium, a mineral in natural spring water. Pop refers to the sound made when the cork is pulled from a carbonated beverage. So now that we know we are talking about the drinks we love, here is a book showing you the way to make your [...]

    12. You might call it soda, pop, or coke but whatever part of the world you are from you've most likely had a soda. Using beautifully illustrated and easy to understand recipes you will learn everything there is to know about soda from it's history to how it is made. The 200 recipes in this book rate from beginner to advanced, but there is most definitely something for everyone. Whether you want to make an egg cream or try your hand at birch beer or cola there's a recipe for you in this book. Some a [...]

    13. While I own this book and pull it out often to peruse its pages I can say honestly that I've never once actually made anything from this book.Now for many people that's nothing new - I however LOVE cooking. Love, Love, Love! I have my own collections of baby recipes, canning recipes, holiday recipes, camping recipes ect. All with my own notes and addendum's - I love nothing better than to rework and redo recipes to my own personal tastes.From what I can tell these recipes all sound amazing - why [...]

    14. After getting a SodaStream as a gift, I started buying their syrups and didn't love them. I do love it for seltzer, but crave different soda flavors. Along comes "Homemade Soda" and my quest is over! There are so many recipes that I will never be able to make them all (200, in fact)da syrups, teas, juices, flavored waters, floats, health drinks and more! And for those of you who don't have a soda machine or a siphon, most recipes for the syrups can just be mixed with bottled seltzer!The book its [...]

    15. I just came across this at the library by chance but it's exactly what I've been hoping to find. For various reasons, I've stopped drinking commercially made sodas, and although I feel great, I somewhat miss variety in my beverages. I'd already started making homemade gingerale with great success and am excited to try so many recipes in this book. My kids already enjoy helping make gingerale and knowing they'll grow up knowing how to make so many alternative drinks to the calorie and chemically [...]

    16. Can't wait to try out some of these drinks! What I like is that I don't have to buy expensive soda making equipment. The author gives you 3 options/techniques which helped me to pick out only the ones where I can just mix the ingredients with seltzer. Also, there were some terrific sections describing the history of soda as well as a number of colorful timelines as I'm a sucker for graphs!

    17. The author needs to choose which level of reader his is aiming at. Several times it feels like he is talking to ten year olds, and others at biochemists. I don't have a good feeling about this title.

    18. Fun book to read not just recipes. And I am not much of a soda fan. First researched the book as a gift for my hubby.

    19. bookmarked in Evernote: Spiced Balsamic Fig Sparkler, Ginger Beer Chicken Curry, and after seeing Shelley's review, added the Honey Almond Cream Soda.

    20. I made a few of these recipes using seltzer from my SodaStream and they were all excellent. I want to buy the book and try a lot more of 'em!

    21. tons of drink recipes, most with multiple ways to make them. as all but a few are syrups, they could be blended with water for a non-fizzy drink as well. some recipes use unusual ingredients.

    22. Lovely book for those of us with soda water makers. I've had a lot of fun exploring new recipes to make with my soda stream. I'm happy to say I've discovered a few lifetime keepers!

    23. Not sure middle school students would have the $$ or time or energy to create their own soda. Good book about creating healthier versions of favorites sodas but probably not for my demographic.

    24. I don't normally rate cookbooks if I haven't tried the recipes, but the amount of soda history and science nerdery is high and makes this book worth reading.
