Cranberry Soda, Homemade

Posted on January 5th, 2013 by Dan

cranberry-sodaHappy 2013 to all. For the holidays we experimented with making sodas. We’ve already had amazing success with ginger beer, so I decided to do a cranberry version. I made two batches,¬†augmenting¬†the original ginger beer recipe differently. Cranberry Soda #1 is all cranberry, while #2 is more like a sparkling cranberry lemonade. The recipes are below and you can just follow the directions from the ginger beer post. Both are great on their own or mixed with some sake or vodka as a cocktail on ice.

Cranberry Soda #1

Ingredients

  • 22.5 oz water
  • 6.75 oz cranberry juice
  • 6.75 oz simple syrup
  • 1/8 tsp champagne yeast

Cranberry Soda #2

Ingredients

  • 22.5 oz water
  • 6.75 oz simple syrup
  • 4.5 oz lemon juice
  • 2.25 oz cranberry juice
  • 1/8 tsp champagne yeast

NOTE: You can mix an additional 2 oz water with 1/4 oz simple syrup to top the bottles, until ~2.5″ space is left at the head.
