Sweet-tart lime. Bright cherry. Creamy vanilla.
Natural sodas are vibrantly flavored with the zing of just-squeezed citrus juice, the sweetness of ripe berries, or the subtle perfume of fresh herbs. And with the popularity of countertop appliances that turn tap water into sparkling water, it’s easier than ever to make the real thing in your own kitchen: simply mix a fresh soda/>

bookmarked in Evernote: Boiled Apple Syrup, Basil Syrup, and Spices Maple Syrup.

Interesting quote from the Very Cherry Cola recipe: "think about it! cherry flavor is no more like cherry than carob is like chocolate. Although we may associate cherry flavor with cherries, it is mostly because the foods it flavors are commonly dyed red. it looks like a cherry, but tastes like... almond extract. that's right. the flavor of all cherry-flavored concoctions is almond. the aromatic in almond extract is

I pre-ordered this book on amazon in January after my husband bought me a bottle of P&H Soda's hibiscus syrup for Christmas and it arrived in the mail today. I love everything about it. It's got great little tidbits of information and a really widely varied range of soda syrups so there's really something for everyone. In addition to the syrups, it also has recipes for sodas, egg creams and egg shakes, cocktails and hot beverages made with the syrups in the book. There's a good mix of tradit ...more

Pretty little book about making your own syrups for sodas and what-not. Definitely inspiring. Pretty simple, though at times weird-sounding, recipes. If you're into entertaining, some things to try.

I'm so in love with this book.

Just skip the banana syrup; it's not good. Blech.

This is a pretty cool book. It is neat to think that people use to do this all the time.

I ran across this at random and picked it up on a whim as I often do with books about concocting drinks--particularly having recently picked up a SodaStream machine for fashioning my own seltzer and sodas at the beginning of the new year. Certainly with some lovely photographs it does a reasonable job of harkening back to an older time. There are a handful of small asides and historical facts - though not nearly enough in my mind and it could have included some photos of early and mid-century so ...more

Basically a book about simple syrups and how to turn them into sodas. A good friend of mine would probably like this book but I am only interested moderately. The only recipe that I want to remember because I am thinking about making an alcoholic version is the sasparilla recipe.

2c water
1 3/4 c sugar
4 oz dried sasparilla root
1 oz dried birch root (I'm gonna use cola nut instead)
pinch of salt

Water, sugar to a boil. Add dried ingredients and salt and

was cool to come across this book by one of my fellow greenpoint food market alums! really inventive ideas in here, though i thought that some of the info was not was clearly explained (like what a "phosphate" is). but fun ideas and nice photos would make this a good little book to keep on the shelf if you're interested in diy sodas or mixers.

I have read every soda-making book I can get my hands on and this one is my personal favorite. Fresh recipes, I have been in love with most of them I have tried. Gorgeous photos. Five stars all the way!

I love this cookbook. It's not a cocktail book, or how to make soda necessarily--it's just how to make all these fresh syrups with such extraordinary flavor combinations. Then, they have instructions to use them all over the spectrum of mixing. It's very unique!
