Homemade Orange Soda

Have you ever tasted orange soda? The bubbles make it lighter and more refreshing than plain juice, and making your own at home is as simple as mixing juice and seltzer water.

Hands-on time:
2 minutes
Total time:

Kitchen Gear

Measuring cup
Tall pitcher
Spoon, for stirring
4 tall glasses


2 2⁄3 cups cold seltzer water (unflavored or orange-, grapefruit-, lemon- or lime-flavored)
1 1⁄3 cups orange juice
  Ice cubes (if you like)


  1. Put the seltzer in the pitcher, add the juice, and stir (be careful because it can foam up and overflow if the pitcher is short).
  2. Pour into the 4 tall glasses and add ice cubes if you like. Serve right away.

Fancy That!
For an even more interesting citrus flavor, use some grapefruit juice along with the orange juice.
