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   |    Total time: 2   |    Makes: 4 Servings


Measuring cup
Tall pitcher
Spoon, for stirring
4 tall glasses


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


Wash your hands with soap and water, then gather all your equipment and ingredients and put them on a counter.

  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.

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