Why I Love This Recipe

Hi Everyone - I confess, I like soda, pop...whatever you want to call it. I just created a homemade version of flavored soda by accident. I haven't gone grocery shopping in a while so I completely ran out of water. However, I had some leftover sparking water from my root beer vodka adventure. So here's what I did:

Ingredients You'll Need

1 glass (ice optional)
sparkling water
1 packet of powdered flavoring (something like crystal light)


Pour sparking water in glass and then add powered flavoring into glass until it gets to the flavor consistency you desire.

I used one of those thin packets (on the go or something).

I used lemon flavoring, but you can use any of the flavors available.

It's low calorie, low sugar and easy to adjust to the sweetness you desire.

No need to add sugar.

The drink is refreshing and fun with the little bubbles. :)

Questions, Comments & Reviews

My kids love to add crystal light lemonade and sprite together but this sounds just as easy and maybe better. Thanx

oh my god i love soda likeso much i need to drink it everyday im so gonna try tour recipe thanks

how fun!

I do this with fruit juice. My kids don't like pop because it's too sweet and too fizzy. This way, we can add just the amount of fizz we like to a drink we already know is good for them.

Thanks guys! It adds a bit of a "kick" to low sugar powdered drinks. :) I think that I used was called sparkling water. Just don't use tonic water! :) Let me know if you try it. I'm interested in knowing if I'm the only one that likes it.

what a great idea! I will try it soon!

Eeeeek ! I love sparkling water, too, and I drink Crystal Light. So - I'll just try your recipe as soon as I get to the store and get more sparkling water - is that like Club Soda - that's what I'm thinking of.
