Homemade Citrus Soda

Perhaps I am pining the end of my beloved Summer or desperately attempting to lift my spirits in the midst of a cold and rainy welcome to Autumn, whatever it is, today I bring to you our homemade citrus soda recipe.

The perfect mix of orange, lemon, lime and grapefruit with a delicate sparkle from the soda - this tangy beverage is great for an afternoon sweet-treat, or mix a little of the syrup with your favourite champagne or sparkling white wine for a sneaky Friday night spritzer!

1. strain the fresh juices through a fine sieve to remove pulp & any sneaky seeds
2. combine all the ingredients in a saucepan over a medium-low heat, stir until sugar disolves
3. increase heat, bring to boil, then turn down to low & simmer gently until liquid reduces & thickens
4. remove from heat & allow to cool for 10 minutes
5. pour into prepared jars or bottles.
6. mix with sparkling water/soda/wine, garnish with a lemon rind & mint. ENJOY!

* honey can be substituted for agave nectar.


  1. this looks so delicious! I think I need some fizzy in my belly right now -even though it is early in the morning here. thanks so for sharing! xo

    1. I must admit, I've been having a sneaky nip mid-morning here too. We make our own sparkling water so it's just so darn easy to add a little syrup for a treat!

      Have a lovely day, Rebecca!
