Real Grape Soda Recipe

Made with real grape juice, this soda is a far cry from the syrupy sweetness of commercial grape sodas. It’s an interesting change of pace for adults, and it’s a fun treat for children, too. Makes 1 gallon.

Ingredients:

1/2 gallon grape juice
1/2 gallon water
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon ale or champagne yeast



Instructions:

Simmer juice, water and sugar in a stockpot for 30 minutes. Let cool, and then add the yeast. Let the soda stand at room temperature for 24 hours, then use a funnel to pour the soda into bottles. Leave 1 to 2 inches of empty space at the top of the bottle and attach the bottle caps. Write the date on the bottles and store them in a warm, draft-free place, ideally at room temperature, for an additional 24 hours. Then refrigerate. For best results, let the soda sit an additional day or two in the refrigerator before drinking.
