I have a recipe for cream soda (I could have sworn I got it here but can't find it now). I think I'm going to try making it this weekend as it looks pretty simple. I guess I'll put in some Splenda instead of sugar though.
Please share this cream soda recipe with us BrewJen. I'd love to know how to make it. I'm not a big soft drink person, but occasionally I like a cream soda. Does your recipe make lots or can it be made on a demand basis?
Here it is. I've never made it before so I don't know for sure how much it makes, but since it requires one quart of soda water, I figure it is somewhere around there. If I'm re-posting a recipe someone else already put on here, I apologize.
Vanilla Bean Cream Soda Keep things cool with a simple, homemade version of this soda shoppe classic. Thick with the flavor of fresh vanilla, served chilled in a tall glass, this homemade cream soda is a delightfully easy summer treat. 2 cups sugar 1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract 1/4 tsp of almond extract 1 quart soda water, chilled Combine 1 cup of water with the sugar in a medium saucepan. Scrape the seeds from the vanilla bean and add . Boil over medium-high heat, until the sugar dissolves. Let syrup cool before stirring in the vanilla extract. In a large pitcher or bowl, combine with soda water, stirring gently to combine. *For an extra-cool party effect: Serve in a large punch bowl with dry ice. *Cherry-Cream Soda: Add 1 packet of cherry kool-aid and 1/2 tsp. almond extract for a beautiful, bright red soda.
I am not positive about vanilla but if it is cream soda and it can be diet my mother-in-law just might flip over it. She only drinks diet and keeps a 12 pack in her car for when she visits people (us) who never drink the same.
Someone gave me an old-fashioned paper crate filled with bottles of the stuff for Christmas. I couldn't believe they still made this, and it reminded me of what we had when I was a kid. I'd love to figure out how to make it. Thank you for sharing the recipe you have!
