Cream soda is a delicious treat, especially on a hot summer day with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. Its so easy to make all it takes is a little patience.
Ingredients (recipe for 500ml bottle):
- 1/4 cup of sugar
- 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
- a pinch of yeast
Using a funnel pour the the sugar, vanilla extract, yeast and water into a half liter bottle.
Shake the bottle until all the ingredients dissolve.
Then leave the bottle to sit at room temperature for up to 48 hours. You want the bottle to feel hard when you squeeze it, this means that the yeast has fermented to make the fizz. Make sure not to leave it in a hot place or left alone for longer than 48 hours because it may explode and you'll have a sticky mess!
Once its hard place the bottle in the fridge for between 24 and 48 hours to stop the fermentation and allow the yeast to settle at the bottom. Make sure not to shake the bottle up you don't want to have yeast floating in your drink.
If you find that this recipe tastes too much like yeast you can experiment with using more sugar and vanilla.
