Here's a simple recipe to get started:
- Make a base: Orange juice, lemon juice, and sugar. Personally, I like to add a little ginger.
- Add carbonated water to taste. Look for seltzer water that has no added salt.
A Mountain Dew clone is a very easy soda to make! It is mainly a citrus soda, which means it has citric acid in it. Traditionally, citric acid comes from citrus fruits, like oranges, lemons, and limes. Also, when I make citrus soda I like to add ginger also; to add it, buy ginger root from the grocery store, slice it up, and boil it in a small amount of water. Try experimenting with the different ingredients to see if you can come up with your own take on this classic citrus soda!
