in the studio :: homemade cream sodas12:00 AM
Welcome to In The Studio, a place to show off your studio and meet some great artists! Do you ever have those weeks when your creativity level is just low? I'm sure you do. I think between feeling under the weather this week and then hearing of Jeremy's grandmother passing followed by a sudden trip to the states, I was just feeling blah and creativity has been the last thing on my mind. So, in all honesty, I might be stretching it a bit this week, but who says a good recipe isn't being creative?
Perhaps it was seeing the names of the colors of Warby Parker's new Ocean Avenue collection that inspired me, but I decided to try my hand at making homemade cream soda. I tested it out at a sleepover at our house with a lot of kids, and it was an instant hit.
Homemade Cream Soda
1. Dissolve 2 cups of sugar into 1 cup of water in a pan on the stovetop. After the solution boils and the sugar is dissolved, take it off the heat and cool for 5 minutes.
2. Stir in 1 tablespoon of vanilla. This is your syrup! Put in the fridge and allow to cool.
3. Depending on how sweet you want it will depend on the syrup/carbonated water ratio. For the glasses in the photo, I did roughly 1/4 to 1/2 cup syrup and the rest carbonated water. Stir.
4. Add a scoop of ice cream and enjoy!
