MYO Club Soda

A couple of years ago we received a Soda Stream for Christmas from a very good friend of ours. While we generally don’t drink much soda, we often make our own ‘Club Soda’ enhanced with fresh fruit or berries during the summertime.

Here’s how you can make your own for little to nothing (if you already happen to have a soda stream). If not you can turn seltzer water into club soda instead, which will cost you about .75 per bottle, depending on which brand you purchase.

MYO Club Soda

You’ll need:
Soda Stream
1 Pint Water
1/8 tsp Baking Soda, slightly rounded
PINCH Salt

Club soda is merely carbonated water that contains Sodium bicarbonate, sodium chloride, sodium phosphate, and sodium citrate. Sodium Bicarbonate is simply baking soda, that’s it. Sodium Chloride is just table salt. Sodium phosphate is another Salt, usually used as an emulsifier.

To make your club soda, combine 1 pint of water, baking soda and salt in a soda stream bottle, cap, shake well. Remove cap and carbonate according to the directions on your machine. Re-Cap until needed.

Seriously folks, that’s it! Soda stream starter kits can be found on Amazon.

    • Am I missing the directions for turning seltzer water to club soda? I don’t see it.

      I think you just add the salt and baking soda to the seltzer water which is just carbonated water.

      Club soda and seltzer are both carbonated water. The difference is club soda has baking soda added to make the ph be 7. CO2 is acidic.
