Maple Soft Drink (Soda Pop)

Maple Soda Pop is a great tasting drink that tastes a lot like a maple flavored cream soda. Maple soft drinks are a healthy alternative to other soft drinks. There’s no high fructose corn syrup, no artificial coloring, flavors or preservatives. You simply mix maple sugar into carbonated water.


Add 5 ounces (10 tablespoons) of maple sugar to one liter of carbonated water. You can adjust sweetness by adding more or less maple sugar.


To avoid making a mess, do not pour maple sugar into a container with a narrow top or neck. ALWAYS add the sugar to the carbonated water. This will prevent the eruption of liquid and foam.
