Homemade Grapefruit Soda recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen
Sweet and sparkling soda with a tangy and distinctly grapefruit flavor, this was a refreshing drink that both of my older boys were thrilled to have with their lunch.

I’ll admit that, with this combination, I was hoping for a drink that tasted like Fresca. This soda tastes nothing like Fresca, but it was delicious nonetheless.

A few months ago, I stumbled on the idea of making soda at home. I was surprised how incredibly easy it was and I’ve made this a couple times now.

Homemade Grapefruit Soda


  • 2 cups sparkling mineral water I used a store-brand generic water - it worked great
  • 3/4 cup simple syrup - recipe here I keep a jar of this in the fridge. It lasts forever and it's ready and cold when you want it
  • 1/4 cup fresh squeezed grapefruit juice plus more to taste if desired - this was slightly more than half the juice from a huge pink grapefruit


  • Squeeze the fruit and set aside the juice. Combine all ingredients in a pitcher and stir to combine. Pour over ice and serve immediately. Enjoy!

    We don't do sugary drinks here, either. So when we have diet cranberry ginger ale at Thanksgiving and Christmas, the boys are ecstatic to have a glass.

    I love this recipe. I've never made soda at home but I don't drink alcoholic drink much so it's nice to have different drinks option for non alcoholic like me. Such a refreshing taste – I'll be making this sometime soon!

    Squirt:-)…that is the grapefuit soda that we used to drink and it is so yummy! I like this method and nice to control the sugar content…I think we did something similar with lemon juice a while ago and it was wonderful..

    I just got a Sodastream and can't wait to try it out. I don't want to use the ready made syrups that are in the store and this looks so refreshing. I think I'll make this now. Have a good night.
