Fermented Lemonade Soda

From Cheryl Paswater from Contraband Ferments



Makes 1 quart

  • 6 cups water
  • 1 cup honey
  • 1 cup lemon juice (or other juice of your choice)
  • 1/2 cup fresh whey


  1. Warm the water in a saucepan over low heat, keeping it just warm enough to dissolve the honey – about 100 F. Whisk in the honey continuously until fully dissolved in the water. Turn off the heat, and remove the pot from the stove.

  2. Whisk the lemon juice and whey into the honey water until fully incorporated.

  3. Pour the lemonade through a narrow funnel flip-top bottles. Seal the bottles, and allow the lemonade to sit at room temperature to ferment at least four and up to seven days. You can open a bottle to check for fizziness and flavor, keeping in mind that the warmer your kitchen and the more time you allow, the sourer and more fizzy your soda will be.
