Fresh Lemon Soda Recipe

Lemon soda is one of the most loved drink or summer beverage. It is easy to make and is so refreshing during hot summer days. You can make lemon soda tons of different ways. I like to enjoy my lemon soda with sugar and salt added, hubby likes his with only salt. In this blog post I have shared all different ways of making lemon soda, so make one and enjoy.

Here’s a simple and refreshing fresh lemon soda recipe that you can make at home:


  • 2 large lemons (or 3 medium lemons)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar (adjust to taste)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 cups cold soda water (club soda or sparkling water)
  • Ice cubes
  • Fresh mint leaves (optional, for garnish)
  • Lemon slices (optional, for garnish)


  1. Make the Lemon Syrup:
    • In a small saucepan, combine the sugar and water.
    • Heat over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugar has completely dissolved.
    • Remove from heat and let it cool to room temperature. This is your simple syrup.
  2. Prepare the Lemons:
    • Roll the lemons on the counter with your hand to soften them up (this helps to extract more juice).
    • Cut the lemons in half and juice them. You should get about 1/2 cup of lemon juice.
  3. Mix the Ingredients:
    • In a pitcher, combine the lemon juice and the cooled simple syrup.
    • Add the cold soda water and stir gently to combine.
  4. Serve:
    • Fill glasses with ice cubes.
    • Pour the lemon soda mixture into the glasses.
    • Garnish with fresh mint leaves and lemon slices if desired.
  5. Enjoy:
    • Serve immediately and enjoy your refreshing fresh lemon soda!


  • Adjust the sweetness by adding more or less sugar according to your taste.
  • For a slightly different flavor, you can add a splash of lime juice or a few drops of vanilla extract.
  • To make it more festive, consider adding a splash of grenadine for a pink lemonade soda.

This homemade lemon soda is perfect for a hot day and is sure to be a hit with family and friends!
