Sandy’s Delicious Carbonated Orange Juice

Like carbonation in your orange drink? You don’t have to buy somebody’s not very tasty orange soda. Make your own. It’s SO easy and tastes GREAT.

All you need is about two cups of orange juice, fresh squeezed for best flavor but if you’re in a rush, a good quality commercial orange juice will do fine. You add about 1/4-1/2 teaspoon of baking soda to the juice (depending on how much carbonation you want) and stir briskly (maybe 20 seconds) until you see some fizz at the surface. Then drink it for a treat compared to plain OJ.

The small amount of baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) you’ve added to the orange juice will have NO effect on the flavor, but the bubbles from the carbonation will produce a nice tingling sensation on your tongue. You can do it with any fruit juice that is acidic, like pineapple juice.

Watch out for overflowing foam when you add the baking soda!
