I love my SodaStream and making my own flavoured syrup is a fun little activity I like to do every so often, especially if it’s not a flavour that is sold in stores. Light and sweet, this strawberry basil combo is one of my favourites. This homemade SodaStream flavour is refreshing, flavourful, and simple. If you don’t have a SodaStream, simply use store-bought fizzy water.

Recipe Variation

  • Freeze some lemon juice in an ice tray and add it to your homemade strawberry soda to add a bit of tartness to it.
  • Swap the fresh strawberries for frozen.
  • Add in some mint instead of basil for a minty flavour.
  • Add some booze to this to make it into a fruity cocktail.
  • Want it sweeter? Add in extra sugar.

Tips and Notes

  • I like to make this syrup 1 to 2 days ahead of time if I plan on making a large batch for a gathering.
  • This SS model is the closest to the one I have.
  • You can definitely make this with different berries.
