Dandelion Flower Soda Recipe

This Dandelion Flower soda is a simple fermented drink that has a flavour a little like a sparkling honey lemonade.

Some people describe it as tasting a bit like sunshine in a bottle and to be honest I think I’d agree – it has a beautiful milky yellow colour and can be used directly as it is, chilled on ice or can be mixed in to a summery cocktail – I like to add it instead of soda in to a mojito!


In a 500ml bottle add :

  • 30g sugar
  • a tiny bit of wine yeast
  • 400ml water
  • 10 fully open dandelion flowers (best picked in the morning for most flavour)
  • the juice of half a lemon
