Fermented, Probiotic Honey Lemonade Soda

This naturally fermented lemonade soda is loaded with probiotics that give it its characteristic fizz and foam. A dryer soda, the lemonade is only slightly sweet and notes of honey play well with lemon. Serve it over ice, garnished with fresh lemon slices.

For the Lemonade Soda

  • 6 cups water
  • 1 cup honey
  • 1 cup lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup fresh whey

Special Equipment


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