DETAILED DIRECTIONS USING SUGAR
To Make 1 Quart of Syrup:

Mix in A Bottle
  • Put 20 ounces of water in a 1 quart, or larger, bottle. Room temperature or warm water will help the sugar dissolve more quickly.
  • Using a funnel, add 2 cups of sugar to the water. (or 1 1/4 pounds of sugar)
  • Put cap on tightly. Shake bottle until sugar dissolves. Kids love to help with this part.
  • Add 1 ounce of concentrate. Shake until mixed.
  • You now have 1 quart of ready to use syrup in your favorite flavor.
Mix in a Pan
  • Put 20 ounces of water in a 2 quart, or larger, pan. Youll need extra room for vigorous stirring. Use room temperature or warm water so the sugar dissolves more quickly.
  • Add 2 cups sugar to the water. (or 1 1/4 pounds of sugar)
  • Stir until sugar dissolves. Kids can help with this part.
  • Add 1 ounce of concentrate. Stir until mixed.
  • Using a funnel, add syrup to a plastic bottle for dispensing.
  • You now have 1 quart of ready to use syrup in your favorite flavor.

SUGAR FREE, LOW-CARB, SYRUP DIRECTIONS
To make 1 quart of syrup, substitute Equal, Splenda or other artificial sweetener, for the sugar (2 cups). No sugar means no carbs. Any artificial sweetener which you can substitute cup for cup for sugar will work with this recipe. Unfortunately, artificial sweetener is more expensive than sugar.
  • Fill your 1 quart bottle about half full with water.
  • Using a funnel, add the sweetener 1 cup at a time, shake to dissolve, and repeat until all the sweetener is dissolved in the water.
  • Add the concentrate and add enough water to equal 1 quart. Shake until mixed.

    Make A Soda: Mix 2 ounces of syrup and 10 ounces of carbonated water in a glass to make a 12 ounce soda. Adjust the syrup to suit your taste. Click here for recipes for other beverages.

    HOW TO MAKE SYRUP FROM CONCENTRATE USING STEVIA
    The following information is courtesy of Prairie Moon customer, Jeff Broughton. Thanks for the recipe and great information, Jeff.

    Make The Syrup:

    Before You Begin
    • Stevia in the Raw (bulk) produces the best flavor. Do not use stevia / erythritol mixtures as the erythritol tends to separate out of the solution after a very short time period. If you cannot get Stevia in the Raw (bulk), use the purest version of Stevia(Rebina) you can find and be prepared to open around 100 (+/-) of those little packets.
    • Use purified or filtered water, do not use unfiltered tap water.
    Utensils
    • 8-cup measuring cup
    • Small wire whisk (Stevia has a tendency to stick to side of cup, the whisk helps to scape it off and mix it completely)
    • Quart size bottle for storage (Check out our mixing bottles)
    Ingredients
    • 1 Bottle (4oz) Rio Concentrate
    • 1 Bag (9.7 oz) Stevia in the Raw
    • 12 oz hot water
    • 2 oz Madhava Agave Nectar Light*
      *This is optional. It is the easiest way to adjust the sweetness to suit one's taste. Agave has a low glycemic index and adding 0.15 oz (5 calories) per quart does not change the numbers that much. I like it with and without the agave. I started adding a little agave after experimenting with making chocolate syrup. I found that the chocolate syrup was best using both agave and stevia, so I tried a little bit of the agave in the cola syrup and liked the result.
    Directions
      1. Put stevia in a big measuring cup and whisk in hot water.
      2. Whisk in the Agave Nectar.
      3. Let cool (Whisk as needed if the stevia is not completely dissolved).
      4. Whisk in Rio Concentrate.
      5. Pour mixing bottle and store in refrigerator.

    Make The Soda:

    Recipe makes around 30 oz, which will yield syrup for around 15 quarts of soda.
    2 oz syrup + 30 oz seltzer = 1 quart of soda

    Utensils
    • 2 oz measuring cup with pour spout
    • 32 oz bottle (Check out our mixing bottles)
    Ingredients
    • 32 oz cold water or store bought carbonated water
    • 2 oz Homemade Syrup
    Directions
      1. Carbonate 32 oz of COLD water. (Not necessary if using store bought)
      2. Tilt bottle with opening over sink and slowly add the homemade cola syrup. (Tilting the bottle will prevent foam from running out the opening most of the time, the sink will catch it the rest of the time.)
      3. Quickly seal bottle and shake gently until combined.
      *DO NOT OPEN BOTTLE FOR AT LEAST 1/2 HOUR.

    HINTS
    • Use room temperature water so sugar dissolves more readily.
    • Use a funnel to add ingredients to the bottle.
    • Add water to the bottle first and sugar second to keep the sugar from clumping on the bottom of the bottle.
    • Dont add concentrate till the last step. This allows you to see that the sugar is all dissolved.
    • One ounce concentrate per quart of syrup is the industry standard. However, you can adjust the taste of your syrup by using a little more or a little less concentrate. For a stronger flavor try 1 1/2 ounces of concentrate per quart of syrup. For a lighter flavor try 1/2oz concentrate per quart. With concentrate you can make your syrup the way you like it.
    • You can use any clean plastic bottle with a tight screw on cap for mixing. Clean your empty soda or water bottles for use in mixing syrup. Or, you can purchase our mixing bottles which have graduated 1 ounce measurements, an easy grip neck and come with a tight fitting cap.
    • Syrup made with the standard recipe of 1 1/4 pounds of sugar per quart of water is about 70 calories and 18 grams carbohydrate per ounce.
    Cautions:Please use caution when mixing concentrate. Concentrate may stain skin and fabric.

    SHELF LIFE OF SYRUP & CONCENTRATE
  • Refrigeration is not necessary, but both concentrate and syrup will last longer if stored in a refrigerator.
  • You will get the longest shelf life if stored in a dark area like a kitchen cabinet or pantry.
  • Exposure to light promotes mold growth.
  • There is no expiration date on syrup or concentrate.
