Hmm, soonish, I'll be working on a 5 gallon tonic recipe. I'll report back.

At the homebrew shop I used to work at, we constantly had soda on tap for the customers. Here's one of my favorite recipes:

1 bottle Zatarans rootbeer
3.4-4.5#'s of sugar (depending on how sweet you want it)
.5# Maltodextrine
.5# Lactose

Add all to a keg with hot water, shake to dissolve solids, carbonate at 30 psi for a week and serve.

Great. I harvested some cherries from our back yard and i'm going to try and make some soda out of them this week.
I'll report on how it turns out.

There's actually a soda recipe database in the recipes section. There's not too much there, but does include both syrups and fermented versions of soda. They're really the same thing, just minor conversion. I think the main thing is that we don't have many from scratch recipes that we've really put out there. They're either too complex or too simple. ArtofDrink.com lists a lemon syrup that's: juice 8 lemons, 10oz sugar, some gum arabic and lemon oil. Basically, lemon juice and sugar. Same thing for cherry syrup, and it's easier to buy cherry concentrate, or take a can of frozen juice concentrate from the freezer section.

For example, the cherries... I'd either say, crush them and macerate them in the fridge with sugar, to extract a syrup, or pit them and put them in vodka to make a cherry extract, or add sugar to make a liquor and make that a soda. It'll probably need some lemon or lime to perk it up in either situation.

I'm playing around with rootbeer as my last one tasted more like a cream soda, and I want to add something to spice it up a bit and that had around 8 ingredients in varying quantities including sarsaparilla, liquorish root, wintergreen, chicory, black pepper, star anise, coriander.

The cherry soda i made was pretty amazing stuff. I took one liter of water and boiled it with a few handfulls of cherries. The liquid got a very strong red color and alot of taste. I didn't add much sugar because I like the natural tart and bitter taste of cherries, but the sugar amount depends alot on how sweet your cherries are. Mine were quite sweet.
