Never had Orangina, let alone heard of it. However the recipe sounds tasty.

Approximately how much corn syrup and sugar did you use?

I don't recall, but most the time when I'm making soda I used 4 to 6 cups of sugar per 5 gallons. Some like it sweeter, I don't.

Thanks. I figured it was "standard soda sweetness" but wanted to make sure not to overdo it right off the start and ruin the recipe. I usually make my rootbeers less sweet than commercial.

This sounds like an awesome recipe! You should put it in your drop down... if that is an option.

Thanks - was looking for a starting point for exactly this.

My goal is to brew a 5g batch of it for summer...I may try to use freshly squeezed OJ with a tad of ascorbic acid to tart it up, given that 5g's of tangerine juice would require a second mortgage.

I don't have the equipment to force carbonate. Does anyone have suggestions about how to make this with yeast and bottling? I'm new to this so as much detail would be appreciated. My wife loves Orangina so this would help support the costs of a new hobby.

Perfect. The vanilla gave it a "cream" flavor which was a pleasant surprise
How much corn syrup and sugar are you adding?

Here is a recipe I found, making it in a mason jar. I do not get credit for it, Jessica posted the article on http://www.deliciousobsessions.com. I am sure this would be easy to duplicate and force carbonated. Looks like a lot of salt though. She is fermenting a lot of food in her articles. Hmmm. Beer food?



Orangina
Based on Sally Fallon’s recipe in Nourishing Traditions, pg. 587

6 organic oranges, juiced (see this post for an awesome little juicer)

1 tsp. sea salt

1/4 cup whey

1/2 tsp. orange extract

1 1/2 cups filtered water

Juice the oranges (this will yield approx. 2 cups) and pour the juice in a quart mason jar. Add the sea salt, whey, orange extract, and water. Cover and shake well. Leave the jar at room temperature for 8-10 days and then transfer to cold storage.

I checked mine after day 5 and it smelled like orange juice. I tasted mine after day 10 and it didn’t have the banana flavor that I was expecting, but it was still pleasant — a little salty and sour, but rather refreshing. I’d most likely drink this with a meal or after a workout. I think as a post-workout drink, it would be great. The sea salt would help rehydrate you and it would quench your thirst. I will definitely make this again.
