What is Iced Coffee Soda?
The great thing about making coffee soda is that it stays true to the coffee flavor; it’s not coffee-flavored soda, but real coffee incorporated into a soda-like drink.
Fresh brewed and chilled coffee is slightly sweetened to taste. Then carbonated club soda is added.
Iced Coffee Soda is a refreshing cold drink with fantastic pure coffee flavor. No artificial ingredients or fake sweet flavors.
Coffee soda is something I’ve been enjoying a lot recently.
It can be made with regular coffee or flavored coffee, as well as espresso too.
Here’s what’s in it:
- Prepared coffee
- Simple Syrup (homemade or store purchased)
- Club Soda or sparkling water

Pro Tips for Making Iced Coffee Soda
Making coffee soda is a cinch with the key being having the ingredients prepared and chilled beforehand.
I keep a Mason jar of prepared coffee chilling in the refrigerator along with Club Soda and simple syrup (recipe included).
With those things on hand, it is as easy as pouring it into the glass whenever the mood strikes or friends pop by.
It’s great for a coffee break at work too (since I have a home office, it’s really convenient!).
If you are a flavored coffee lover, make flavored coffee it use.
The flavor can also be changed up by making flavored simple syrups. They are easy to make and can be used in other drinks or cocktails too.
True coffee addicts can get an extra caffeine dose by making coffee ice cubes to use too!
Just pour coffee or espresso into an ice cube mold and freeze.
