Let your kids toast in the New Year with some homemade GRAPE FIZZ, a fun non-alcoholic drink that is made with just three ingredients including grapes. A great soda style beverage you can make as an activity together with your kids to add some fizzle to activities such as a New Years Eve celebration or a family movie night. Drinking some GRAPE FIZZ would be an especially fun treat for an evening at home watching UP by Disney PIXAR. This dad blogger is planning on making up a batch with my kids to enjoy while streaming the movie on Disney+ this weekend.

Have you looked at the ingredients label on a soda bottle? Soda is full of artificial coloring, preservatives, and up to 50 grams of sugar! Kidstir provided this better-for-you-soda with just three ingredients—fruit juice, carbonated water, and a little sugar.


+2 cups seedless red grapes, washed
+2 cups sparkling water (plain carbonated water)
+Simple Syrup (optional, see recipe below)


1. First, pull the rinsed grapes off the stems. Place them into a blender.

2. A grown-up can help blend the grapes until they turn into juice.

3. Set a strainer over a measuring cup. Pour the juice into the strainer. Press it through the strainer by stirring with a spoon. You should now have about 1 cup of grape juice.

4. Fill a small pitcher with the sparkling water. Add the grape juice and stir well.

5. Taste the grape fizz. What do you think? If it's too tart, stir in 3 to 6 tablespoons of Simple Syrup to the pitcher. Pour into glasses.

 6. To make a sweetener for your grape fizz, a grown-up can heat 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of water in a saucepan. Bring it to a boil and stir. When the sugar has dissolved, remove it from the heat and let it cool. Add 1 tablespoon of syrup at a time until your drink tastes perfect to you!
