Sockerdricka (Swedish for "sugar drink") is a soft drink from the 19th century. It is traditionally a fermented drink that contains ginger, but modern commercial versions consist of carbonated water, some sugar, and citric acid.

Ingredients[edit | edit source]

Procedure[edit | edit source]

  1. Boil the sugar, water, lemon and crushed ginger for 15 minutes.
  2. Strain the mixture and let it cool.
  3. Mix in the yeast and let the mixture ferment for 2 days.
  4. Put the drink in bottles, and add a raisin to each bottle.
  5. Cork the bottles, and let rest for 5 days. After 5 days the sockerdricka is ready for drinking.

Notes, tips, and variations[edit | edit source]

  • The recipe above has lots of yeast, and not much ginger. It would work well with just 10 g yeast. More ginger would be good (e.g. 100 g of fresh ginger for 20 litres).
