  1. Cream soda syrup:
    2 cups cane sugar
    2 1/4 cups water
    Juice of half a lemon
    1 vanilla bean, split in half and seeded
  1. Ginger ale:
    1 cup water
    8 tablespoons cane sugar
    2 pieces ginger
    Juice of 1 lemon
  1. Popsicles:
    2 cups sparkling water
    50-60 gummy bears
    2 tablespoons homemade syrup
  1. Special equipment:
    Popsicle molds


  1. To make cream soda syrup: Place sugar and 1/4 cup of water in a medium saucepan set over medium-high heat. Cook until sugar is caramelized and just starting to brown. Slowly add in 2 cups of water, lemon juice, and vanilla bean and bring to a boil. Remove from heat right after it boils, and let stand until cool. Discard vanilla beans and transfer to an airtight container.
  2. To make ginger ale syrup: Bring water to a boil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Once it starts to boil, remove it from the heat and add sugar. Stir to dissolve. Peel ginger and grate using a microplane into the sugar water. Add lemon juice, and let stand until cool. Strain out any large pieces of ginger and store in an airtight container.
  3. To make popsicles: Fill popsicle molds 2/3 full with sparkling water and add 1/2 teaspoon of flavored syrup into each mold. Add 10-12 gummy bears into each mold until full. Top with popsicle sticks or lids and freeze for at least 4-5 hours or overnight.
  4. When ready to serve, remove the popsicles from the freezer and enjoy immediately.
