Because putting dry ice in a sealed bottle would effectively turn it into a bomb, you'll need to make a safety valve for the bottle.

What You'll Need

  • Safety valve
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 10 cups cold water
  • 1/2 oz. flavoring (such as root beer extract)
  • Dry ice

Step 1: Attach the Safety Valve

First, drill a hole in the bottle cap and fit the safety valve into the hole.

Step 2: Mix the Soda

Mix the water, sugar, and flavoring. Pour them into the bottle and add a few chunks of dry ice.

Step 3: Wait for Carbonation

Screw on the cap, wait about ten minutes for it to finish carbonating, and enjoy your homemade soda!
