Marge's Homemade Pepsi

Marge’s Homemade Pepsi

Oh Marge, always thinking of your children and always being frugal. But really what kid in their right mind would bring Marge’s Homemade to a school dance? I would guess that thick, homemade beverages are not really something today’s youth are into. Is Marge so out of touch…no, it’s the children who are wrong.


  • 1 cup of Sugar
  • 2 liters Water
  • 1/8 teaspoon Champagne Yeast
  • 1/2 tablespoon Cola Extract



Note: The rarely mentioned “El Boyfriendo” did all the actual brewing here since this is his area of expertise.

Sterilize everything before you begin, in this case your milk jug. It should be noted that the recipe that comes with the Cola Extract recommends using a proper 2L bottle. I would strong recommend using those bottles and not the milk jug.

Combine all ingredients in the jug and mix until well combined. Set aside in a warm, dark area for approximately 3-4 days or until the jug expands so much that you’re a little worried about it.


So yes, after a few days the jug started to get very distended, so I figured this was as good a time as ever to start drinking. It tasted like Cola and was also carbonated, success! And it turns out that making Marge’s Homemade Pepsi from my home IS actually quite affordable:

Sugar = $0.20
Champagne Yeast = $ 0.20
Cola Extract = $0.60
2 liters water = free (I mean not really, but I have no idea how to quantify this)
Total = $1.00

So yes, while it a little thick, the price was right!

Cromulence: 5 DMY out of 10

I stumbled upon this page, now I am excited to give this a try!! I’ve had a craving for some Pepsi Fire here lately so I’ve decided I make everything else at home it seems so why not try to make my own cinnamon flavored soda? 🙂 Pepsi refuses to make it again or reply to emails about it. Maybe I should email them every day. Hmmmm I think I’m onto something here LOL! Until then, I can’t wait to try this recipe.


the real question is, did you buy your sugar from the door to door sugar man?


Just for that, I’m going to kidnap your loved ones and raise them as coptic Christian. And you’re also not getting a corner piece.


You seem stressed, can I offer you a piece of this *other* casserole I made?


I’ll trade you for 300 cans of budget club mushroom soup. If you have some noodles and tuna fish, you can make a casserole that’s small on price but big on flavor. (Hashish not included.)


I’m not sure if I should trust this trade or not! What are your opinions on dressing like a Lebanese prostitute?
