Soda gembira is a popular sweet drink found in restaurants all over Indonesia. This pink, fizzy and milky drink is made using cherryade and condensed milk, but we’ve tweaked it a bit to make it less sweet..


  • 3 tsp condensed milk
  • 200 ml chilled cherryade
  • 100 ml chilled soda water

Soda Gembira ingredients


  1. Pour the condensed milk into a glass.
  2. When ready to drink, pour the cherryade and soda water. Serve immediately while it’s still fizzy.


  • You can add in flavoured syrup as well, or skip the soda water altogether and use 100% cherryade, resulting in a sweeter, punchier taste.
