Soda/pop recipes

Does anyone have a recipe that uses soda? (like 7-up, Coke, Mountain Dew, Sunkist, etc.) We have a lot of pop left over from New Year's Eve...

you can freeze them into cubes, then use them in drinks of the same soda later on. that way, the watery ice doesn't dilute the soda.

when i was a kid, i loved it when my mom took leftover flat rootbeer or 7up, and froze them into icicle pops.

Here's another:

Soda Pop Pears

I remember a thread that talked about stuff like this, but I can't remember what got us chatting about it in the first place!

A really easy CrockPot recipe my mom always made was Coke Chicken. Equal parts CoCola and ketchup (any brand of either ingredient will do) to cover assorted chicken pieces in the slow cooker. I prefer boneless breasts, but she used cheaper whole chickens cut into the standard pieces. Turn it on and leave it. It's really hard to overcook it. Eventually the meat will just fall apart. You can add other spices as well, but the ketchup and Cocola make a pretty tasty sauce by itself.

Bubbas 2 cents

not really a recipie, but soda works great in marinades....I am a marinading foo' and sometimes I just use it as the liquid. Many o time I might have all the dry ingredients handy, yet dont have a suitable liquid, coffee works well as does beer, and wine.
I love cooking with beer and wine, sometimes I even put it in the food
Think of it as one layer of flavor and build on it.

try something like a can of lemon lime with chicken
cola with beef
some red pop (has to be faygo dere) adds nice color and a sweet cotton candy like taste

then just add whatever else u normally would....just try to balance it out a bit ..... it's not rocket surgery

or just save it for your next function
if it's in 2 liter bottles I highly recomend one of thos pumpy whoo haas...they works great!

I like the idea of the coke chicken phinz
but I also like erics idea.... anyone have a recipe for jungle juice?

Ice-cream soda! My kids(and I) love this a lot especially in the summer, though we have been having a few since we too have some soda left from the festive season. You scoop vanilla icecream into a glass and pour over cola or sprite(never tried the orange based sodas like fanta. My favorite is vanilla coca cola poured into the vanilla ice cream.Serve with a straw and a spoon.

I have a waffle mix that calls for seltzer. Maybe your favorite soda could be used instead.
