Small update:

mixing syrups and adding extra shots.
1.5 shots cola: actually tastes like Jolt Cola... Haven't had this in years..
Cola 1 shot + 1/4 shot lemon lime: This is interesting. just off from CocaCola... I might have better results if I had just lime...
2X lemon lime: ...way too sweet... perhaps if I go the opposite direction with this one.

Using syrups for other purposes:
Root beer in particular has made for an interesting ice cream topping.
Lemon-lime taken as a straight shot (I don't recommend this if you are unprepared) is a tangy, neutral taste, I may explore the possibility of using this as a base for a barbecue sauce.

Obstacles:
Seems Cola Syrup is also sold as medicine. This has gotten in my way so many times in searches. I can't help but wonder if they are similar.

Other:
I can't believe this! There's a Pepsi-Cola bottling plant 1-city away! I may have to pay them a visit!

Finally tried some of the seltzer flavors...

This...is an acquired taste... if you don't like straight carbonated water, then you likely won't like these to begin with. I would start with the pre-canned variants before attempting to flavor your own with a sodastream. the ratio is finicky, and unfortunately, I could not give you an accurate ratio, as everyone's taste is different.

Grapefruit.
Not bad, a bitter-citrus flavor... good with Vodka.

Lime.
This is pretty good, definitely a sour flavor.
Might experiment further with this... maybe mix it with cola.

Lemon.
Ugh... there isn't even any sugar in this... why does it remind me of froot loops!? ...blegh...

Raspberry.
A mild, fruity flavor. almost sweet smelling, I like this one.

Cucumber.
....I really don't know what I was expecting with this one...
If it weren't a drink, I would suggest ranch dressing... not bad...just disappointing...Maybe if I mixed it with tomato juice...
