Summer is just around the corner so that means beating the heat with a constant supply of delicious, refreshing beverages. Making your own bubbly drinks is fun if you’ve got the right equipment and ingredients.
Now, if you were a kid in the 70s and 80s you very well might remember the SodaStream Drinks Maker craze. SodaStream was a hit with the whole family because it allowed you to turn water into carbonated water in your very own kitchen.
Fast forward to 2014, and SodaStream is seeing a revival. There’s no wonder why! One gas cylinder can make up to 40 litres of soda water and you can recreate almost any drink with SodaStream’s awesome range of flavoured syrups mixers that contain no high-fructose corn syrup. Then there’s the eco factor: SodaStream’s carbonating bottles are reusable, saving the environment from thousands of bottles and cans and pollution. Also, the Drinks Makers come in a range of different colours and styles, from fun and retro, to sleek and modern.
And is there any better feeling than sipping on your own homemade bubbles knowing that you’re doing the planet a favour? The only question remaining now is which SodaStream to choose, but guess what? We’ve got an answer for that as well.
To help you get your summer started, here are some of our favourite soda recipes. Feel free to adjust the ingredients to your liking!
