If you’re a fan of sparkling water, and sparkling holiday cocktails, SodaStream is one amazing machine you need in your kitchen! With the push of a button, you can have bottomless fresh sparkling water at your fingertips. You’ll love how convenient it is for everyday sparkling water, and holiday parties, plus how much money you’ll be saving long term, and not to mention it’s environmentally friendly. It checks every box.
The SodaStream Fizzi is my favourite model because of its seek and low-profile look which will easily match any modern kitchen decor. This machine is simple to use and I love how you can control the amount of carbonation. The possibilities are endless when it comes to flavours and beverage options using your SodaStream.
With the holidays just around the corner, what better way to make use of your SodaStream than to serve bubbly cocktails at your holiday party?!
Here’s a simple and festive holiday cocktail recipe that will please your guest and can be made with or without alcohol; both equally delicious!
Recipe: Sparkling strawberry candy cane cocktail
Makes 4 servings
- 1 cup of strawberry slices
- ½ cup of mint leaves
- 4 cups of sparkling water
- 3 candy canes crushed
- 1 tablespoon of honey (optional)
- 4 oz of Vodka (optional)
- Small pan
Combine strawberries, mint and honey (optional) in a small saucepan. Heat slowly over medium-low heat until strawberries turn into a puree, about 10 minutes. Remove from stove and let cool for 5 minutes.
Add puree mixture into your blender with vodka (optional) and candy canes. Pulse until smooth. I like using the Black and Decker Blender because it has 5 speeds including pulse and ice crush functions, which makes food prep quick and easy. It’s an all-around great blender to have in your kitchen to make smoothies, cocktails, shakes, salsas, soups and more.
Set your Strawberry mixture aside and next make soda water using the SodaStream Fizzi Carbonating Machine.
Pour evenly into glasses then add 1-2 tablespoon of the strawberry mixture and stir slowly with a spoon.
Add ice if desired and garnish with mint leaves and/or candy canes.
Serve this holiday cocktail immediately and enjoy.
Cheers to a wonderful holiday season!
