Have you heard of SodaStream?  Basically, it’s awesome!  It is a countertop “small appliance” that takes regular tap water and turns it into a sparkling water!  Accompanied with the tons of flavored syrups, you can have yourself a Cola, Orange, Lemonade and so much more…in sparkling fashion!  My kids love the Country Time Lemonade with added fizz!  While Fred loves the caffeine free cola and the diet cherry cola for his Rum & Diets after the kids are in bed!  I…well I just about love them all!

Here is mine.  She is a Source.  Her name is Sally and I love her! I shared this on Instagram when she joined our family :)  If you don’t know already I name small appliances and tools I love!  They are members of the family!

Things I love about Soda Stream:

  • 1 L bottle is the perfect size.  We can change our minds frequently and it doesn’t get wasted.
  • The bottles are amazing at keeping the fizz in.  So much better than regular soda bottles!  They seal really, really well!
  • I can adjust the carbonation level.  (We tend to like our beverages less carbonated and I can do that easily with the LED display on the front! However can make bubbly rich tonic when my dad comes over to go with his gin!)
  • Flavor options are endless!  My kids love the Kool-Aid flavors and the Crystal Light’s.  These below are just  FEW of the many flavors!  Peppermint Cranberry Drink2
  • I can find replacement CO2 Canisters and flavors pretty much anywhere!  Wal-Mart, Target, Bed Bath & Beyond and even my grocery store!
  • The unit is self contained.  No plugs or electricity needed so it’s perfect for picnics, tailgates, take outside by the pool or to move around my kitchen with ease.
  • It is SO NICE to pick up a compact flavored syrup bottle versus having to haul around 2 liter bottles of soda!  In the cart, out of the cart on the conveyer, bagged back into the cart, into your car, out of your car in your house, out of the bag into your pantry!  Sheesh!  And the small bottles store so much easier than large 2 liters do!

In honor of the approaching holiday I thought I’d share this easy Peppermint Cranberry Spritzer Cocktail Recipe!  It’s pepperminty, it’s refreshing and it’s fun!

I like to garnish with things that give an idea of what the drink is about!  So I used some floating cranberries!  (Put them in your glass first then the ice, then your drink)  You can also drop in a peppermint too!  (it might turn your drink pink but drink it fast enough and it won’t be a problem {wink})

    I love that you don’t have to plug it in! I could use it in the kitchen, move it down to the bar in the basement, take it with me to parties, etc. Also all the flavors!

  2. Colleen Boudreau

    I like the variety of flavors it has.

  3. Dana Esker

    I love that there are so many different flavors to choose from and it’s more eco friendly.

  4. i don’t drink much soda (or carbonated drinks in general) because the carbonation burns my mouth! with this i’d be able to adjust it to my tastes… awesome!

  5. JoeyfromSC

    I have ALWAYS wanted one of these! lol…I love the fact that it is way easier than lugging the 2 liters home & I just love the variety of syrups! THanks for the chance to win!

    Happy Holidays! Your spritzer looks awesome!

    Joey J.

  6. My husband and I have talked about getting one for quite some time. We both drink a lot of soda. Does the soda really taste like popular brands such as Coke or Pepsi? It would be so much more convenient if so.

  7. michelle smith

    I love that you can make so many different flavors. There’s one for any taste!

  8. Katie

    I like the fact that you can customize and invent new favors of soda. It will probably save money too.

  9. Nikolette B

    I have been dying to try this!! I love that there are reusable bottles and that there are so many flavors to try.

  10. Jensen

    What a fun giveaway! I have considered getting a soda stream for our home because of the amount of soda we go thru each week. I really wasn’t sure if the flavors would taste the same as our favorite sodas. It would be great fun to win one! Thank you for the opportunity.

  11. Courtnie

    Soda Stream can save me money!

  12. Ashley Outland

    I love all the flavor choices!!I would love to try the SodaStream out!

  13. Linda

    I also like the fact that it does not have to be plugged in. I mostly like the variety of flavors that one can have on hand at any one time. I have been wanting one for a long time. Hugs………….

  14. Christy Hillard

    I love that there is very little waste of resources….no cans or big pop bottles to recycle.

  15. jane d

    I have wanted a Soda Stream ever since I first heard of them years ago! Pick me! Pick me!

  16. Madonna

    I love that they have such a flavor variety. I can keep the bottles on hand and have something for everyone. I have tried to win one of these for about 6 yrs now. :)

  17. I had never heard of one of these! Lol Where have I been?!
    It looks like alot of fun.

    I like that Soda Stream allows you to control or know what ingredients you are drinking.

  19. Elizabeth G.

    What I like the most about SodaStream is that you can make your own soda and control the amount of sweetener that goes in it.

  20. I love the whole idea of doing everything at home, not lugging and storing a bunch of soft drinks.

  21. Terri Hughes

    Love the giveaway. Thanks!

  22. Rebecca Brewer

    Love the choice of flavors and I can make something sparkly without any of the other stuff.

  23. KaySue

    I like that the carbonating bottle is reusable and the variety of flavors that are available.

  24. K. Lawrence

    I have never tried this awesome little gadget before but I LOVE bubbles in all my drinks! I also love that it doesn’t need to be plugged in!

  25. Karen DeLozier

    I have always wanted to try this! I love the customization options available!

  26. i love mineral water and this is so awesome and more green

  27. emily r

    I love the variety of flavors!! I love that you don’t plug it in!! It is definitely more green than buying soda cans!

  28. Julianne Johnson

    I love that it can make “bubbly” water and the little kids think they are drinking pop!

  29. Elizabeth

    I love the variety of flavors! So much fun!!

  30. Jodi

    I love the versatility! Lemonade for the kids, little something for Mom and Dad! :)

  31. Mary

    I love the variety!

  32. This looks really fun! My kids love soda, but it would be nice to adjust how much sugar they are getting, or even just give them bubbly juice!

  33. Tami B

    I have been interested in the SodaStream for a while now, but just haven’t found anyone I know that has one. Fizzy fruit juices sound good to me.

  34. I’ve wanted to try out a Soda Stream forever! I recently gave up my diet soda addiction, and I’d love to make fizzy juice drinks to take the place of the soda! :)

  35. Mer

    I really like how customizable it is! With all the different flavors and the carbonation settings, you really can create your perfect soda.

  36. Jennifer Barr

    i love how it sounds so easy to use

  37. anthonia farfale

    The sodastream is great because it will allow me to create wonderful carbonated beverages for a fraction of the cost of the store-bought ones! And….making my own soda is a healthier option for my family and me. Thank you!

  38. I think this is just great! I regularly buy sodas and crystal light, etc. And with this, its your one-stop beverage station! I can just imagine the savings! It would much a much loved & frequently used addition to my kitchen!

  39. Helen B.

    I love that you can make so many different kinds of sodas. Thanks for the chance!!

  40. shari

    This would be so cool to encourage my teens to drink something so much healthier than regular soda!


    I like the fact that you can control the amount of carbonation you get!

  42. Natalie Yeoman

    I like that it has so many flavors and how easy it is to make the soda
