SodaStream MakerPosted: March 24, 2012
For DT’s birthday last November, I bought him a SodaStream Maker….have you seen these?
It’s a pretty slick system, particularly in our house where tonic water and Coke Zero are enjoyed regularly.
It’s been fabulous to not haul a bunch of tonic bottles (or Coke Zero cans) home from the grocery store, unload, and store them. Plus empty bottles aren’t filling our recycling and being wasted. Win-win all around!
Here’s how it works:
Fill the SS liter bottle with tap water.
There’s a CO2 canister that provides the fizz.
Screw the bottle into the soda maker.
Push down on the top to carbonate – hold for 10 seconds or so.
Pour a capful of the flavor mix into the water and gently shake.
Pour over ice and enjoy!
DT’s SodaStream V&T (Vodka and tonic):
We also have these other flavors in the pantry, plus a few samples that came with the maker. I love, love the diet pink grapefruit – so tart and refreshing.
A couple of weeks ago DT ordered a supply of tonic from SodaStream’s website. I.E. 20 bottles were delivered to our doorstep in a rather large and quite heavy box.
It was like Christmas morning at our house, folks! For DT, the kids, and cats alike (I just took photos).
Holy guacamole, TONIC!
That should be a year’s supply, if all goes according to plan. Errm, stream.
Speaking of Christmas….boxes. Give the gift of boxes! Who needs to spend money on expensive toys and gadgets when a simple cardboard box will provide hours of entertainment to children and pets??
RJ was in that box, lickety-split:
Then Milo ambled on over and chased him out….
RJ back in his cave:
Henry smooshed himself in….
….but this was as far as Sam could get.
(The box stayed intact for another two hours or so.)
Hope you’ve enjoyed this glorious March Saturday….goodnight!
