The holiday season brings a lot of parties to the calendar! For Christmas and New Year's there are often several of those parties that bubbly or sparkling drinks are offered, though they're often just for the adult crowd. This year we're letting the kids in on the fun with some Fizzy Party Drinks!
We were sent a new SodaStream Power Automatic Sparkling Water Maker and some SodaStream Sparkling Drink Mixes! I knew they would be perfect to liven up our drinks!
I need to confess: I'm not a water drinker, but I wish I was. I am so over the moon excited about being able to make my water into something I will actually drink. The SodaStream Power is really easy to set-up and it doesn't take up much room on the counter. Those are both huge pluses in my house!
Turning boring water into a fun fizzy drink is so simple!
- fresh or frozen fruit
- gummy bears
- SodaStream Sparkling Drink Mixes
- Fill SodaStream carbonating bottle to the line with cold water.
- Place in SodaStream Power.
- Press button to carbonate to your liking.
- Pour drink mix into carbonating bottle at an angle, close with cap, then mix with a gentle shake.
- Drop a few gummy bears or pieces of fruit into glass.
- Pour flavored sparkling water into glass.
We made up a few different combinations, but our favorites are Frozen Berry Punch and Gummy Apples.
To make our Fizzy Frozen Berry Punch, we used frozen strawberries and Waters | Fruits – Berry Mix from SodaStream.
For our Fizzy Gummy Apples, we tossed a couple of gummy bears in the bottom and then added our Sparkling Water that we mixed with Waters | Sparking Gourmet – Green Apple Cucumber. I think the Waters | Sparking Gourmet – Coriander Apple Blossom would be great with this one as well!
For a holiday party, set up a Fizzy Party Drinks bar!
Stocked with several varieties of SodaStream Sparkling Drink Mixes, fruit, gummy candies, some fun straws and you'll be set for whatever the kiddos want to make!
Did you notice our glittery glasses? Those are so easy to make and add an extra special amount of fun to a party!
The kids could actually help make these earlier in the night with different colored glitter and then use their glasses later in the evening for their fun fizzy drinks. We used plastic champagne flutes since they're for the kids.
I'm sure many people do, but we don't let the kids have soda yet. We push water and hope that the kids will drink it. I can already tell the difference the SodaStream Power is going to bring to our house! I love that I'm able to offer the kids a better-for-them option instead of just plain, boring water. These are fun and Charlie thinks it's soda. I've explained to him that the regular water is made fizzy and then if he wants to, we can add a little flavor to it. And of course, Owen wants whatever Big Brother has and I don't feel guilty at all for giving it to him!
And it's not just great for kids! The new SodaStream Waters are a great low calorie option for anyone that wants to give their sparkling water a little life! They're made with all natural sweeteners and colors.
