It wouldn’t be out of line to say I courted SodaStream over the past {12?} months. A long time user and big timer lover of SodaStream, it would have been out of the ordinary to see me without a SS bottle in hand. I dragged them everywhere. One bright shiny day it turned out, SodaStream loved me back. Love, might be a strong word. But I’m sure they’ll come around. But I don’t care. I love them, we had one when I was a kid and I’ve loved it ever since. I give the packs as gifts all the time. Ask my brother, who doesn’t really drink soft drink anyway. Ha. My Dad, was WAY happier with his.  
After speaking with the representative and accepting an offer of a give away set for the blog, I pitched a cocktail post. After all, during my 12 months courting them I’d seen a number of blogs featuring SodaStream and most {if not ALL} of them had a tutorial on how to use it. Me, I know how to fizz my loveliness, and I am assuming you too can follow the de’structions on the bottle. Let me know if not, I’ll hook you up with the inside tips… 
So here we go, the how to guide to a SodaStream Summer Cocktail party. 
Our flavour selections! Mmmm, yummy.
The best part has to be that because most of the flavours make up to 48 litres, it’s virtually impossible to run out at a party. We’ve all been to thooooose parties where the mixers run out and it kills the party. Or thee wait for Domino’s to deliver the replacement mixers just takes too long. Oh what, just me!? Awkward. We as long as there was cold water {or a tap, let’s face it} we had mixers. Winning! 
For a full range of flavours go here. I’m placing an order for a pile of sugar free one’s before the festive season is upon us. But overall all bar the Kids range {What the HECK SodaStream, MORE sugar in the kids ones, are you mad!? It could be a fruit thing, I’ll let you know} contain less than 5g per 100g. Which in a maintenance quit sugar plan would be allowable. And compared to most soft drinks this is all kinds of AWESOME. Some contain UP TO 40g/100g. Eeek. 
So here they are, our masterpieces. And the few that we made that we’re as pretty or as interesting but were cool anyway. Let’s face it, it’s pretty hard to accurately document a cocktail party at which you are bar tender AND participant AND head document’er. No really, you try it.
