When you think back to your younger years, I will guarantee one thing you will remember is the SodaStream!
Whether you had one or really really wanted one. They were one of the most sought after products in the 90’s (my era).
We were lucky enough to be sent the gorgeous Red Night Spirit to review.
And boy was I excited by this! Not only getting to relive, some, of my youth, but we can now make cocktails with it. Mmmmm how I love a cocktail!
Back to the SodaStream….
I couldn’t believe how compact the machine is. It is lovely and slimline and will fit in anyone’s kitchen.
I remember it being big and chunky when I was younger, and I don’t remember them looking as good.
When making drinks, it was so easy. Most of the time I let the Mini Man and Little Lady help make our choice of fizz for the day.
Cherry is the favourite here.
I am not too keen on cherryade, but this one wasn’t as sickly as the ones on sale in the shops.
We all enjoyed a glass of that in the sunshine
The SodaStream is so simple to use, I have been getting my Mini Man and Little Lady to do most the work!
Full your bottle up to the line.
Attach to the drinks maker and carbonate, the mini’s favourite part.
Add syrup and shake up.
Bob’s your uncle!
SodaStream have also brought out new Cocktail syrups, *drools.
There are 3 syrups available – Mojito, Margarita and Cosmopolitan.
These are all on my shopping list! As mentioned earlier, keep your eyes peeled for a future blog post on these.
One of my favourite aspects of the SodaStream is that it helps me with my budget.
Each bottle of syrup makes 12 litres of juice and the syrup is only £3.49. Compare this to the average of roughly £1.50 for 2 litres of fizzy in the shops and you know you’re onto a winner with this.
We also tried out the new My Water, flavoured essence.
I liked this, as I love flavoured water. My only problem was I had to use more than the bottle stated. This could just be my taste, as I like quite a good flavour instead of a subtle touch.
All in all, the Night Spirit went down well in our house.
The Mini’s love making their own juice, I am loving that we aren’t spending a lot on juice anymore and that I can make cocktails 😉 and the Mr loved his Cream Soda. His words – not as sickly as previous ones he has tried.
At £69.99, the machine isn’t too expensive and the pennies you will save by switching to this from bottled fizz is fab!
Have a closer look at the Night Spirit here you won’t regret it!
We were sent the Night Spirit for the purpose of this review.
