Quite some time ago, I quit drinking soda. It was a New Year resolution about 4-5 years ago and probably one of the hardest things that I have done in a long time.
You don’t realize the craving you get for certain things until you cut them out of your life.
To this day I still crave soda every once in awhile, and I do have the occasional (few and far between) glass but I have come to a realization that it’s not so much the flavor of the soda I miss so much… but the carbonation that it has instead.
So I have begun buying sparkling waters as a replacement. Unfortunately, that can get pricey and some of the sparkling waters out there have added stuff that make them not much better for you than drinking a soda.
So it defeats the entire purpose.
Recently, I had the chance to try out the all new SodaStream Power Automatic Sparkling Water Maker and I have to say it was love at first fizz.
The SodaStream Power is specifically a sparkling water maker and you have the control and choice of how much fizz and bubbles you want! Which makes it much easier to help you break the habit of drinking soda and switching to more water instead.
It is also super simple to use with just the touch of a button after snapping the included bottle into place. Bonus that it matches all my other appliances, with it’s black and silver sleek design (it comes in white, too).
I’ve been using my SodaStream Power for some time now and literally make 3-4 bottles of sparkling water everyday…. but with the holidays coming up, I wanted to see if I could make some fun cocktails with the sparkling water.
I figured a spritzer would be the perfect thing!
For this beautiful red wine spritzer, I wanted to try something a little different than a traditional sangria or holiday cocktail. I used the SodaStream berry mix flavor and mixed it with my favorite red wine for something a little lighter and more refreshing that just a regular glass of red wine.
This cocktail would definitely make the perfect drink for any of your holiday celebrations or parties that might be coming up – I know I’ll be making it for mine!
