We are not heavy soda drinkers in our family (kids are not allowed to have it) however my husband and I love our diet cola with lime and often will “treat” ourselves with a 2-Liter bottle every once in awhile. So I was excited to try out the SodaStream Fountain Jet System Starter Kit for my Holiday Gift Guide and see about making our own soda out of regular tap water!
The process was pretty simple: Fill the bottle with tap water, secure in the system and add the amount of carbonation you would like from low to max amounts. After your water has been carbonated you add the optional flavor in an amount to your tastes and you have instant soda or seltzer! I have to say my favorite is probably the diet cola and the lemon lime flavors. Sometimes I just make the carbonated water and add the juice from a lime to give me that natural seltzer flavoring without all the calories or artificial sweetener from the syrup.
