Once you get your home bar outfitted with a basic set of barware tools and equipment, its fun to start adding some gadgets. If you like mojitos, collins, rickeys or any cocktails with fizz (crackle or pop) in their name then you’ll want a seltzer machine.
The Sodastream Fountain Jet Soda Maker Starter Kit lets you make your own sparkling water / seltzer anytime you need to stock your home bar for mixing drinks or want to enjoy a soda on its own. Available in several colors, the soda water starter kit comes complete with a Soda Stream maker, one carbonator capable of making 60 liters of soda and one BPA-free plastic bottle.
An awesome aqua appliance which actually aerates bubbles of carbonated gas into the water creating effervescent fizz. This great gaseous gadget generates gallons of ‘green’ gulps and requires no batteries or electricity.
The Soda Stream machine is powered by the pressurized carbonation canister which comes with the seltzer water starter kit. This CO2 cartridge is pre-filled with carbon dioxide under pressure and can probably be exchanged at many locations near your home depending on where you live, much like returning propane tanks for gas grills, or can be swapped through the mail via online ordering.
The process is very efficient and eco-friendly by eliminating all the bottles and cans that come with purchasing sparkling waters and sodas in containers at the store. The only bottle required comes with the soda fountain kit and has a hermetic seal. Closing the cap tightly allows your home made soda water to stay fizzy for over a week when kept in your refrigerator.
Over 25 regular, diet, energy and caffeine-free flavors of syrup are available as well. Sold separately, the seltzer maker syrups allow you to create a variety of soda pops with environmental effervescence from ordinary tap water. You can even make your own tonic water using the quinine mixture. Creating carbonated cocktails is convenient because you can make your own sparkling water at home in seconds anytime a drink recipe calls for a splash.
