If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve seen how much I’ve loved our SodaStream.  During my pregnancy I loved making myself different concoctions that felt both special and delicious.  It was like having my own personal little mocktail machine!

I’ve also been amazed at how much our guests have loved seeing how this machine works.  They’ll pick a flavor and we’ll ask if they want it low, medium or highly carbonated.  Ta da!  In fact, two people who have seen it at our house have bought machines of their own.

SO, if you have a soda or sparkling water lover on your Christmas gift list, you can actually save $50 on a SodaStream and flavor bundle on Amazon, which makes it $109.99.  And then they can make all the drinks they want – it’s the gift that keeps on giving!

I think the flavors are great on their own, but I wanted to share a little holiday mocktail recipe as well for any of you who are also looking for a little something extra to sip on.  And you can always add a little vodka to this if you aren’t in a mocktail season of life… I hear you and I see you.  #Respect.

Pomegranate Cider Spritz

1/2 cup apple cider

1/2 cup sparkling water (I used my SodaStream with the lime flavor)

1/4 cup pomegranate juice

1/2 a lime

Combine ingredients and garnish with pomegranate seeds, lime or a rosemary sprig.  Really you just want to add equal parts cider and sparkling water and a heavy splash of pomegranate juice.  My intent was to jazz up my garnishes up more… but we took these photos six days after Hudson was born, so this was my best (and it was delicious!).  I even had to keep everyone from drinking all of my cider so I could make my mocktail!  But a rosemary sprig would be so pretty!

  1. Kathleen, this comes at the perfect time – I was JUST looking at SodaStreams the other day on Amazon!!! I didn’t realize they just carbonate anything – I used to think it was literally making regular soda and not a healthier alternative in any way. I need one, and I need to gift one to my parents – SUCH a cool invention!

    1. Oh my gosh – you will LOVE this thing! I’m amazed at how perfectly carbonated it makes everything – and the fizz really keeps!
