They other day I saw a giveaway for an Italian Soda Maker and I was immediately smitten. It was for the Penguin by SodaStream. With this soda maker, you add a glass bottle, some flat water, and a CO2 cartridge and voila – fizzy water.
I have been making syrups lately (like amaretto caramel and blackberry cordial) and I also see blueberry infused vodka and limoncello in my very near future. While I love making soda with these delightful syrups, I find the whole process of soda so wasteful – cans and bottles to recycle, and lots of flat soda poured down the sink.
I can definitely see myself loving a soda maker, but I do wonder how well they work and how economical they are. I’ve been hunting for the more traditional soda siphon or seltzer bottles as well but so far they are hard to find.
Does anyone out there have one? How do you like it and where can I get one?
