SodaStream’s Flame-Boyant Christmas Cocktail


SodaStream’s Flame-Boyant Christmas Cocktail

Posted on 20 December 2010 by Chris Ford

For a unique and tantalising twist to your Christmas celebration, SodaStream has joined forces with celebrity mixologist Bryan Pietersen to create the Ultimate Christmas Cocktail.

The iconic brand and leading mixologist teamed up to create this distinctive tasting limited edition cocktail – which goes on sale at Purl bar in London this December.

Bryan’s team are known for their Heston Blumenthal approach to cocktail-making and this unique cocktail sees SodaStream mix two of their most popular flavours – Apple and Ginger Ale – with the ultimate in festive ingredients – including cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, to create a lip-smacking, tongue-tingling cocktail.

For the flamboyant finishing touch the cocktail is served in a Christmas Bauble along with a flaming mince pie surrounded by a misty cloud of dry ice! There will be no other drink to have this December.

To sample this delicious concoction head down to Purl bar – 50/54 Blandford Street, Marylebone, London, W1U 8JX Or if you followed my advice last month and bought yourself a Soda Stream you can make the cocktail in the comfort of your own home by mixing the following ingredients in your drinks maker :

200ml. Mineral Water

200ml Apple Juice

50ml SodaStream Apple Syrup
100ml Gin 50ml Winter Syrup 10ml Sodastream Ginger Ale

SodaStream drinksmakers are available from selected Sainsbury, Maplin, John Lewis, Comet, Argos, Robert Dyas, Lakeland and selected Asda stores, including Asda Living. The drinks makers cost from £49.99 and flavours from £2.99. For more information visit www.SodaStream.co.uk or look them up on Twitter @sodastreamuk.

Get Busy with the Fizzy..

As a child I always envied it from afar, I saw the flavours in the supermarket, the boy over the road had one, lots of the other kids at school had one but not for me. I always told myself though when I grow up I’m buying myself a Soda Stream!

Now some would argue I’m yet to grow up but today this 29year old finally realised the dream and got my very own Soda Stream machine and of course a tonne of flavours to try!

If you don’t remember or have no idea what Soda Stream is or does then let me explain.

The Soda Stream system enables you to carbonate water and to flavour carbonated beverages at home as an alternative to purchasing pre-packed bottles or cans.  So for a £3.99 bottle of flavour you can make ten litres of fizzy drinks which obviously is saving a fortune on regular shop bought drinks but also masses of fun!

And I I think that’s the real hidden selling point of the Soda Stream, the kids will really love being involved in the process and I have to admit this big kid loved it too!

There are four different models of machine to choose from,  the Stream, Genesis, Pure and finally the Penguin which is the top of the line machine complete with glass mixing bottle.  I went for the cheapest machine in range  the Stream which is £49.00.

For more information on the range of machines and flavours to choose from head over to www.sodastream.co.uk
