SodaStream Source Soda Maker, $99.99, Target
I used to think this was a silly extravagance until I saw how much soda water I would go through when hosting a party. One big party-sized batch of mojitoes and you’re looking at several bottles of soda water (which I will admit, I am terrified to open as many have exploded on me!). I love cocktails that have fizz, but I don’t want the sweetness or the sugar of pop. This makes the SodaStream a bar necessity.
Sets include a CO2 tank, syrup samplers and a soda making bottle.
Syrups range in price from $4.99 to $9.99 and have so many flavors to choose from (including ones that are sugar free, diet, etc.). Additional bottles run anywhere from $11 to $17. One of the great things, too, is you can buy them anywhere!
The carbonated drink maker comes in all different colors and different levels of technology (some of their models get really technical, which is great for the tech-lover!). Check out all the SodaStream options here!
