While browsing through my favorite blogs, I came upon Grapefruit and Thyme soda from Reclaiming Provencial. As it is many times with the web, that lead to another link, and another link, and some googling, and some more googling, and then I found SodaStream Source.
How could I have not known about this!!! This is totally something I would embrace with open arms. I love making my own liquid libations: Orange Liqueur, Dark Cherry Liqueur, Cranberry Liqueur, and Limoncello. Imagine making my own soda!!
Now, what is funny about this is that I don’t drink much soda. As a matter of fact the only time I have a soda is when I’m eating out and for whatever reason do not choose my usual sweet tea. But what I do drink is subtly flavored water. You know those bottles of water with a hint of cucumber or lemon, that are quite expensive when you figure that it’s really just water. So, what if I could make my own?!! I would definitely drink grapefruit thyme soda!
You can get several different models of SodaStream with prices ranging from $79 all the way up to $199. I chose the Source model, purely based on how it would look on my counter. I got the very attractive black model. It comes with a sample pack of soda flavors, a heavy duty bottle and a CO2 cartridge. You simple install the CO2 cartridge and you are good to go! You fill the water bottle up to the indicator line, snap it into place on the SodaStream and push down on the lever block to get the desired degree of carbonation. I use three short bursts.

I love it!! Totally love it.
I immediately went on Amazon and ordered:
I have already tried several recipes and will be posting a review of each book after I complete a few more.
This would make a lovely Christmas present to yourself!!
