Festive Mocktails for Kids:
Deck The Halls- Christmas Mocktail

A refreshing, fizzy festive treat for kids. Fill a tall glass with ice. Top with equal parts Sodastream Apple, and Sodastream Clear Cranberry Rasperry. Garnish with an orange slice and a string of redcurrants for a Christmas feel.

Three Cheers Punch- New Years mocktail

A fruity mix of juicy flavours to welcome the New Year in style.

This delicious drink can be made in a punch bowl, with plenty of chopped fruit to garnish and add even more flavour. 1/2 part lime juice; 1 part orange juice; 2 parts Sodastream; Mango Passionfuit; Plenty of ice and chopped apples, oranges, etc. Ladle the mix from the punch bowl into tea-cups, so the kids can cut a dash with this sophisticated looking New Year treat.

If you're looking for something even more impressive, 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.

Bryan Pietersen said: “We were really excited at the prospect of working with Sodastream – the drinksmakers are the perfect way to create fun festive drinks and we’ve come up with a cocktail like people have never tasted before. It’s the most Christmassy cocktail out there!”
