Unofficial SodaStream Flavors
The beauty of the SodaStream machine is that you can use many different kinds of flavoring to create the perfect carbonated beverage. Each one has its own charms.
One of the cheapest ways is to use snow cone syrup. There are many different flavors available–including fruity flavors and soda flavors–and when you buy in bulk, it’s actually cheaper than syrup from the SodaStream store. There’s a good chance you’ll even be able to find a retailer not too far from home so you can avoid paying so much for shipping.
You can also find some liquid flavorings, such as cherry and lemon, in most grocery stores. These tend to be weaker in flavor than the other options mentioned so far and not quite as sweet, but depending on what you like they may be perfect.
Making Your Own Syrup
One of the best things about the SodaStream machine is that it’s easy to make your own syrup so you can create your own flavors. There are a few different ways to do this, depending on what flavor you’re going for and how much time and effort you’re willing to put in to get it just right.
In fact, you don’t even really need to make your own syrup. You can use real fruit juice instead to create a healthier alternative to soda.
The easiest way to make your own syrup is by using a dissolvable drink mix, but these are often difficult to find and don’t usually have such a wide range of flavor options. Still, if you want to make something close to your average SodaStream mix, this might just be your best option.
Making your own syrup from scratch is a little more difficult but gives you complete control over the level of sweetness and the exact flavor of your soda. Start experimenting with recipes. Once you’ve done it a few times, you’ll be able to start experimenting and creating your own recipes.
