Quench your thirst with healthy and refreshing DIY carbonated water.

SodaStream naturally flavoured punch recipe

Keeping yourself hydrated by drinking water during hot summer days is important, but plain water can get boring and bottled carbonated water is expensive. So how can you make water more fun and afforadable?

SodaStream Source Plastic Sparkling Water MakerEnter the SodaStream Source Plastic Sparkling Water Maker ($150, major retailers). Simply fill the reusable carbonating bottle with tap water, lock it into place and press down on the top of the water maker for the level of carbonation you want (light, medium or heavy) for a full litre of sparking H20! Since it’s powered by a CO2 canister, you can put it anywhere in your kitchen or even on your desk at work. One canister makes up to 60 litres of water.

When bubbles alone aren’t enough, spruce up your sparkling water by adding fruits like citrus or watermelon for flavour, herbs like mint or rosemary or other natural flavours like herbal teas to the mix.
