Cocktails with Sodastream Play

Today saw the start of London Cocktail Week, where top bars in London offer £4 cocktails to wristband wearers, as well as there being pop-ups, parties and tastings. It sounds like an excellent idea, and I wonder if it will catch on at the 2 local pubs in my Staffordshire village.

To celebrate this event Sodastream sent me one of their new Sodastream Play drinksmakers to try out, along with a few new 'free' flavours.  Sodastream Free are naturally sweetened using fructose, and are free from artificial sweeteners, flavours, colours and preservatives.  The 3 flavours available are Fresh Bitter Lemon, Apple-Peach and Passion-Mango. I used 2 of the flavours in these delicious cocktails.

Lemon Fizz cocktail
