Sparkling water is a bit of a staple in our house. I don’t do soft drinks, so during the day I drink filtered water but at night, if I’m not having a cocktail or glass of wine I like to switch things up with a glass of sparkling water. It adds a lovely little fizz that dances on your tongue.
A few years ago, sick of lugging bottles of sparkling water home from the supermarket, I invested in a Sodastream. Once the domain of fizzy soft drinks, not a day goes by where I don’t make a bottle of sparkling water. So when Sodastream asked me to partner with them create some delicious cocktails and mocktails I was more than happy to oblige.
First up I’m sharing an Amaretto Sour cocktail.
If you’ve never had one, you’re in for a treat. An Amaretto Sour is the perfect aperitif (a cocktail that is usually served to stimulate the appetite before a meal) – a tart and refreshing combination of lemon juice, almond liqueur, sweetener, and ice.
While classic Amaretto Sours don’t call for soda water, I like to add a little sparkling water to mine as well otherwise I find it a bit too strong. Especially if I’m having one before dinner!

I upgraded to the Sodastream Power, from my old Sodastream. Not only does the new Power model look beautiful, it is so much easier to use. No more screwing in the bottles, they now simply clip in. And it is so much quieter too!
