Would a root beer float by any other composition taste as sweet?
Weather is finally warming up in our part of the woods, and if we try really hard on some sunny afternoons, we can almost taste the lazy summer days in our not-too-distant future. Color us premature, but we at Ms. Fizz are ready to get the season of flip-flops and shorts started by experimenting with new takes on the traditional ice cream float.
According to history (now more commonly referred to as Wikipedia), the ice cream soda float was invented by a Robert Green in 1874. According to Green’s own account, he was operating a soda fountain during the sesquicentennial celebration in Philadelphia , and wanted to create a concoction to attract customers away from another vendor who had a fancier, bigger soda fountain. After some experimenting, he combined ice cream and soda…

Let’s talk about one of the most iconic “adult” fizzy drinks out there – the gin and tonic, or the G&T. As the days get longer, and (finally) warmer, you may be starting to think about the carbonated concoctions you can whip up with your SodaStream to beat the heat.

Our Tonic Sodamix allows the home mixologist to take their cocktailing skills to the next level. Since you make it fresh with tap water you never have to worry about lugging bottles home or the tonic going flat at the crucial…

It takes a bold kitchen maestro to select the red SodaStream machine for his or her home, be it a Fountain Jet, Genesis or a Crystal model. It’s an audacious choice, nay, a gutsy statement that we’d like to appreciate in full here at Ms. Fizz.
After all, there are only so many things in the kitchen that can come in the same fiery hue. So we’re curious sanguine SodaStream owners, how does your machine blend in with your kitchen landscape? Or perhaps it doesn’t and stands out among the grey and stainless steel wasteland as a beacon of fizzy goodness?
According to color psychologists of repute, red is the color of energy, power, determination as well as passion, desire and love. Maybe picking the red machine is an extension of a vibrant cooking meister’s individuality. So whether it’s an aesthetic or personality choice,…

At SodaStream we often partner with upcoming and established personalities and organizations in the food and beverage business. This can range from upstart soda entrepreneurs, to bartenders, to casual home chefs to actual restaurants. The main qualities we look for are creativity, great taste and a passionate fervor for fizz.
One place that has all these attributes in spades, is Manhattan restaurant Elsewhere, owned by Brian Keyser (New Yorkers will recognize him from Casellula Cheese & Wine Café his delicious small plates and wine café in Hells Kitchen). In addition to seasonal treats like lavender-rosemary popcorn and spicy pork sausage meatballs, Elsewhere’s menu features farm-driven cocktails and fresh house made sodas and mixers. House made sodas sounded like a match made in bubble-heaven to us, so when they reached out to us to use our home carbonation system to…
