How do you add flavours?

Want to elevate your sparkle? Check out the guide below to learn how to use our sparkling drink mixes.


Always fizz water before adding any flavour.

The guide above contains instructions for adding flavour:

Sparkle a bottle of fresh, cold water with your Sparkling Water Maker and select your favourite sparkling drink mix. We offer Classic syrups, Diet syrups, Fruit Drops, Organic Soda Press, and Fruits syrups.

To add sparkling drink syrups:
  • Use the indicated lines on the cap of the flavour bottle to choose a regular or light sweetness level.
  • Tilt the carbonating bottle at an angle and pour the flavour into your sparkling water.
  • Close the bottle with the fizz-preserving cap and shake gently to mix.
  • Enjoy your bubbles!

To add Soda Press sparkling drink mixes:

  1. Add 2 tbsp (30 mL) of the Soda Press syrup to about a 2/3 cup (170 mL) of sparkling water. You can adjust the amount of syrup you add according to your taste.
  2. Enjoy your bubbles!

To add Fruit Drops:

  1. Take approximately half a teaspoon of your chosen flavour to use with one liter of sparkling or still water.
  2. Tilt the carbonating bottle at an angle and add the fruit drops.
  3. Enjoy your bubbles!

While we do not have any flavours that are sweetened with only sugar, all of our regular flavours (non-diet) are partially sweetened with sugar. This combination of sugar and sweeteners allows us to create a product that is both tasty and lower in calories.

Do you have unsweetened, all-natural flavours?

Yes! Our Fruit Drops are all-natural, unsweetened flavour essences ideal for making lightly flavoured sparkling water. Or try using fresh lemons, limes, oranges or berries to flavour your drink after carbonating. Sophisticated, healthy and quite tasty! Pinkies up.

Can I recarbonate a drink that has gone flat and can I carbonate drinks other than water?

Did you know that the hermetic seal on the caps of our carbonating bottles keeps your sparkling water or flavoured sparkling water from going flat as quickly as ordinary store-bought beverages? If you ever need to recarbonate your plain sparkling water, you can. Just make sure that the water reaches the fill line on the carbonating bottle. If you've already prepared a drink with flavour, you cannot recarbonate.

Only water should be carbonated in the SodaStream Sparkling Water Maker. You risk damaging your Sparkling Water Maker, not to mention making a big fizzy mess! The money-back guarantee and the warranty are both invalidated if you carbonate any liquid other than water in your Sparkling Water Maker. Stick with plain, cold water and adding any one of our fantastic flavours AFTER the water has been carbonated!


Always fizz water before adding flavour

After opening, our Classic, Diet/Zero and Waters syrups should be stored in a cool dry place. The Soda Press Organic flavours and Fruit Drops should be stored in the refrigerator after opening. For more information, check out the label on the flavour bottle. Enjoy elevating your sparkle!

Can I mix flavours, and are there any recipes using your sparkling drink mixes?

Yes, you absolutely can. Our flavours are great by themselves or mixed with our other delicious flavours. Have some fun with your bubbles and check out our recipes for ideas!
