This New Machine Puts Fizzy Cocktails at Your Fingertips

Two words: carbonated cocktails. SodaStream is introducing a new machine that will add fizz to any liquid and make your spirits sparkle.
SodaStream MIX

If cocktails are delicious and fizzy drinks are delicious, then it stands to reason that fizzy cocktails are delicious. That may be the thinking behind the recent enthusiasm for carbonated cocktails and a new wave in home carbonation systems that render effervescent any beverage, including those of the alcoholic variety.

Perlage offers a superfancy (and pricey) professional cocktail bottling system, targeted at the hospitality industry, and a less expensive system and kit for consumers to use in the home. And now SodaStream is introducing a version of its popular seltzer maker designed to “carbonate any and all liquids, from pure fruit juices to alcoholic beverages.” (Apparently people have been employing their soda makers for this off-label use for a while now anyway.)

The new SodaStream MIX, its sleek look the work of renowned designer Yves Behar, is set to debut this month at Milan Design Week 2015. Aimed at bartending pros and “sophisticated” consumers and expected to be available this summer, it will feature a color digital display panel and Bluetooth connectivity and can be controlled remotely via a smartphone app.

Sounds like a real gas.
