SodaStream Launches Cocktail Competiton

3 December 2012
SHAKE IT UP WITH SODASTREAM

Enter to win a SodaStream Crystal and Cocktail Party!

If the thought of an icy cold, sparkling summer cocktail makes you fizz with excitement – this is the competition for you! SodaStream is looking for a new deliciously bubbly cocktail concoction, and is calling on Kiwis to get creative and mix up a SodaStream inspired cocktail recipe.

The most mouth-watering SodaStream cocktails – either alcoholic or nonalcoholic – will win a stunning limited edition SodaStream Swarovski Crystal machine (one of only two in New Zealand) complete with glass carafe, and a SodaStream cocktail party worth $1000 – perfect for a summer night celebration. There are also fantastic prizes on offer for seven lucky runners up.

Even though you need no excuse to mix up heavenly cocktails over the Christmas and New Year holiday – why not be rewarded for your mixing prowess?

With such a huge range of SodaStream syrups to choose from – Pink Grapefruit, Vanilla Cola, Summer Lemon and Ginger Beer to name a few – creating imaginative cocktails shouldn’t stir you. Plus, a SodaStream machine makes sparkling water from plain tap water with the push of a button so plain soda can feature as part of your cocktail too.

Throw a stylish cocktail party, impress your girlfriends with pretty fizzy treats before a night out or make yourself a refreshing cocktail to enjoy poolside this summer – and remember to send us your unique mix afterwards!

Once you’ve nailed your fizzy SodaStream cocktail, enter your recipe via the SodaStream NZ website: www.sodastream.co.nz/cocktail Terms and conditions apply. Closing date for entries is 14 January 2013.
