Over the summer while the kids and I were out of town, my husband had lots of free time on his hands. He refinished a table, organized closets, and other helpful bits of business around the house. But, his most special achievement may just be a little discovery he made in the kitchen. Never one to follow the rules, he experimented in the kitchen and put WINE in the SodaStream. Oh, yes he did. And the result is glorious.
We usually have a good supply of red wine on hand, but I do believe warm weather calls for a chilled white. With this kitchen hack you can turn any bottle of white into a delicious sparkling wine any old time you'd like. It's perfect for entertaining, too, because you can please differing tastes with only one bottle. Serve some glasses straight from the bottle and add a little fizz to pour bubbly for others.
Making your sparkling wine couldn't be simpler because the SodaStream does all the work. Fill the reusable carbonated bottle to the line. Add as much fizz as you'd like. The wine definitely reacts differently than water, so we have learned to let it sit for a few minutes before removing the bottle from the SodaStream machine. Remove bottle from the SodaStream, pour and enjoy!
We've been using one of our smaller carbonating bottles (the .5 Liter size) to make a small batch of sparkling wine at a time. The wine will keep the carbonation throughout the day in the bottle, but we've found it's best to enjoy it the same day you make it.
Shop! We love our SodaStream and think it's a great investment in y0ur kitchen. (We've been using ours for over four years!) The SodaStream Jet Starter Kit is currently only $60 on Amazon.
