What Seltzer Water Should I Use?
We suggest using homemade sparkling water for the best results with your mocktail. This is because store-bought sparkling water may contain added sugar and preservatives, which can impact the flavor of your drink.
At home, you can use a soda machine to adjust the amount of carbonation as per your preference. Additionally, instead of buying seltzer water from stores, owning a machine can save you money in the long term by allowing you to refill and exchange the CO2 canisters used in most soda machines. This is also an eco-friendly alternative!
