Holiday Party Idea: Eggnog Soda Bar

One of my favorite things about the holidays is figuring out what new party I will throw! This year we will be hosting a few parties: gingerbread house decorating for the kids, holiday brunch, and a holiday open house. I am already planning out the themes, decor, and menu for each. One thing that I like to do for parties is to set up a self-serve beverage station. It’s a lot of fun for the guests and allows me to relax instead of having to serve everyone a drink. We’ve done everything from a cocktail station with a signature drink, a hot cocoa bar complete with all the toppings and a homemade soda bar that includes a variety of SodaStream soda flavors. This year we are putting a twist on the homemade soda bar by offering a holiday-inspired Eggnog Soda Bar.

For our festive Eggnog Soda Bar we made root beer, cola, and ginger ale. And of course, we had plenty of egg nog.

Plus, a few seasonal toppings. Whipped cream (which I wrapped in a piece of cardstock and added a cute chalkboard label to make it look nicer), cinnamon, nutmeg, and candy canes. You could even include sprinkles, cherries, shaved chocolate, and more.

A cute chalkboard sign lets guests know how to make their festive drink. Make sure to tell your guests to pour their soda in before the eggnog or else it will fizz too much.

The result? Delicious! These kind of taste like a root beer float with a twist!

Setting the Eggnog Soda Bar up was very easy with the SodaStream Play! We have been using a SodaStream for years now and love it. It’s a much healthier alternative to store-bought soda. It has less sugar and little-to-no caffeine (depending on the flavor). Over the years, Sodastream has also added a huge variety of soda flavors and they even offer natural sodas made with pure cane sugar. Both the kids and adults love it!

Another cool feature? The SodaStream Play now has removable skins in a variety of colors, patterns, and even designs to match your personality, home decor or party theme. I chose red for the holidays! Putting the skin is effortless as it is vinyl and is easy to lift up and reposition if you don’t get it lined up correctly. Right now you can get a code for a FREE skin when you purchase a SodaStream Play.
