It’s Christmas Season which means shopping, baking (well- for most people, certainly not me), and presents! Christmas came early for me (and a lucky reader) when Bonne O sent me two of their carbonation systems to add some sparkle to my holiday drinks.

One for me and one for you!

I think you truly put out your desires into the universe and they come back to you eventually. I noticed this year that on my long hikes, I crave Sprite so bad. I even Googled potential reasons for this craving and craving carbonated beverages could be a sign of dehydration. I decided I would start bringing sparkling water on hikes and then- Voila! Bonne O comes along!

Bonne O, is a Canadian made sparkling beverage system meant to allow you to sparkle everything (water, fruit, herbs, tea, wine, cocktails, etc.) with an environmentally conscious, zero solid waste sparkling system and no CO2 tank. It uses carbonation tablets in the system to carbonate your drinks.

Bonne O is less about “make your own soda” and more about “make your own healthy, soda alternative.”

Sprite Alternative

When I saw an alternative Sprite recipe that I had to try out!

The recipe did call for a teaspoon of sugar for some sweetness, but I didn’t add it and I found it to be delicious. Even Ryan gave it a thumbs up.

Detox Green Tea

I didn’t have much need of a detox with the detox green tea, but it just sounded plain tasty! This would be a great drink to help a Christmas party hangover.


This is on my list to try out for the holidays!! Sparkling Sangria– YUMMERS!

The only downside I noticed is that the drinks lose their carbonation quicker than a store bought sparkling water. Plan to drink it as soon as you carbonate it to enjoy the bubbliest drink possible.

You can check our Bonne O’s website and their recipe blog.


I will be giving one lucky reader their own Bonne O system- just in time for Christmas! And because it’s the crazy busy season all you have to do to enter is leave a comment below!

I will announce/contact the winner on Friday, December 16 and get it in the mail December 19.

Thank you to Bonne O for sending me a system to try out and one for a giveaway!

    I LOVE sparkling beverages. I buy sparkling water by the caseload at Costco so this would be a lifesaver.

    I’m obsessed with cold fizzy drinks too! I need one of these because I’m going through cases of Dasani way too quickly.. haha. I’ve recently converted the BF to sparkling water instead of soda which is a major win!

    I love that it’s environmentally conscious and made in Canada! And that homemade Sprite (sans sugar) sounds delicious ☺.
