I recently got my hands on a Bonne O sparkling beverage system, and I’ve been a bit of a madwoman sparkling ALL OF THE THINGS ever since. You legitimately toss whatever your heart desires into the bottle, push a button, and bam – infused sparkling beverage. I’ve attempted everything from lemon slices and water as I wake, to elaborate iced teas, to strawberry-basil lemonades, and then some. But my favourite concoction to date? This bruléed grapefruit and ginger sipper. Made with or without alcohol, pending your preference – or time of day – it’s just a little more elaborate than your typical drink, but oh my god the results are so worth the effort. It’s one of those beverages you’d whip up for a holiday party when your neighbor whose kids are always well groomed and whose husband is a total hunk and whose grass is ALWAYS manicured (what’s up with that?) is coming over for dinner, and you’re truly looking to impress.
ps – I will be giving away one of these bad boys next week, so stay tuned.
