The Sims 4: Eco Lifestyle was a fun and interesting addition to the game. It added some fun new skills and aspirations for you to play around with.
The skill we’re talking about today is the juice fizzing skill, a 5 level skill that is gained through created your own delicious beverages. The best part about this is that you can sell these beverages at a shop or a marketplace table.
“Sims with this skill have a natural curiosity for the art of the fizz. Whether it’s a hobby or a side hustle, experimentation is key. These sims can be found trying different ingredients and processes to hone their craft.”
How to Start Juice Fizzing
In order to get your sim to start gaining the juice fizzing skill you will need to have a juice fizzing machine. If you update the Evergreen Harbour community spaces to a Maker Space, you’ll be able to use one there, however, it’s usually easier to just own one of your own.
Once you have access to the machine you’ll need to go and load ingredients into the machine by clicking on it and choosing different fruits of vegetables that your sims have in their inventory. You can’t make different fizzy juices without different ingredients!
The more of a single ingredient you load, the more bottles of fizzy juice will come out at the product completion, giving you more to drink or more to sell.
Once your sim has loaded the ingredients you then need to go in and start the fizzing process. It will take a few hours for it to be completed, and once done there will be a blue light appearing on the outside of the machine.
When your sim collects it, you’ll be able to name your new juice anything you’d like which can make it feel like you have a fun juice fizzing business. Once finished the product will be in your sim’s inventory.
Juice Fizzing Skill Levels
There are five levels of the juice fizzing skill in The Sims 4: Eco Lifestyle and as you gain the skill your sim will get different unlocks and abilities.
Juice Fizzing Level 1
A sim who just starts gaining the juice fizzing skill will have the ability to start fizzing on the juice fizzing, including loading ingredients.
Juice Fizzing Level 2
When your sim hits level 2 of the skill they are going to be able to start experimenting with herbs, flowers, and soybeans in the juice fizzing machine.
Juice Fizzing Level 3
Once you’re at level 3 of the skill your sim unlocks the ability to create some seltzer instead of just juice! Exciting!
Juice Fizzing Level 4
At level 4 of the juice fizzing skill your sim can now send off their juice to Fizz Enthusiasts to be evaluated for money. In addition, they can now give fizzing tips to other sims.
Juice Fizzing Level 5
At level 5 your sim has now maxed out the juice fizzing skill, which is awesome, and they will be giving the affizzinado reward trait. They will also now have the ability to create grimbucha with a death flower.
Affizzinado Reward Trait
Interestingly, when your sim mazes out the juice fizzing skill they are going to be given a reward trait called affizzinado. This reward trait will help you in creating better products and feel better when drinking too much of their fizz.
“Affizzinados become focused while creating better products from the juice fizzer, as well as recovering from becoming overbucha’d faster.”
How to Cheat the Juice Fizzing Skill
Sometimes when playing The Sims 4 we don’t want to earn the skills, we want to just have them. To cheat the juice fizzing skill you first need to enable cheats by hitting ctrl + shift + c on your keyboard then type in testingcheats true and hitting enter.
Then you’ll want to type in stats.set_skill_level minor_juicefizzing X and fill the X with whatever level of the skill you’d like to have. If you want to have level 5 you’d enter stats.set_skill_level minor_juicefizzing 5 and you’ll get that.
Emotions and Juice Fizzing
Since The Sims 4 has such an emphasis on the emotions system (even though it’s boring) of course the juice fizzing skill has effects on emotions as well. Different types of juice can be made to give your sims different emotions in the game based on what you put in the machine. To make the effects stronger you can just drink more bottles of juice!

Special Fizz Types
There are a few weirder or more special kinds of juice fizz, three to be specific.
1. Honey Fizz
The first type of special fizz is possible if you have The Sims 4: Seasons and own one of the bee boxes. You can use the honey collected from bee boxes to make a special honey beverage.
2. Suspicious Fizz
The second type of special fizz isn’t so great, it’s suspicious fizz. This is created from ingredients that won’t be so great as a fizzy juice. If your sims drink enough of this drink they are going to start feeling not so great and may eventually start throwing up in the toilet. Be careful of the suspicious fizz!
The final type of special fizzy juice is the grimbucha which is made with the alluring death flower. When a sim drinks this they will get a +4 sad moodlet for a few hours and won’t be the happiest, so you could give it to others.
Getting Your Juice Evaluated
A sim who is at level 4 of the juice fizzing skill are actually able to send out their juice fizz beverages off to be evaluated where they can earn a bit of income. The description of this says that you should be confident when doing it if you want to do well and you can become confident by having a sim brush their teeth on a sink as the easiest way.
Once you have a confident sim and some juice fizz in their inventory you can click on your mailbox and click send fizzy product for evaluation and you can choose which one you’d wish to send.
After about two days your sims will get a notification telling you how the evaluation went. If it went okay, you’ll be given money for your juice fizz.
Juice fizzing can be a very, very repetitive skill in The Sims 4 but it can be a fun hobby for a sim to do at night or on weekends as a way to earn a bit of extra money. You could create an entire retail store where you sell these items if you have The Sims 4: Get to Work, which is a really fun way to play the game. Happy Playing!
