Default Carbonating

So my wife and I decided to make a Strawberry-Kiwi wine, but only 8 liters of it... However, she has now decided that she wants it 'sparkling'.

My question is:

I have a Tap-A-Draft system, and a 2.5 Gallon keg that will be free for this procedure. Is it possible to force carbonate using either one, or am I better to force carb at room temp in the keg at 30 Psi for a week?

Thanks for any and all replies.

Either will work. I have only a passing familiarity with the Tap a draft system. Is it as portable (more portable?) As a little Corny keg?

It is a little easier to carry, but mainly the principal as a corny keg. Just clear and brown as opposed to dark and metal. And it fits on the shelf of my fridge.
