Your primary focus should be the tiles of Honey highlighted in red in the image below. When you clear the Honey and Licorice Swirl at the locations highlighted in red, Bottles will start to appear. When you raise the soda level high enough, Bottles will stop appearing at the top location and will start appearing at the locations highlighted in blue in the image blow. Those four locations should be your focus throughout the level.
With the soda level near the top of the playing field, match candies as high on the playing field as possible, doing this will shift the largest amount of candies, hopefully matching some automatically and create new opportunities to create special candies.
Take your time and pause after every move to check whether you can create special candies.
