A French Soda taste like liquid creamsicles – and that’s according to Bon Appétit, and we would conquer.
Soda has been around longer than most people think: the method of infusing water with carbon dioxide was invented in 1767 by Joseph Priestly.
The first modern soda-pop was Dr Pepper, invented by Charles Aderton in 1885.
What Is A French Soda?
It is the combination of fizzy water, flavored simple syrup, and a splash of half-and-half over ice.
What Is Fizzy Water?
It is carbonated water that has been infused with carbon dioxide gas under pressure.
This produces a bubbly drink that’s also known as sparkling water, club soda, soda water, seltzer water, and fizzy water.
As a side note, hard seltzers and carbonated water drinks which include sparkling, seltzer, fizzy and mineral waters are all the rage right now.
What Is A Kombucha?
Kombucha is a fermented tea, made by combining tea with sugar, bacteria and yeast.
During the fermentation process, beneficial bacteria, acetic acid , a small amount of alcohol (<1%) and carbon dioxide gases are formed. The carbon dioxide gas is what makes the kombucha tea naturally fizzy.
The good bacteria eat the sugar and their by-product is natural carbon dioxide.
Juice, spices, fruit or other flavorings are often added.
Kombucha is thought to have originated in Asia during the Chinese Tsin dynasty in 212 B.C.
