ALWAYS GOOD. ALWAYS NEW.

As successful as Vodka Soda is, we actually know very little about its origin. No bar is known as its place of birth, and no bartender as its inventor. No matter, since the Vodka Soda has lost almost none of its popularity over the past 20 years. Quite the opposite. Its simplicity has made it a brightly shining star in an ever-more complex world of drinks. But it is possible to be a bit more creative with the garnish. Besides the classic twist of lime, other kinds of fruits and vegetables can be used depending on the season – whether mint, apple, or red beet: creativity is the catchword. And an invitation for you to experiment at the same time, cheers!

ONLY SODA WATER IS SODA WATER!

As tempting as it might be to substitute mineral water or carbonated water from a Soda Stream for real soda water, don’t do it! Soda water not only has more carbonic acid than customary carbonated water, it also contains important compounds. For instance, sodium bicarbonate, the active ingredient in baking soda, which ensures the balanced taste of your Mojito or Gin Fizz. A Vodka Soda is also unthinkable without soda water. Why? When you mix soda water with acidic beverages, it reacts and forms the fine CO2 perlage. That means that soda water not only adds carbonic acid to the drink. It also produces even more of it. This is the only way to give your drinks just the right amount of carbonation. Cheers!
