Carbonated Cocktails Still A Hot Trend
Fizzy & Cool – that’s the way we like it!
Adding a little fizz to a drink can make it more dynamic and appealing. Offering carbonated cocktails is the hottest trend in restaurants and bars all over North-America, reminiscent of the golden age of the soda fountains. What’s old is new again! Modern and cool looking carbonating system devices have appeared on the market and made popular carbonated beverages once again.
The concept of carbonation dates back to the nineteenth century. The vintage syphon bottle was created in 1829, when two Frenchmen patented a device that basically added CO2 to a liquid in a container to dispense a fizzy beverage. The soda syphon bottles were popular in the 1920s and 1930s but the destruction of most manufacture plants during WWII led to a decline in their popularity.
What’s old is new! Modern looking design and easy to use devices have made carbonated beverages popular again. The ISI cannister systems have a vintage look. The ISI system add effervescence to your favourite cocktails. It is available on line and the price varies from $57 to $75. The coolest gadget on the market is the Perlini system. The equipment comes in a James Bond style silver breifcase. The bottle functions like a shaker but the shaker is a pressure vessel that is pressurized with carbon dioxide. Arrive at a home party with your cool silver briefcase and you’ll be the most popular person, guaranteed! It was introduced to the Canadian market last year. It is not cheap though, the Perlini system costs $200.
