How To Build Your Own Carbonation Rig That Adds Bubbles to Anything
Look, Sodastreams are great for their convenience and ubiquity, but there are some drawbacks. For starters, you can only use them to carbonate water. On top of that, the cost of the replacement CO2 cartridges (which you need to keep yourself "in bubbles") is higher than it needs to be. We've explored other systems that let you carbonate cocktails, but they're prohibitively expensive and very inconvenient. We knew there had to be a better way.
Jeffrey Morgenthaler is here to show you that way.
It's Friday afternoon, you've made it through the long week, and it's time for Happy Hour, Gizmodo's weekly booze column. A cocktail shaker full of innovation, science, and alcohol. Bubble, bubble, toil and trouble.
If you're at all keyed into the modern drinks scene, then you already know who Jeffrey Morgenthaler is. He's a legendary bartender based in Portland, and he's widely acknowledged as one of the fathers of the craft cocktail movement. Today, he's going to show you how to build a rig that can carbonate anything you want, and do it on the cheap. Jeffrey, take it away.
