Carbonated water (also known as club soda, soda water, sparkling water, seltzer water, or fizzy water) is water into which carbon dioxide gas under pressure has been dissolved, a process that causes the water to become effervescent.
Carbonated water is the defining ingredient of carbonated soft drinks. The process of dissolving carbon dioxide in water is called carbonation.
Famous quotes containing the word water:
“Not yet old enough for a man, nor young enough for a boy; as a squash is before tis a peascod, or a codling when tis almost an apple. Tis with him in standing water between boy and man.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
