Mr. Fizz Homemade Seltzer
I am always trying to serve food that my grandmother would recognize. Which is why I splurged when I stumbled across this stainless steel Mr. Fizz Rechargeable Seltzer Bottle at Bridge Kitchenware in New York City.
To make homemade seltzer, you fill the stainless steel container up with water. Load a CO2 cartridge and turn the charger holder until it pierces the cartridge. The piercing pin will release the CO2 from the charger into the canister. Then you shake up the bottle and let it sit in the fridge to get cold. When the water is cold you dispense soda by pressing on the lever.
It makes old fashioned seltzer which has small bubbles. And Mr. Fizz even has recipes to make your own soda. I like the retro look of the stainless steel bottle in my fridge and being able to offer sparkling water to everyone. My kids like having soda.
