beverages: March 2008 Archives

I have a confession: I am a sparkling water junkie.  Yup, I've been downing the stuff for years, plastic bottle after plastic bottle.  My preferred brand, Poland Spring, comes from Maine (not so far away) and I do recycle the bottles...  But this fizzy habit is really hard to justify -- and it's been nagging at me for years.

At long last, I've found a solution that makes both my brain and my taste buds happy: home made sparkling water made from Somerville's finest tap water (filtered through our fridge).  How?  With a counter-top device from Soda Club.

We just screw in one of the reusable 1-liter plastic bottles:
