Carbonating Booze With a SodaStream

As Supercompressor recently discovered, a SodaStream is not only good for making fancy soft drinks, it can create some seriously refreshing spirits. Testing out whiskey, rum, gin, vodka, tequila and white wine in the seltzer-making machine provided some very interesting results. While carbon dioxide improved the palatability of whiskey, vodka and gin, it flat-out did not work on “heavier” alcohols like rum or tequila. Unsurprisingly, white wine basically turned into a sort of DIY-champagne.
