    As far as I know, "sparkling water" is just carbonated water. Am I wrong?

    Related question: I always thought club soda was just a more modern version of seltzer water. But now, I am seeing both in the stores. What, if anything, is the difference?

    I really like OGD and soda.

    I think the difference is that sparkling water has naturally occurring carbonation and soda water has the carbonation added.

    In regard to soda vs. seltzer: club soda has more sodium than seltzer as well as biocarbonate of soda, which Doug mentioned.

    Duh! I just looked at the bottle, which labels its ingredients. Why didn't I think about that before? Anyway, it is labeled as "sodium free" and my particular bottle contains carbonated water and potassium bicarbonate. I guess it is to make it taste like mineral water.

    I prefer Perrier, which is naturally carbonated mineral water but, man, is it expensive! I used to buy a U.S. sourced brand called Quibel, but I can no longer find it. That was 15 years or so ago.

    Thanks for the help.

    Another old fashioned tonight...I don't know why these have been tasting so good lately (it is helping me drink my living bottle though, which doesn't taste especially good on its own).

    Gin and tonic that I made into sorbet. It worked OK. Tastes good but you have to go light on the gin or it won't freeze.

    Great manhattan last night. Rittenhouse with Dolin, and used some Fee brothers black walnut bitters. Really added new depth and flavor.

    Ritt & Dolin were made for each other. I picked up some Miracle Mile 'Forbidden' bitters -- loving them. Also picked up some Fee Brothers Barrel Aged bitters, but haven't cracked into them yet. Will keep an eye out for the Black Walnut bitters.

    Yeah, the barrel aged bitters are fantastic. The black walnut is good, but doesnt always work, depending on the whiskey. What's the story on the Forbidden bitters?
