Wow! You've got to try these old fashioned Fizz recipes. Fizzes are made from citric-acid syrups like lemon, pineapple, and so on, but usually with lime juice, and they're served while effervescing.

The unique "fizz" effect is gained by injecting or pouring the carbonated water in a series of quick dashes (amounts), or by the addition of a little bit of bicarbonate of soda (baking soda) and shaking. There's no doubt about it, fizzes are unique AND delicious!

Sometimes the old time soda fountain operator added an egg to the standard soft drink mixture to lend richness to the beverage and to hold the effervescence longer. If the white of an egg is added and the beverage is shaken, it becomes a "Silver Fizz." If an egg yolk is used and the drink is shaken, it becomes a "Golden Fizz." Enjoy an old time fizzy beverage today!
