Fix the Pumps looks at the history of early soda fountains and expands on the techniques and recipes used by pharmacists and soda jerks to create these bubbling concoctions.
The book contains over 450 pre-prohibition soda recipes, many containing forgotten ingredients like Acid Phosphate, Lactart and aromatic elixir which were easily as creative and interesting as anything bartenders were making.
The “Soda Kit” combines a print copy of Fix the Pumps with two of the key ingredients used to make dozens of pre-prohibition soda drinks: Acid Phosphate and Lactart.
After reading through Fix the Pumps, you will most likely be curious as to what a Lactart or Phosphate tasted like, and why they were so popular for over 70 years. The Soda Kit will get you started while saving you some money.
Included: Fix the Pumps (print and ebook versions), Acid Phosphate (8 oz) and Lactart (8 oz).
