The acidic elixir that propelled the soda fountain drinks to new heights. Created as a neutral flavoured, shelf-stable mixture used to acidify drinks. Acid Phosphate adds a sparkle to drinks and helps carbonation when used with soda water.
Every order includes a FREE PDF copy of Fix the Pumps: The History of the American Soda Fountain (nominated for Best New Cocktail Book in 2011 at Tales of the Cocktail)
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.
