Lyd Explains: Seltzer Water

I am one of the many people obsessed with seltzer water! #noshame In this post I want to talk about the history of seltzer water, how it's made and why it's become so popular.

Carbonated water is known by many names over the world: soda water, sparkling water and seltzer or seltzer water.

Seltzer water was discovered in the mid 1700's but was not mass produced until 1781. Seltzer water is water with dissolved carbon dioxide gas slowly escaping as bubbles.

Seltzer is made by artificially dissolving carbon dioxide into the water using pressure or made naturally from geological processes.

Many say the increase in popularity of seltzer is because of a more health conscious public, concerned with sugar, artificial sweeteners and other unpopular ingredients found in soda (pop). I was never a soda-drinker growing up but I loved seltzer water. I still drink seltzer to force myself to drink enough water everyday.

I buy a selection of different brands of seltzer for different functions. I use the store brand for everyday drinking and get fancy with the plethora of flavored brands for parties and visitors.

I have seen a few gadgets to make your own seltzer water at home. I haven't been tempted to purchase one because I would have to go to the store to get the water to make it into seltzer water at home anyways. I love kitchen appliances but to me it's not wort the cost,work and counter space.

Thanks for reading! I hope you enjoyed this post about seltzer water! I am sure there are tons of different brands all over the world. Comment below with your favorite!

Recipe: Coquito - Spiced Coconut Drink

Fall is here!! So it's time to make Coquito - this spiced coconut-based drink and flavorful and great hot or cold.  Components: Blender to mix ingredients - the cream of coconut and condensed milk  Containers for storage:  - airtight containers - sterilize before use   - pick a container size that gives you a cup or 2 per container so you can enjoy some without opening up all of your coquito   - I love the 16oz seal top beer bottles for this! I was able to fill 3.5 with the recipe below. I like to make mine at least a month before I want to enjoy it. I store it in the back of my fridge in airtight bottles for safe keeping. The spices get a chance to settle in infuse over a few weeks, this makes such a difference in the flavor!  Coquito Recipe 12 oz can evaporated milk 13.5 oz can coconut milk 15 oz can Coco Lopez cream of coconut 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk 3/4 tbsp cinnamon 1/2 tspn nutmeg 1/4 tspn cloves 1 tbsp vanilla 1 vanilla bean - seeds only 3/4 cup vanilla bourbon 1
