Soda water
Soda water So"da wat`er, n. 1. originally, a beverage consisting of a weak solution of sodium bicarbonate to which an acid (such as phosphoric acid) has been added to generate carbon dioxide and thus cause effervescence; the term now is also used as a synonym for {soda pop}. Soda water without flavoring is used as a beverage or as a component of a mixed beverage. It is typically bottled or canned under pressure so that the carbon dioxide and effervescence will be preserved until use. [PJC]

2. a beverage containing supersaturated carbon dioxide (carbonic acid) and thus effervescent. [PJC]

3. same as {soda pop}. [PJC]
