A device for dispensing soda water.
As early as 1790, the concept of an "aerosol" was introduced in France with self-pressurized carbonated beverages, but the modern syphon was created in 1829, when two Frenchmen patented a hollow corkscrew which could be inserted into a soda bottle and by use of a valve allowed a portion of the contents to be dispensed while maintaining the pressure on the inside of the bottle and hence preventing the remaining soda going flat.
Fill a mixing-glass half-full fine ice, three dashes orange bitters, one dash Peyschaud bitters, a piece lemon-peel, one jigger Tom gin. Mix, strain into cocktail-glass; add a squirt of siphon seltzer.
