All you need is a simple siphon and a supply of cartridges for it. They use CO2 cartridges to carbonate plain water (properly known as “Seltzer”), or any clear beverage such as your apple juice, which you can carbonate directly for a sparkling apple juice, similar to sparkling cider. Siphons were known as “Seltzer bottles” and were a household staple in the 20’s-40’s. You can also add syrups such as those made by Torani to the carbonated water to make your own sodas.
