Often called as seltzer or soda water which is sparkling water kept under pressure. It is perfect choice if you are thirsty. Joseph Priestley was the first to mix carbon dioxide with water artificially in 1767. Low-cost industrial production of carbonated water is credited to Ányos Jedlik in Hungary and his invention to sip up soda water from the bottom of the siphon through a pipe in order to keep more carbon dioxide in the soda. Hungarians like to prepare various types of drinks with soda water, e.g. syrups (made out of fruit concentrate and sugar) or wine.
It's a mixture of wine and soda water. Depending on the ratio of wine and soda water there are different types of fröccs drinks. Lately some mixed alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks are often called as fröccs as well.
On October 5, 1842 András Fáy invited Vörösmarty and some other friends to his estate for grape harvest. Ányos Jedlik was one of them who besides being a great scientist in electricity happened to be the Hungarian inventor of soda water production in industrial scale as well. In order to soothe the strength of the wine, in addition to inventing how to make soda water he needed to design a specific bottle that could spritz the water. Jedlik brought the world's first siphon bottle with him and made the very first spritzer of all times on the Fáy-estate leaving the host and guests in shock .The drink was named as 'spritzer' after its German name. Vörösmarty didn't like the name, though, so instead he invented the Hungarian word 'fröccs' for the drink. The poet mentioned the drink of wine mixed with water in his later poem 'Fóti dal' (Song from Fót): "Peals of the wine are rising to the top".
