Everything is better with bubbles. Classic cocktails like the Negroni can be lifted into the stratosphere with a bit of carbonation. Devices like the Perlini System and the new iSi Twist 'n Sparkle (seen here in use by Marcel Vigneron on Hanging with Harris) make carbonated cocktails and other beverages simple. Whether you are a pro behind the bar or just want to impress your friends at home, adding bubbles is a fun and unique way to add texture and flavor to old favorites.
