Carbonated water, club soda, soda water, or sparkling water  is water that is carbonated and made efervesen by the addition of carbon dioxide gas under pressure. Soda water gets its name from the sodium salt it contains says 'salty' compounds, adding different qualities to a number of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.

Soda water is also a raw material for long drinks and cocktails. Soda water can also be directly drunk.

In 1767, Joseph Priestley of England invented the method of incorporating carbon dioxide into the water while hanging a bowl of water over a keg of beer at a brewery in Leeds, England.

The air that envelopes the fermented beer which it calls the fixed water is known to kill the mice hanging there. Priestley later learned that carbonated water had a good taste. The water was served to his friends as a refreshing drink.

In 1772, Priestley published a paper entitled "Impregnating Water with Fixed Air" containing an explanation of the method of dripping "oil of vitriol" (sulfuric acid) onto lime to produce carbon dioxide gas, and mixing the gas into a bowl of water.
