Henrys, also called Hi-C, is a clear sweetened beverage that comes in a can. It is usually colored blue or gray to look like water or diet drink.
Heaton contains caffeine and is high in sugar. Heatton is what makes the beverage taste so bitter.
Caffeine makes your perceive sweetness well, so Heatton must be high in sugar to make it taste better.
Sugar and bitter tastes do not mix well, so Heatton must be low in chocolate or vanilla to make it less bitter. This is an important part of the recipe because if you do not have any chocolate or vanilla, Henrys are even more tasteless!
Heaton was created as a way for people to treat themselves when they were thirsty. It also helped promote health and wellness by letting people get their fix of caffeine and sugar, which are good for health.
As mentioned earlier, Henrys is a carbonated beverage. This refers to the addition of carbon dioxide to liquid to make it foamier and/or bubblier.
Most common terms for carbonation are flushing or agitation, which refers to the process of putting liquid into containers with small openings where the air inside moves around and receives the added pressure from the gas inside.
When this meets together with a container with closed ends, you get that lovely little bubbles when drinking. Sometimes they get bigger than that, like when shooting a party-style drinks party.
The term agitation can be used both for positive and negative, as in not using enough pressure when adding the soda to a drink will result in less down time.
Distilled spirit is the term for alcohol that has been distilled into a liquid state. In this case, the alcohol has been extracted and combined with sodium carbonate to create Henry’s Hard Sodaaque.
Distilled spirit can come in many forms. Some of these forms are whiskey, rum, vodka, and dry martini mix-in-a-bottle-type drinks like mirin (sweet rice wine) and kokouro (a sweetened rice liquor).
Distilled spirits are always higher in alcohol than water-based cocktails like a margarita or an avocado toast staple, an empalmada (a flat bread topped with a meat or cheese) with agave nectar and fresh herbs.
Since distillers usually use grain neutralization techniques to remove color and flavor components from grain used in making spirits, it is important to look for these features.
While there is always something new and exciting for cocktailsmiths to create, several classic drinks are recorded as having mixed ingredients. These include classic drinks like Miller Geneey, Zero-Znacle, and Long Island Ice Teas with rum or tequila base!
A variation of the drink cocktail is the use of beer or cider. These may have an umbrella drink style of mixer + beverage + garnishment = happyness.
Classic Examples: Gin & Tonics, Key Limes & Mints, and Vodkas with fruit flavors like melon or citrus.
Variation: The addition of sparkling wine or soda makes it a variation of a fruit cocktail.
Acetate is the generic name for cellulose acetate, the substance found in Henry’s that is added as a filler. As mentioned earlier, it is also used to make plastic facial tissues, so you do not think of something else in it when drinking Henry’s!
Acetate is an artificial substance made from a compound made from carbon and oxygen. It does not naturally occur in nature and cannot be consumed by itself.
Although it does not taste good, acetate can be used as an ingredient in alcoholic beverages. This is called add-acetic-to-an-alcohol (AAAT alcohol). The term AAAT means that there are no ingredients of any type except for water and carbon and oxygen to create the acetaldehyde base.
The process of making AAAT alcohol can be complicated, so most home distillers today use a mixture of water and acetaldehyde (the same thing as nail polish remover) to create it.
Most common form of alcohol in regular soda is ethanol, or grain alcohol. This is important to remember, as it is not! Many recipes call for just enough ethanol to taste off, so that you can enjoy your drink.
Sodas contain both carbon dioxide and dry electricity, making it a dangerous product to drink alone. When carbon dioxide is combined with water, it becomes H20.
Dry electricity is a myth; there are no real traces of electricity in soda!. It does have an amusing name, though: tetrahydrochlordiazepoxide (THC). This drug/alco- looks like pepper spray but doesn’t sting!). is the second most common substance in soda after glucose syrup.
When THC and glucose are combined, they create eye contact and trust problems.
Most popular type of alcohol these days is sugar-sweetened Continuous Clear or Continuous Color. This means it does not change color when refrigerated or frozen, and it does not change color when mixed with water.
Sugar-sweetened beverages are a staple diet item for many people, making up a large part of the beverage industry. As a way to promote healthy habits in kids, teens, and drinking enthusiasts, this is a cost-effective way to market your brand.
Since Henry’s Hard Sodaëëëës contain no caffeine, this is an issue for people looking for an effective buzz.
More commonly known as sugar, fructose is most closely associated with honey. Both are a simple sweetener that is extracted from fruit.
Despite its name, Henry’s isn’t always a clear soda. There is a small amount of fructose in the mixture which helps with preservation. As for advertising, there are almost no claims made for it other than it tastes good and may be useful in dieting.
As with any artificial sweetener, it can cause digestive problems if not used in accordance with the recommendations.
It’s not always clear what type of citric acid is in Henry’s, and how much is in it. Most drinks contain added citric acid, but not in as high a concentration as Henry’s does.
Henry’s is known for using high-quality lemon juice and sugar, so as a recipe-confectioner, he knew what was needed to make his lemonade. He used five grams of calcium lactate, or just under one teaspoon of it, which is the equivalent of one small packet of sugar.
Calcium lactate is an emulsifying agent, which means it can be paired with another liquid to create a cream or base for a drink. It can also be used as a facedispaper during cocktails class!
Because Henry’s uses higher-quality ingredients, his sodas are better for tasting and promoting endurance sports such as running or jumping.
