My recipe is water + carbon dioxide.

Seriously. I tried carbonating water by fermenting a little sugar and
never had any luck. It carbonated but tasted terrible. Since getting
a CO_2 canister I just pressurize a keg of water to about 25psi and serve.

Of course, an alternative is to buy a seltzer bottle and some of those
CO_2 cartridges. It's a little more expensive but not much. Besides,
you can also buy NO_2 cartridges and make whip cream (or something ;-)
