Old school cool

Once popular in old-school soda fountains, acid phosphate is becoming a staple behind contemporary cocktail bars. A sour alternative to citrus, it imparts no flavour but plenty of tingle and pucker.

By Extinct ($16.95/250 ml), from BYOB (972 Queen West, 416-858-2932, byobto.com) and play bar chemist.
