When making homemade beverages try connecting two bottle caps with a piece of clear tubing and screwing them on to the bottles one bottle will contain the beverage and the other bottle containing vinegar and baking soda the Co2 from the bottle containing vinegar will pass through the tube and goes in the beverage containing bottle. This process carbonates your beverage and this device sells cheap for round about $7. This process makes it extremely impossible for air to go through. Without beverage tubing process your beverage will be tasteless as beverages should contain some "fiziness." Usually most beverages contain carbonated water if you check through the ingredients.
