Cis forCarbonated

A drink is carbonated if it has carbon dioxide gas dissolved into it. Carbon dioxide will only dissolve under pressure, so fizzy drinks tend to be slightly pressurised in their bottles. When you open the bottle and release the pressure, the carbon dioxide comes out of the drink in a big rush of bubbles and makes the drink fizzy.
