The Carlsbad mineral waters are usually drunk while hot, as the natural "Sprudel" water has a temperature of 73° C. The artificial Carlsbad waters are therefore frequently imitated in double concentration, and before drinking mixed with an equal quantity of hot water in order to bring them to the temperature and concentration of the natural water. This mixture of hot water with the double strength artificial water, represents then the imitation of the natural water in regard to components and temperature.
