Compiled by soda fountain expert Gregory Cohen, the chart is exhaustive, but it is easy to follow the arrows to the identity of a specific drink, as well as see the differences between drinks. For instance, blending soda water with ice cream produces a double awful, but if you add ginger syrup to the mix, it's called a yip. (Needless to say, the old-fashioned names are half the fun.)
Julia Moskin at the New York Times shared this chart, which she stumbled onto while researching a story on the history of the American soda fountain.
