It definitely was the sugar.  There is seltzer water, which I think is just
carbonated water, but that is an expensive way to add CO2.  Next time,
don't jump from a teaspoon to a cup.  Step it up more slowly, and you can
catch any bad effects before they become catastrophies.

Experimenting is good!
