I love root beer. There's this really good brand I can't remember the name of. It's not too watery, and has just the right mix of sugar and spices. It tastes good with bagels.

I've got to say that I've taken a liking to the local health shop's Birch Beer. It isn't as, rich I guess, as root beer, but still quite good.

Regarding teas, my all-time favorite has to be Earl Grey.

I need to try more root beers.

As far as tea goes, I like a simple cup of green tea.

I also really like the passion tea lemonade that Starbucks offers with a single pump of the raspberry syrup. It's good stuff.

There is blue razzberry and cherry soda in the fridge, as well as generic Kool-Aid.

was so tempted to troll this thread but refrained

I love living in a town with a lot of Mexican immigrants, and one of the reasons is the availability of Mexican Coca-Cola. For serious, when did they get better at making our soda than we are? Mexican Coke is delicious.

For maximum flavor (those of you who live where there's snow); stick it in a snowbank for about fifteen minutes (ten if its really cold outside, but if that's the case why are you drinking cold soda?), or until those wonderful tiny ice crystals form. Then crack it and drink it.

So tasty. And God bless Mexico for not bowing to the evils of high fructose corn syrup!

Wouldn't it be easier to bring the snow inside, stick it in the freezer, and then stick the Mexicoke in?

Nope, something about the snow being undisturbed, somehow. I do not know how or why it works, but it doesn't work nearly as well if you just bring the snow inside.

Mm, doesn't snow around here often or deep enough for me to really try that.

Oh well.

I should get some Black Cherry Soda tomorrow. Shit is delicious.

@Maddie: indeed. undisturbed snow = God's refrigerator.

As an aside, anyone else tried Leninade?

The soft drink made from the blood and sweat of a Communist revolutionary?

The irony of using the image of a famous Communist revolutionary to sell soda is highly amusing to me.

In any case, yes, I have had it, and it's not bad, although it didn't really blow me away or anything.

It's pretty much just your basic citrus soda.

I just had some Mexican Coke a while ago. It was delicious.waii

Would a tienda have it in stock?

Probably. Check the ingredients — you want to see "cane sugar" not "high fructose corn syrup"

Ok.

...What is the proper term for a Mexican grocery store, anyways?

Mar 17th 2011 at 9:43:13 PM

Tiendas, I believe. That or miscelaneas.

In American Mexican, "bodega" also works.

Nah, really? That's warehouse, I think.

For a big warehouse-y supermarket it works.

I was thinking more like one of those shops you find in the highway

Like I said, American-Mexican. It's changed from it's original meaning of "wine cellar" through "wine and liquor store" through "store that sells food and wine" to "smallish-grocery store", at least around here. I'd never heard "tienda" used. I'll take a look at what the signs say when I go through by the Mexican grocery tomorrow.

I thought "bodega" was more of an East Coast term.
