I try to stay away from carbonated (& caffeinated) beverages, & stick with Sprite Zero.

Also depends on what I'm drinking...

Seltzer for (NYC) Egg Creams

I used to enjoy Cream Soda (Dr. Brown's?) in NYC delis, with a pastrami sandwich. Not sure if they make it anymore. I miss Yoo-Hoos too.

I like that we can buy Mexican Coke at Latino markets and restaurants. It's made with Real Sugar instead of HFCS ( not that that's a terrific improvement). I drink way too much soda pop. About a 12 pack q/2weeks. And I don't find it's a thirst quencher.

I probably drink more Ice tea than anything. In summer a treat is lemonade or limeade frozen concentrate or home-made, mixed with carbonated water. I find it silly we pay the same price for bubbly water as soda pop.

Does anyone ever drink Moxie? I have not seen it available here. It might have been more widely distributed a long time ago, but is mostly a NE US soft drink now.

Tonic water: A good Gin & Tonic can be refreshing ... or Rum & Tonic or Vodka and Tonic.

San Pellegrino sparkling water is my all time fave ... I have tried numerous lovely Sardinian ones too on this last trip over in May, in Sardinia, however, most are not exported.

Have nice wkend.
Ciao, Margi.
Pellegrino is second on my list. I still prefer Perrier. I prefer both with a touch of lemon.

I like IBC's line of old fashioned bottled soft drinks, especially Black Cherry.

We got a case of Thomas Kemper's Rootbeer when we were at Costco today...very good!

Put a little vodka in with the tonic water, and it's not too sweet. Squeeze of lemon or lime, as well.
