I must admit, we drink a bit of San Pellegrino. 3-4 large bottles per day, sometimes more. Guess it is an addiction! Now, adult beverages are pretty much the gist of any soda/pop. Although I get a craving for Vernor's once in awhile. If I can find Birch Beer on tap, I'm there!

Thumbs up ginger ale with a twist

I like Ginger Ale, with cranberry juice.

Welcome to DC. I like ginger ale also, but for variety like to have some ginger beer watered down with sparkling water. Ginger ale also works great in a Presbyterian highball.

I like ginger beer as a mixer too. What is a Presbyterian highball?

I wonder how ginger beer would go with cranberry.

A tall (~10 - 12 ounce) drink with a few ice cubes.
I like a Presby made from ginger ale, seltzer, and a rye (like Seagrams V.O. or Canadian Club). Usually will quench one's thirst without getting looped. With ginger beer, I use 1/3 ginger beer and 2/3 seltzer; with ginger ale 50 -50 ale and seltzer.
And 2 ounces of hooch.

Now I wish I had some seltzer in the house.

Ginger ale, ginger beer, Canada Dry is fine. Diet Mountain Dew. Cherry Coke Zero. Cheap seltzer with cranberry juice and Red Zinger tea.

Of course, Prosecco!

It's bad when you hide it from yourself...

Coca Cola and Chinotto, which is an Italian carbonated beverage made with the fruit called Chinotto, of the family of oranges and co., which has a flavor slightly similar to Coca Cola.
But I can't buy them often because I'm an addicted and can drink a 2 liter bottle in a couple of hours...
