Mad Dog mixed with a kool aid packet. Brings back some memories I've worked hard to forget

I can't stand or tolerate many of the fruit juices.

I like the taste of orange juice, but just a little bit tears up my stomach. V-8 makes me gag, peppermint schapps clears out my sinuses a little too much.

Never acquired the taste for scotch, can't make myself drink most diet sodas, and MD 20/20 is just nasty.

ohmygosh, I went to a cinco de mayo party last night. The hostess made margaretias (sp?) made from a dry mix. I should have followed my gut instincts when she told me that the dry mix smelled like pine sol and I thought, I do not want to drink pine sol. But I did and I am sorry, should have had the tequila straight. The drink really had a chemical taste, very bad....

10 points if you remember this drink: Orbits. I'm not 100% sure on the spelling, but about 12 years ago there was this clear bottled drink that had little neon-colored gelatinous orbs floating throughout. They sold it at King Soopers in Colorado. I reluctantly took a sip, at the urging of a high school pal...but I just couldn't handle ingesting a chunky soda-like drink. I do love Asian Bubble Tea, also orb-filled, but Orbitz was just WRONG, and I'm pretty sure it's no longer on any store shelves (but correct me if I'm wrong).

citrate of magnesium (lime flavor) - worst non-alc drink ever

I did not remember it by just the name, but once you started decribing it the memories came flooding back. Yes I remember that stuff (how do I collect my 10 points?). It was such a fun novelty for about 5 minutes. I can't believe it was about 12 years ago. Man time really flies.

All of the above except the Orbitz thing. I never had that. I don't even recall seeing it around here.
