This entry by 2fs about his "exbeeriment" made me think of my lunch at Burger King this week. I hadn't been to a BK in years, but noticed that they had a sign above the fountain with various "soda recipes".
A "Half & Half" is 1/2 Diet Coke and 1/2 regular Coke.
A "Black Gold" is 3/4ths Dr. Pepper and 1/4th Coke.
A "Black & White" is Coke & Sprite. We used to call that a "Sproke" in college, and if you make it a little stronger (2/3rds Coke and 1/3rd Sprite) , it tastes like fake ginger ale.
Another good non-carbonated mix is a "Lemontea" (lemonade and iced tea), which also works with Sobe or Fruitopia or other punches. These drinks also mix (individually) with Sprite.
BK also had the "Four Way", which most people call the "Suicide". That's a splash of everything from the fountain -- Coke, Diet Coke, Sprite, Dr. Pepper, Orange, Mountain Dew, etc.. -- and usually tastes pretty nasty. Proof that some great tastes don't taste great together.
Is there any drink (alcoholic or non-alcoholic) that mixes well with root beer?
