I love Coke, it is a poison, but is so good, specially in the glass bottle, with a lot of ice.

There really is no substitute for a good coke is there?  And you're right coke from the glass bottle is much better.  Are you from  South America?  Here in Chicago if we buy Coke in a glass bottle it's called "Mexican Coke", which means the coke is sweetened with sugar cane instead of corn syrup, so it's much better.   Plus I think the glass makes it taste better. Coke, or any pop, in plastic is pretty much undrinkable to me.

Another things some of my South American  friends turned me onto was Fernet and Coke.  Very refreshing.

Here they have just released Coke sweetened with stevia, it comes in a green bottle and although still poison it's much tastier than regular Coke. But I'll probably stop drinking it now that I'll stop getting them for free. The only sodas I'll actually buy in normal conditions are those made from guaraná, or more seldom lemon sodas too.

Now I just had a huge cup of coffee, with some soy milk and sugar to hide the bitterness of old coffee without breaking the fast again.

For myself, Yuengling Brewery's Original Black & Tan. And probably enough that I ought to call it a night. Please pray for me, a sinner. I always forget to drink water, too, which is also quite exquisite.

Did you ever try it with Sprite? Usually I would recommend Ginger Ale, however I've found that Colt 45 mixes especially well with Sprite.

When I learned that just a little bit of Ginger Ale makes very cheap beer and most IPA's palatable, well I still have my favorite Porter, but I no longer wince when someone mentions Budweiser, for example. Actually, I'm a huge fan of their Chelada's, as in I fell like perhaps they ought to be criminalized because they are just too delicious. Not their lager, though.

The straight Colt 45, on the other hand, it's not that it's not palatable, only it isn't as easy to drink. Don't you agree?

Quote from: Fr Alexander Schmemann
The Gospel is quite clear: both saints and sinners love God. "Religious" people do not love him, and whenever they can, they crucify him.

Of course, OC.net is not reflective of the Church, but is rather a surreal bubble. I have visited a lot of different parishes around the world and have listened to many hours of AFR...

Stella Artois pear cider. Their apple is unbeatable, but the pear is also a very strong contender in a pretty niche market.

Finding perry is difficult, even here in the US.

I didn't even know there was something such as perry, although I dislike apple cider for some reason I think this must be good.

I've had some good ciders and many terrible ones.  I've only had three perries (not too many producers) and they have all been far superior to any apple cider I've ever tasted, even the best ones.

Babycham is a British institution. Not a complete lightweight in the alcohol department, either (started at 12%, currently at 6%).
