Pepsi throwback, which is not nearly as good as Coke throwback.

Barq's root beer. I usually never drink soda, but during Lent I give up beer and drink root beer.  :)

Yep, and during Lent I give up wine and drink grape juice. Or put water in a shot glass and pretend it is vodka.

Actually I have used cranberry juice in place of wine when I had none for a spaghetti sauce. It actually works pretty well though nothing beats the real stuff. And it's what I would tell those who scruple to even use wine to cook, like Mormons and certain Protestants. And to be honest, if the teetotalers want to be legalistic a small portion, not enough to even get intoxicated, remains even after cooking. Even after hours of cooking some small degree remains. A very small portion that is so small that it is absorbed by the body so fast that it cannot intoxicate or do any harm. And I think I read somewhere that starlings were thought to sometimes act the way they do because the fruits might be naturally fermented that they eat, causing them to get drunk. But a study showed their bodies absorb any alcohol so fast that they do not get intoxicated. That's a fact that he would tell you of course:

Pepsi.

I don't usually bow before false gods, but the store was out of 2-liters of diet Sunkist, and if I'm going to worship at the altar of a false god I'm at least going to make sure that it is actually a god, and not some mere demon (e.g., Coke).

Green tea. And a great deal. It's the $1 stuff at Walmart. It's not packaged very well because the bags are not individually packaged but it's a great deal.

Fountain Coca-Cola--so much better freshly mixed than from the bottle or can. First vespers, too. So maybe some wine could be good. But I've been legally advised to avoid it. To look good in front of the judge mind you.  ;) Seriously. It does sound good and we will have to go against the advice of  council for our birthday and Easter, won't we, my precious?

True, like Brugse Zot, for example. But I quite like this one. Not candy-ish at all.

The recipe calls it "Rose-Cheeked & Blonde", since it's flavored with rose hips and rose petals in addition to the usual malt and hops.

Interesting. A home brew, I suppose?  Does beer with rose hips taste anything like kriek lambic?

Yes a home-brew. Kriek lambics are usually quite tart, correct? This beer was rather dry and had just a faint floral aroma of rose which was quite pleasant.

Duchesse de Bourgogne. It had a very unique taste. It's an ale that tastes a bit like red wine but with a bitter aftertaste.
