Suicide (drink)

When I was a kid, my favorite soda was all the sodas mixed together. You get your cup, you go to the soda fountain, and you take a little bit of each soda until your cup is full. We used to call it a Suicide. Other people call it different things, but it’s still the same thing. A Suicide has no set recipe and it will taste different every single time. Sometimes it will taste horrible, sometimes it will taste great. It all depends which sodas they have on tap. Some sodas don’t mesh well with others. A diet soda will always taint the Suicide with a weird aftertaste, so you should avoid that. And Pepsi contaminates it immediately. Dr Pepper is one of the best sodas to use. Some people consider Dr Pepper to be a Suicide soda by itself because it already has 23 different flavors. Adding it to a Suicide will make your mouth happy. You should make a Suicide if you’ve never had one before. Have fun, experiment a little, and be creative.

Diet Coke with Lime

Diet Coke with Lime is Diet Coca-Cola with lime flavor added to it. I’m not a big fan of diet sodas, but this one is pretty decent. It’s smooth and drinkable and doesn’t have much of an aftertaste. The lime flavor adds a nice, refreshing twist. It makes you wonder why they still haven’t released regular Coke with Lime. That would be even better. And it doesn’t make sense to have a diet alternative to a soda that doesn’t exist. All in all, Diet Coke with Lime is a solid zero-calorie soda that tastes better than regular Diet Coke because it has a citric zest and a less noticeable aftertaste. If I was stuck on an island and had a choice between Diet Coke, Diet Coke with Lime, and a coconut, I would probably choose the Diet Coke with Lime 99% of the time. Every once in a while I would take the coconut.

Diet Coke with Grenadine

I’ve been in the service industry for a few years now and I would always joke about someone ordering a diet soda with grenadine. It was never serious, it was just a hypothetical situation in which a fictional moron would order a sugar-free soda and add cherry flavored sugar to it. It’s the kind of thing that George Carlin would make a punchline out of, like getting a veggie burger with bacon on it. It’s why you don’t pour Red Bull in a decaf coffee.

And then one day a guy ordered a Diet Coke with grenadine. He was serious. My first instinct was to talk him out of it. But he insisted. If I have to contribute to somebody’s diabetes for a 20% tip then so be it. He even had refills. That was the day I lost all faith in humanity and he didn’t see anything wrong with it.  No wonder people hate Americans.

Diet Dr Pepper

Diet Dr Pepper really does taste like regular Dr Pepper. There is a really slight aftertaste, but it’s the diet soda that tastes the most like its full calorie clone. Most diet sodas should taste like the real version. We have seedless watermelon and blue boner pills… come on science, do something productive with soft drinks.
