Tiny Bubbles, Make Me So Happy

Top 5 Carbonated Beverages (With Bonus Drink Recipes!)


  1. Coca Cola - Still the champ after all these years, no matter what those Pepsi loving freaks will tell you. And don't listen to anybody who tells you those stupid stories about leaving a nail or a t-bone steak in a dish full of Coke overnight, and in the morning they're GONE! That's complete bulldung. Wayne Gretzky also used to endorse Coke. If it's good enough for Wayne, it's good enough for me.

    Drink: Cuba Libre
    2 oz Light rum
    Juice of 1/2 Lime
    Coca-Cola


    Pour lime juice into a highball glass over ice cubes. Add rum, fill with cola, stir, and serve.


  2. Fresca - Brought to you by the good people at Coca Cola, Fresca is a caffeine-free grapefruit flavoured citrus soft drink. Grapefruit flavoured! My love of carbonation and my love of grapefruits together at long last, all in a handy 355 ml aluminum can! Don't be fooled by the Sprites of the world, this shit is the bomb refreshing citrus beverage. For reals, yo.

    Drink: The Nomad
    4 oz Lemonade
    1 oz Vodka
    1 oz Fresca
    dash Grenadine


    Mix vodka, lemonade and fresca and serve over ice, add dash of grenadine.


  3. Ginger Ale - Ginger ale is just fantastic stuff, in that it's carbonated, but can sometimes actually settle your stomach. This is almost a necessity for the home bartender.

    Drink: Headless Horseman
    2 oz Vodka
    3 dashes Bitters
    Ginger ale
    1 slice Orange


    Put vodka and bitters into a collins glass. Add several ice cubes, fill with ginger ale, and stir. Add the orange slice and serve.


  4. Tonic Water - The other half of a Gin And Tonic. Nuff said.

    Drink: Gin And Tonic
    2 oz Gin
    5 oz Tonic water
    1 Lime wedge


    Pour the gin and the tonic water into a highball glass almost filled with ice cubes. Stir well. Garnish with the lime wedge.


  5. Champagne - Since I usually can't afford to buy ACTUAL champagne, I'm usually stuck drinking "sparkling wines", but "any port in a storm", as the saying goes. I think the bubbles go straight to your brain and get lodged in there, instantly turning you into a babbling, giggly idiot. Good stuff. Buy a cheap bottle of sparkling wine, get a few oysters on the halfshell, and pretend your at some five-star hotel on the French Riviera (instead of your stank ass living room filled with McDonald's wrappers and two-day old dishes).

    Drink: Fizzy Fuzzy Navel
    1 1/2 oz Peach schnapps
    2 oz Orange juice
    Fill with Champagne


    Pour Schnapps and OJ over 2 ice cubes. Fill with Champagne and stir gently.

    Damn skippy. I was reading somewhere that apparently Quebec is one of the few places in the world where Pepsi outsells Coke on a regular basis. Apparently people used the word "Pepsis" as a derogatory reference to Quebecois. We live in a strange country.
