Get Yo Drank On!
Lots of people don’t think about how important a drink is in regards to their meals. With fancy stuff like wine they do. You drink white wine with some things and red wines with others. Fancy stuff, right? This isn’t about fancy stuff. This is about soda.
With certain foods certain sodas are required. With foods that are heavy in spice (Indian, Mexican) I would request a Sprite, Sierra Mist, or 7-Up. These lemon lime based drinks are good because they don’t overpower the natural spices. The last thing you want is to have a delicious meal and wash all the taste away by drinking something fruity like Hawaiian Punch.
With foods like barbeque fruit drinks are the way to go. Orange soda and grape soda work best. I don’t know why but they do. The strong taste works very well with most meat based dishes as well. Steak with Hawaiian Punch is awesome. Turkey sandwiches with orange soda is good. I suggest you all try it. You wont be disappointed.
Some sodas don’t mix well with foods. Cream sodas and root beers don’t mix with many things. Plain hotdogs and just French fries are okay but who the hell wants to eat that alone? Strong drinks like Coke and nasty ass Pepsi go well with barbeques and meat but never with pastas. By no means should you ever drink a dark soda with pasta.
Try Sierra Mist for Italian foods. I have tried orange soda with pizza and its okay but Sierra Mist offers the perfect combination of fizz to the tomato and cheese.
You all should try these out and let me know what you think. I am a professional in matters of soda. Also, let me know what mixes you find that work well.
