Hey, warm lemonade is actually pretty good
..on a cold, rainy day like today...

Yes it sounds gross, and antithetical to its supposed "refreshing" purpose, sure...

But I have this bottle of Santa Cruz Rasberry Lemonade,
and I just drank a big mug of it warm!!

Mmmm.

( no Piss Jokes Please!! :silly: )

1. When we went camping as a kid...
...my parents used to get the cheap soda at the store and it included a carbonated lemon drink. I decided to heat a can of it up on the camp fire one day, for reasons I have yet to understand :), and yeah, it was pretty darn good. The rest of the family thought I'd finally lost it. They haven't changed that opinion in 30 years too.

Add an analgesic to it and ya got TheraFlu though.

6. You're right...
I knew I'd tasted something like it before! There's this natural cold remedy I've used, comes in packet, it's something like TheraFlu.

14. Ugh, can't do that. Woodford Reserve for me
in my cold tonics.

Jack is just nasty.

I don't even like the taste of brandy or cognac or armagnac in my tonics. Of all the whiskies and other spirits I've tried, Woodford Reserve is the only one that actaully tastes okay and good to me in my hot tonics.

Meaning no offense to you.

Jack, and other spirits, are okay otherwise, though. Just not hot.

13. A weird but good drink to have at the coffee shop...
...is get an Italian soda (seltzer with a shot of flavored syrup - I say this because you know liberals all get lattes so they don't know about these) with half cinnamon and half pink grapefruit syrup. Serious it's good. Only problem is it's hard to find a coffee shop that still has pink grapefruit. In the early nineties at Espresso Royale they'd have a ton but now it seems places tend to standardize.
