1. Cucumber soda is actually not bad. Very crisp and refreshing.
Check out Galco's Soda Pop Stop for all kinds of soft drinks:

They have lots of unusual flavors I'd love to try sometime.

8. ... or Cel-Ray soda.
My grandmother used to drink that when I was a kid. It's a New York thing. I think they still make it.

13. Dr. Brown's!
The Jewish deli down the street from where I went to school in Queens stocked tons of that stuff.
They have the absolute best Black Cherry soda as well.

14. Oh god yes.
I know people that actually drink that stuff. Apparently the elite form of a Bloody Mary is to use Clamato. Gross.
