Root beer, strawberry soda and...??? (Read 299 times)

    My mother in law had a party and afterwards we inherited a bunch of diet root beer as well as some strawberry soda. The rootbeer is OK, but the soda, frankly, is pretty nasty. Anyway, I usually don't drink sodas unless they're made with barley. Tongue But, when life gives you lemons...make...well, ...what? Any cocktail ideas for these ingredients? Perhaps I'll just experiment on my own. Strawroot daiquiri, anyone? Maybe not. Arla

    Jiggle, jiggle, jiggle.

      Hmm....I'd throw some vanilla vodka in the strawberry soda and make a 'strawberry cream-sicle' to have. You could throw in lota of ice to de-sweeten it. Or club soda, perhaps. Jilly

        Being a barleypop fan myself, I think the strawberry Tight lipped soda would be a sacrifice to the sewer gods. The root beer - find some thirsty kids.

          That's my thought, as well.

            I'd toss some melon liqueur and lemon bitters in with the strawberry soda..... then i would serve it to my guests while I enjoy a Guinness.

              Melon...wha? Hilarious! Big grin Reminds me of the time when I bought anisette instead of triple sec for margaritas (the bottle looked the same....). Talk about nasty! Arla

                Bols Melon Liqueur I worked a shooter bar during my university years..... the ladies loved shots made with this stuff.... mind you none of those ladies we serious drinkers like we have here.
                  Captain Morgan goes nice with the rootbeer.
                  Lookin' back at my background, tryin' to figure out how I ever got here...

                    Is that like Midori? Ick...when I first turned 21 all I drank at bars were Midori melon-balls (Midori, Vodka, OJ). Now the thought of them makes me wanna hurl.

                      All those silly green and pink etc drinks gag me. Nothing says "hangover in a glass" like a sickly sweet drink. And nothing says "I have no 'nads" like a grown adult sitting with a big, pink drink. Arla

                        Way to HTFU - I sometimes put one of those umbrellas in my Guiness so the rest of the table doesn't stare too much. Pour that Strawberry stuff down the drain unless you can cut it with some Everclear.

                            Saying "balls" would be un-PC. Now that just wouldn't do, would it? Wink Strawberry soda and Everclear - maybe that would be the trick. I'm thinking flask for the ball game to ease the pain associated with $7 Bud Lights. Arla
