I get sick of diet coke and Pepsi quite often. I've never really liked them anyway but you can't beat the carb count. So to change up my pop flavor I do something that works quite well. I mix most pops with diet coke.
I've discovered that you can mix diet 3:1 and whatever you put into the diet becomes the main flavor. It's just like having whatever drink you mix except with a quarter of the carbs. So while I was in Disneyland I did something similar.
We were at the Blue Bayou and the waiter was listing the drinks. I was looking to see if they had any diets beside coke. They didn't but he did mention Shirlee Temple's and Roy Rogers'. I hadn't had one in forever.
"I've got a really weird request for you, do you think you're up to it?" I asked.
He looked at me with a bit of surprise and then grinned, "Sure, give me what you've got."
"I was wondering if you could do a Roy Rogers but make half of it Diet Coke."
"Well that is definitely one I haven't heard before. I'd be glad to." He then took the rest of our order and went back to the kitchen.
He walked back carrying our drinks, "You'll have to let me know how it is, if it's good we'll have to name it. What would you name it?"
There was no question. "The Lucky Druggie." The waiter looked really confused but my aunt and cousin just laughed.
I thought it tasted great. In my opinion, it tasted better than the original.
I really liked that waiter. There was a guy on the floor that did refills but our waiter made sure to keep my drink filled himself. Whenever I got near an empty he was there with a new cup. He was really cute too. Gotta love a good waiter.
