Favorite Lemon Lime Beverage?

I personally like Sierra Mist, Sprite's too fizzy.

Yeah, I pretty much go with Sierra Mist.

But I'm not opposed to drinking Sprite or 7UP if that is what is offered. Don't bite the hand that offers you drinks, right?

Sprite. You hardly ever see 7-up anymore in Britain and i've never heard of Sierra Mist.

"7-Up Yours" was my personal fav

and also gets my vote in the poll. It's 'all natural' now and has a pretty distinctive flavor than what it once had

I no longer drink soda like I used to... I would go into why but it is too harsh to mention here.

But when I did, I would pick 7-Up. Though I was a hardcore Mountain Dew fan myself.

I'm not sure, either. I don't really have a preference between the mentioned beverages.

What's Mr. Pibb?
I'm a hardcore mountain dew fan myself. but out of the options I'll go for.... 7 UP. And I think Mountain Dew is more of a sugar drink than anything else...

Mountain Dew is a sugar drink lol. But Chase, is Dew really citrus? I'll have to try some again, because I do not remember tasting any citrus.

Out of all the "pop" out there, Mountain Dew has the most sugar out of all the pops.

There, some more pointless crap that you didn't want to know.

Well thankfully we have Mountain Dew in Finland
I still remember the first time i tasted it, at the cinema when I wen't to see MIB 2
7 up is better than Sprite imo.

If you spread Vegemite very thinly then it tastes alot better than the way alot of Americans try it (which is thick) umm... and is that Pibb Xtra stuff any good? It sounds alright...

7-Up, dying over and over again is much easier to accept knowing I can take it.


I'm done putting links in my signature because every time I do it just links to some old crap I've long since stopped updating.

Are you serious? ^^ It's a mixer drink that you get at pubs and bars and stuff. It's nice, try it some time.

Lemon-Lime Bitters is yummy, but in itself isn't quite the kicker that Crown is (the 'bitters' are more "aromatic" than anything...)..

However, because "Charlies", a Yankee term for Lemon/Lime Bitter.. hehehe, taste so good.. it can be dangerous, depending if you use vodka or gin substitutes.

You'll down several of them before you know it and then you wonder why you're staring at the ceiling when you try to get up from your seat

Given the choice though.. I prefer Crown and Coke any day

Me I'm all for 151 & Coke, or at home Bacardi Limon & Mt. Dew. Doesn't matter the ratio because it tastes like dew.

If I'm drinkin' Jack, it's straight-up.. * rebel yell * woooooooo... hehehe..

Well, to try to salvage as much topic I can, anyone remember (or can still find) Upper 10? I remember it well living in Michigan, but moving here to Tennessee.. I think I've seen it maybe once or twice... that was a good alternative for Lemon-Lime drinks. Just wish I could still find it
