QUADRIVIUM

Have you come here to play Jesus to the lepers in your head?

the best soft drink on the planet.

People can kid themselves all they want, but when it comes to soft drinks, everyone knows Mountain Dew is king. A slightly lesser known fact is that the Dew pays tribute to Ale-8-One to keep the drink from stealing his crown.

“Ale-8” was first bottled in Kentucky in 1926. As much a staple of the bluegrass state as tobacco and basketball, this blend of citrus ginger ale has remained a local favorite, available only in Kentucky, and parts of Ohio and Indiana.

But, thanks to Al Gore’s internet, I can have the generous folks at the bottling plant in Winchester send me a case.

Cheers.

  2. Yeah, man!!! You have captured the essence of “Clark County River Water” exceptionally well. Ambri has his own issues to deal with.

  3. By the way, thanks for letting me try this earlier this week. While I don’t think it’s the BEST soft drink, it is definitely better than most. Especially now that I know what to steal from your desk when you’re not loo–

    I mean…um…get you for Christmas. Yeah.

  5. It doesn’t matter if it’s Dew, Pepsi or Ale-8-one they all have citric acid in them. I know first hand what citric acid does as an extremely caustic acid… oh your poor stomachs! I’ll stick to coffee thank you.
