Coco Rico Coconut Soda

Ordinarily, coconut flavored drinks rank right up there with bubble tea in my opinion. But bubble tea won’t get you drunk.

Coco Rico soda often appears in grocery stores supporting heavily ethnic hispanic populations. And as the can suggests, Coco Rico is simply coconut flavor soda in a wonderfully authentically retro can.

But bring your own rum, and suddenly you have a sweet, coconut cocktail similar to a piña colada.

Raspberry Soda

raspberry soda, country club frambuesa

A Frambuesa raspberry soda with authentic packaging that is unintentionally retro.

I don’t often drink soda, but I do like experimenting with small or ethnic brand sodas, like this raspberry soda from Country Club.

Raspberry is one of my favorite artificial fruit flavors, and so on a warm spring night I picked this up out of the refrigerated section of a Bushwick Avenue deli.
