ginger ale

so i discovered last night that ginger ale is a regional drink. as in, when the topic of ginger ale came up last night at the poker table, several, and i mean *several* people who are new orleans natives had no idea what it was.

i was astounded.

mostly a southern thing i think. there was a lot of good ginger ale in oregon, and i know it was everywhere in pennsylvania. i didn't know that it was an uncommon thing in the south.

ginger ale is one of the only carbonated beverages that i actually like as opposed to tolerate.

Ginger ale is probably my second-favorite soda. It is SOOOO delicious. (my favorite being cherry coke)

How odd, I never knew that.

An ex-bf who was from the New Orleans area once told me that southerners tend to call all soft drinks "cola", even when it wasn't. I wondered about that since Dr Pepper is so popular in the south. Plus, wouldn't that be confusing if you went to a restaurant?


Luckily, I'm an ice tea drinker and only had to deal with "sweetened or unsweetened" when in the US.

I had heard of it, but didn't know exactly what it was until 2006 or so.

I loved it upon tasting it for the first time and felt so sad that I had never had it before.
