I was wondering what everyone's favorite drink combinations are. (Having worked at a theater for 2 years, I've had plenty of time to experiment)

Here's mine:
-Fruit Punch (hi c)& Lemonade
-Blue raspberry icee & mello yello
-sprite & fruit punch
-mixed (blue & red) icee
-fruit punch & red icee (alternate method for a mixed icee.

Others I've heard of:
-Suicide (little kids' favorite): everything that you've got behind the stand (except butter)
-diet & cherry coke
-sprite & diet coke?!
-diet coke & lemonade?!

What's your poison?

A 50/50 mix of Mr. Pibb & Diet Coke isn't bad...

When we sold icees, the kids liked Cherry icee & Coke mixed...

Dr. Pepper and Diet Pepsi can give a dead ringer for Cherry Pepsi.

(I guess this is the Pepsi verison of the before mentioned 50/50 Diet Coke and Mr. Pibb...I mixed about 80% Diet and 20% Dr. Pepper...each fountain is tweeked different)

Someone tonight said that if you mix Pepsi, and Rootbeer together it tastes "Exactly" like Dr. Pepper, I dont think it does but everyone else said so! We just started selling Dr. Pepper and no one flushed out the lines (we used to sell Orange Soda) so the Dr. Pepper has quite a noticable Orangy taste to it and its actually quite good!

we have a gay little coffee stand, and we have all kinds of "flovor shots" and I like raspberry with sprite, or coke. And apple with sprite is good. I tried carmel with surge once and almost threw up, so that wasn't very good

"Urine" = 1/3 Sprite + 1/3 Pink Lemonade + 1/3 Surge
(A popular concoction amongst the boys I used to work with at a different theater!)

"Flubber Broo" 2/3 Cherry Coke + 1/3 Fanta Blue Raspberry Icee
(if its not Fanta, is just isn't the same!)
"Flubber Broo 2" 2/3 Barq's Root Beer + 1/3 Fanta Blue Raspberry Icee

"Fruity Citrus Overload" Hawaiian Fruit Punch + Orange Slice + Pink Lemonade + 7UP + Mountain Dew
(Take it easy on the Dew!)

"It Wishes It Was Ginger Ale" = 7UP + a small shot of Pepsi

'Half-assed Mocha' = coffee + hot cocoa

A few unnamed combos I find to be tasty:
iced tea + pink lemonade
fruit punch + orange slice
fruit punch + 7UP
surge + sprite
coke + pink lemonade
dr pepper + fruit punch

Blarg... now I'm thirsty...

Once, when I was serving in concessions, some guy asked for 1/3 Lift, 1/5 Diet Coke, and the rest Sprite, and assured me it "tastes just like Mountain Dew".

He said I should try it someday.

I have not.
