Whilst only slightly related in being libation, Tesco Plum and Pear flavoured water is currently my favourite flavoured water, having only first tried it a few weeks ago (possibly a new flavour? It's the only one with a new style label). It's even better now they've got the bottles at 37p each - it tastes a lot better than 37p.

If you go to Germany, there's a Cola / Orange combo which is bloody gorgeous.
Mezzo Mix.
Is this ever called "Cola Mix" in Krautland?
I think it was something by that name that, on a VI Form German exchange in 2001, my wife said was the only way she could bear the taste of Coke. We weren't married at the time, in case you were wondering. In fact she didn't even like me back then. Because I never did any work in A-level German and always dicked about on the computers at the back of the class (almost certainly on some internet forum discussing television). She wouldn't even give me her mobile number when we got back to Blighty. I don't know why she married me either. My willy's really small as well....

Replace A-level German with A-level History, but ”not doing any work while dicking about on the computers” is a pretty similar sixth form experience to mine, though I’ll throw in “trying to get girls to notice me” for good measure.

Cola Mix is the generic name, Mezzo Mix is the brand.

Taking it one step further, replacing German Exchange with History Exchange sounds ever so exciting.
Basically you go back to witness Waterloo or something, and in turn your family has to look after Lenin for a week.
I'll pitch the idea to ofsted.

You'll end up as a king's fool in the middle ages.

Not to be confused with a middle-aged 'king fool.

Update. This year's IKEA Julmust (500ml fizzy bottle) is indeed the same as last year, so all is well.

I may have drunk 3 bottles already this evening.

Fun fact. The syrup for Julmust, regardless of manufacturer, comes from one supplier in Orebro, central Sweden, which is where my sister in law lives and is often called "Little Stockholm." Beautiful little town with a slott/castle, and surrounded by what I call "real Sweden" - i.e. forests, long roads, moose and falu red houses.

EDIT 2: Reading up on Julmust and given the title of this thread, this isn't the first time Coca-Cola have tried to get in on the Xmas act. Because Julmust is such an integral part of Xmas in Sweden, Coke consumption drops by 50% and so they tried to get in on the act by releasing their own Julmust....which annoyed a lot of people as they didn't know it was a Coke product due to the small logo on the label.
