Let's get down and dirty people! It's nearly midnight and you literally have to finish the last 30 pages of the latest book in the Throne of Glass series. You need a pick me up, but its too late to drive somewhere and you NEED it now. You could just grab a can of pop (I'm saying pop here because I come from Washington State originally, and the word 'soda' still sounds weird to me). Except a can of soda (yep, still is weird) is just, well, kind of boring.
The big new thing - that actually is an old thing that is just coming back - are these soda shops popping up all around now. Near us we have places like Swig, Sodalicious, The Slurp, and Fiiz. A few fast food chains have caught on and you can ask for your drink to be "dirty" or "jacked up". Now it might sound a little "risque," but it's actually just sweet. You can be DIRTY too by adding your own syrup flavoring, fruit purees, and more to make your soda a step above the rest. Plain Sprite, Coke, or Mountain Dew is just a thing of the past. Why not get a Dirty Diet Coke, a Mango Mountain. or Raspberry Dream?
Or better yet, make your own.

I printed it as a 12x18 at Costco and framed it in a cheap frame from Wal-mart.
You could also print it smaller on regular paper.
|You HAVE to try pebble ice from Sonic!|
I bought pebble ice from our local Sonic, whisk is the best ice in the whole world, hands down. They sell bags for $2.50 each. You can buy cups, lids, and straws from them too, but they cost $.20 per cup. I ended up getting clear cups/lids and cute straws from Gygi's. Costco sells them too, but unless you are doing this for over a hundred people and don't live near a store like Gygi's, I would just check out a local fast food chain or party supply store. I once even ran into my gas station and asked if they would sell me some and they gave me 50 for free because I was doing it for a school function.
Enjoy making any number of combinations. The main idea is to add an extra little ZIP to your sip! Let me know your favorite concoctions.
