    Seems ordering a rum and diet Coke is more efficient than ordering a rum and Coke. Close to 20% more efficient. The wonders of Science still amaze me. :beer:

    Been drinking Diet Coke/Pepsi for MANY years and I haven't experienced this....I now like either Coke Zero or Pepsi MAX......However, I have found the more ICE you put in the glass the faster you become BUZZED.....LOL

    In the interest of furthering science and helping mankind, I will volunteer for this research project. Scotch and soda or Vodka and soda should be tested as well.

    Good to know, I always thought it was the 3/4's of a fifth I drank that was making me drunk.

    Rum and Orangina, don't knock it till you've tried it. Not exactly low cal, but less sugar than tonic and sweet mixers.

    It's a carbonated beverage made with 10% orange juice, I just picked up a few bottles at a local grocery store that sells close out merchandise. I think it originated in Europe. I mixed it with Gin and Vodka too.
