Bottled Soda tastes differ ??

Post by wazza » April 28, 2017, 11:25 am

Tried the Rock Soda the other day and found it to be slightly less "fizzy" than Chang.

I use soda with Robinsons Pre Mixes and Bickfords Ginger Beer syrup.

I refuse to buy Singha products after the Bangkok Based heiress suggested all Issan people should be killed years ago on her FB

Apologies for the late reply, had IT issues and got spammed ( i think ) got blocked for 5 hrs - spamhaus blah bah

Tops Ginger Beer is 115 Baht

Villa is 139 Baht

Brickfords also have a nice lemon, lime varieties as well

Both venues still have some Ginger Beer in stock, as at this afternoon

Works out at 9 Baht for Soda, and say 2-3 baht per shot for syrup, plus ice ( free from Samsung ) and lime slices ( home grown )

Moscow Mule, is Ginger Beer, ice, vodka, lime slices and a few sprigs of mint over the top, :)

On the rare occasion I have put soda in my whisky, normally only when I am drinking with friends to even up the consumption rate, I only ever use Schweppes, straight from a freshly opened can. I have never understood the Thai habit of ordering soda when drinking and the waitress opens two bottles and leaves them sitting there to get flat, might just as well put in water .
Ageing is a privilige denied to many .
