im all about dr pepper.  though interestingly i didnt really like it as a child i was more a orange soda cream soda kinda guy but then i started to like having some caffeine and since i dont really like colas or coffee dr pepper was the natural for me.

ive since started to have tea more for caffeine needs but dr pepper remains my soda of choice.

cool list still think orange soda should have merged to get up the list.

Very fun list--a lot of great beverages I forgot to include (um, I drink a ton of wine--and yet I neglected to put it on my list at all. Same with beer. Guess I was in a hard alcohol and cocktail kinda mood when I made it). Anyway, here is mine:

1. Bacon-infused bourbon
2. Mexican Coke (Coke in a bottle)
3. Old-Fashioned

4. Sazerac
5. Unsweetened Iced Tea
6. Hot Green Tea

7. St. Germain Elderflower Liquor
8. Pineapple Juice
9. Dirty Martini
10. Arnold Palmer
11. Spiced Hot Apple Cider
12. Dr. Pepper

13. Faygo Rock n’ Rye
14. Kerns Strawberry Banana Nectar
15. Hendricks Gin
16. Jack and Coke
17. Grape Kool-Aid
18. Fruit Punch Gatorade
19. Tom Collins
20. Stewart’s Key Lime Soda
21. Cointreau Orange Liquer
22. Lime Calistoga Club Soda
23. Mai-Tai
24. Strawberry Torani Italian Soda (with crème)
25. Malibu Rum

Thought I would share one fun cocktail recipe we've found and altered slightly, and have been making lately. It takes a lot of work and weird ingredients, but it's pretty delicious (and sweet). I also named it...

The Rhu McClanahan
1 1/2 oz. gin (Hendricks Gin preferred)
1/2 oz. thyme syrup (see below)
1/2 oz. simple syrup
1 oz. fresh lemon juice
1 oz. rhubarb puree (see below)
3 dashes rhubarb bitters
1 Thyme Sprig (garnish)

In a mixing glass, combine all ingredients and stir with ice. Strain into an ice-filled highball glass and garnish.

For the thyme syrup: Combine 1/2 cup sugar with 1/2 cup water and 4 fresh thyme sprigs in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer and stir frequently until sugar dissolves. Let cool to room temperature and strain into a clean glass jar or bottle. Refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.

Rhubarb Puree
1/2 cup fresh rhubarb, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 vanilla bean, split

In a medium saucepan, combine all ingredients over medium heat. Bring to a simmer and stir frequently until sugar dissolves. Let cool to room temperature. Remove vanilla bean and puree rhubarb with cooking liquid. Strain into a clean glass jar and refrigerate for up to 1 week.

Very groovy list! The top 4 of water, dr. pepper, root beer, and cream soda are some of my top favs.

Also, I was glad to see my #1 the root beer float place handsomely at number 8. A couple weeks ago a friend of mine and I were super thirsty, at a bar we ordered some root beer floats, which took a long time to be ready. But when they were, we agreed it was the best beverage in history.
