Just wanted to explain to the world the secret to my success: Raspberry Coke!
Initially released in New Zealand in 2005, it was only around for a few months before being discontinued (Wikipedia page). Luckily my family visited New Zealand and we were served Raspberry Coke at our hotel.
Naturally, it wasn’t for sale back in South Africa, so I had to improvise. I generally use a few drops of Raspberry Cordial with a large glass of Coke otherwise the taste is too strong.
I should note that I only drink Coke on weekends, at the behest of my friends and family.
If you want, try it for yourself, you might just like it!
Thanks for listening!
