Taste Sensation! Kickapoo Joy Juice

While in the local Asian grocer, we noticed that they'd stocked their drinks fridge so of course Gib had to stock up too. We bought a few different types, but this one is always a favourite, not only for the name (which cracks me up every time), but the taste:

Kickapoo Joy Juice

It's a citrus flavoured soda, produced by Monarch Beverages in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, and tastes similar to New Zealand's L&P (Lemon and Paeroa). It's lemony but with a bitter edge owing to it being made with tonic water. It was named after a drink that featured in Dogpatch comics. Made by Lonesome Polecat & Hairless Joe, it was "a liquor of such stupefying potency that the hardiest citizens of Dogpatch, after the first burning sip, rose into the air, stiff as frozen codfish". And it doesn't contain any caffeine.
