I find that mixing sodas makes them taste like bubble gum. Not my thing other than like with like - e.g. half diet, half regular or half cherry, half regular. Ill be trying suggestions which have been found to be good!

I have never mixed "cokes". I'm a southerner and old hillbilly ladies use "soda" (baking soda) to brush dentures. We call all soft drinks cokes. Go figure. My dad mixes beer and tomato juice 1:2 and calls it bloody beer.

Wow...My siblings and I did that all the time when we were kids (and coincidentally growing up in NY). IIRC it was called a Mickey Mouse.

What about "cokes" & grape juice? (+1 on calling all carbonated soft drinks "cokes" ) As a kid I thought one of the world's great treats was an ice cold grape "coke". The main brands here back then were Nu-Grape & Grapette. These days, I sometimes make my own grape "coke" by mixing a little real grape juice with a good lemon-lime, like Diet Sprite or Mist. Even better than the Grapettes & Nu-Grapes of old! And strangely enough- I like it even better with Fresca. Fresca and a little pineapple juice is very good too. ;\)

We drank Nehi grape in these parts. When I was a kid (I am 34) the hillbilly store near our house charged .25 for a "coke" plus an extra dime if you left with the bottle. Your area of NE Texas and my area of SE Appalachia have very similar traditions and ancestry. Believe it or not your area of Texas speaks the same exact dialect of southern appalachia. Probably the reason you guys call them cokes. Many of my ancestors left a sign saying "GTT". So common here at one time people left for Texas that the initials alone would inform infrequent visitors that the family had "Gone To Texas".

ON, Canada eh?
At our "Italian" dinner table we used to always have red/white wine at the table and our parents used to let us have a little bit when we were younger mixed with some pop. Still to this day I like a good dry red-wine mixed with Coke. It's very addicting. I don't drink wine any other way because I can't stomach the taste of it. ;\) I also like Rye & Canada Dry Ginger-ale ... Favorite on a hot summer day! ;\)
