Here in Malta, there’s a local soda called Kinnie. It’s fairly popular, though it must be an acquired taste, because to me it tastes like nineteenth-century cough syrup.
When I lived in Ireland, I learned about Club Orange, which was a popular citrus soda native to the country.
I’ve begun to wonder if there are similarly popular, locally-made sodas in other countries. Does Canada have one? Canada Dry, but that’s not really popular enough to be as omnipresent as Kinnie and Club Orange.
Do you know of any such soda-nation pairs? I’m making a list.
