A friend of mine, who happens to be American, recently casually let slip that her morning beverage of choice is a glass of coke. I will admit to being completely surprised, in fact at first I thought she was joking. But no, she said she has always done it.
Personally I can't imagine drinking something cold, sweet and fizzy first thing in the morning, but if others want to then I'll leave them to it! It got me wondering whether this is common. Is it a habit associated with a particular area of America? Is only coke acceptable or can any carbonated drink be consumed?
I am very curious and would love to hear other people's carbonated breakfast confessions - bucks fizz, mimosa and other brunch cocktails need not be mentioned as I have heard of them! (Plus they are not exactly daily breakfast fare...well, for most people!)
