Vernors Ginger Ale
I don't know what took me so long in life to pick up a bottle of Vernors. I had always passed up on the 2 Liter bottles it in the grocery store, but decided this glass bottle would make a good addition to my soda collection.
I mean, all ginger ales taste the same, right? Of course not. I guess it never had registered that there's an obvious difference: Canada Dry is clear and this isn't. This Ale is flavored with caramel and the dry ginger ales aren't. Oh, it's also aged in barrels for a few years inside their Detroit bottler, which contributes to why the Michiganders I know will swear by it. It's also about the oldest soft drink around, which the bottle reminds me is 1866.
