Dear 100 Hour Board,
In your personal opinion, what is the best drink combination you can get at Swig, Sodalicious, or any of the other drink mixers around town?
(Sorry guys, I'm not much of a soda drinker.)

Dear Rock Doctor,
My favorite is the one with Dr. Pepper, cream, peach flavoring, and coconut flavoring. I don't know what it's called but it's so good.
Also, I felt like I should tell people the last soda I had was a bottle of Mountain Dew Voltage while listening to this and doing a 1 hour timed fluid dynamics test at 11pm at night. Mountain Dew Voltage is not only a delicious blue raspberry flavor, but it went perfect with the frenetic chaos of the whole situation. Anyways...
I suppose to answer this, I would be telling you what you already know - but for the sake of everyone else, the Butterbeer mock-ups at both Swig and Sodalicious are really good. The basic flavor of rootbeer, butterscotch, and vanilla is hard to beat.
On a day when I'm feeling something with more fruit, I go for something like The Tropic from Swig or Your Number from Sodalicious. Or, I mix up my own: 7-Up, strawberry puree, passionfruit, and peach. Unbeatable. Always go for the puree to replace a normal flavor when possible. It's always a bit more, but it's sooo much tastier.
Also, the fresh strawberry and cherry limeade slushes at Sonic are really good too, but you know this.
I'm so lame since in my entire college career, I've gone to these places once(?) each. I had to look online to see the menu. It's probably because I don't like Coke, Pepsi, or Dr. Pepper as I didn't drink much soda growing up. Please don't hate me. Caffeine also affects me greatly and I avoid it after 3 p.m. So why would I get Mountain Dew if I could just get Sprite? (Or some other tasty soda that I prefer with better flavoring that won't keep me up at night.)
At Sodalicious I would get "Eternal Companion" which is a 7-UP base + Peach + Blue curacao.
At Swig, none of them look familiar... I'd be interested in "Loop-T-Loop" which is Sprite + Peach + Strawberry + Watermelon.
But in all honestly I'd rather go to Wendy's and get a 4 for $4 and get soda that's 90% peach and 10% orange. Now THAT'S my ideal mixology place! Wherever there's a Coke Machine. #SouthernPeach
