I feed my wife what I cal l "diet lighhtning," diet 7Up and PA-native everclear. That stuff gets you more twisted than a rollercoaster on a acid trip.

I live for Fresca and I’m always watching my figure, so my drink of choice is FRESKA (with a backwards ‘K’). It’s Fresca and Vodka, and the only problem with this nearly-perfect drink is that a lot of bartenders laugh at me when I order it. The rest just don’t stock Fresca behind the bar.

Whoever posted the above is definitely on to something (I must jump on the next case of Fresca I see at the bodega. And the backwards K...yes!) but their co-opting of my identity is quite mysterious. Reveal yourself, shadowy poster!

Who are you, guy who is pretending to be me? I am John Mahoney, and I love FRESKA.


For your entertainment:

It's very easy to make a great Kahlua equivalent. You can even make it diet if you use splenda rather than suger.

In a pot over med-high heat add:

1. 1 cup of water

2. 1/4 cup of instant coffee, store brand is fine. Stir and mix well.

3. 1 cup of sugar (you can use splenda or splenda sugar mix). Stir and mix well.

4. 2 cups Vodka (as long as it's American vodka you can use the cheap stuff. American law states that American made Vodka has to be filtered at least once, plus you can filter Vodka in your Brita!). Stir and mix well.

5. 1 Tbs of Vanilla. Stir and mix well.

That's makes a skosh more than 750ml, so your old Kahlua bottle works great. It's okay to use immediately, better to let it blend overnight.



For all those fresca lovers out there I recommend the Frisky, fresca and whisky, similar in taste to a 7 and 7 or a whisky sour but I think the name says it all on this one.

tried the drink last nite...not bad.

Oh yes I’ve been drinking Fresca and Vodka for years now. I tried all the newer flavors and was less than impressed, but the original is still awesome. The drink is fresh and crisp with a little bight. I also recommend the 12 oz. can over the two-liter; something about the super fizzy freshly opened can that makes the drink top notch. To avoid confusion at the bars I usually just settle for vodka and tonic with extra lemons but that doesn’t compare to my home favorite Fresca and Vodka!

This is a amazing post, I located your webpage looking around google for a related content and arrived to this. I couldnt come across to much alternative info on this write-up, so it was good to locate this one. I will likely be back to look at some other articles that you have another time.

Having said all this, I suppose somewhere in the fog there is a point to it all. My best guess is this is an attempt to explain that when I complain about being exhausted; when I say I would love to do whatever but really, I need to sleep; when I actually sleep for several days and ignore emails and phone calls, it really is simply part of this disease I have. The very best analogy I can come up with only works for some people. I Sometimes I just feel like I've got mono to the power of ten.
