“Happy Fall Y’all!” is what my neighbors wreath says right now. Most of the other front door decor says “Roll Tide!” Where am I?
I’m pretty sure this means something different in other states. But in Utah, it’s nonalcoholic and a delicious concoction of Diet Coke, lime, and coconut. It has been popularized by the Swig drink shack in St. George, Utah.
Here’s the recipe:
The Dirty Diet Coke:
12 oz. of Diet Coke
1/2 a lime, cut into quarters
2 Tablespoons of Coconut syrup (I used sugar free because that’s what I found at the store)
Optional: 2 Tablespoons of half and half
Pour the syrup into the bottom of the glass. Add crushed ice. (I think pebbled ice actually works best, but I couldn’t find any.) Squeeze the limes onto the ice, then toss them in the cup. Pour the Diet Coke over the ice. Add your splash of half and half. Makes one serving.
And if you want to bring it down south, and fit in here in Alabama, you need to be drinking this in your Alabama Tervis tumbler.
My friend Cassie (a true Alabama girl) introduced me to these. They are awesome, buy them at Bed Bath & Beyond with your coupon though, cause they aren’t cheap!
Try it, you won’t be sad.
