I love this drink! It is quite cheap, in Thai I pay 47 Baht for it!!!! This is less than half in Cambo!
Another reason to leave soon back to Cambo, where else can I go after 20 years in Thai???

Sub topic for teetotallers, or just any old hard-working thirsty throats.
Nothing beats home made, but what is the best canned lemon squash in Cambodia?

I used to like Schweppes bitter lemon, but now they have replaced the quinine with a blunter weapon. Not the same sharp piquancy as before.

I think the first brewery that does a reasonably good tasting Light/lite is going to be on a winner!. In Philippines the San Mig Lite is the one I see most drink in the bars and clubs. They also do an Apple and a Lemon flavored but it is weaker. (ladies choice mostly)

A shandy on a really hot day is very refreshing.

The beer you have when you're not having a beer; 65 cents at Lucky.

While Sprite is just too damned artificially sweet, try adding a splash of the chemical that's sold as cheap lime juice, and maybe a splash of whiskey, over a lot of ice. One of my favourite drinks on hot days!

Yeah, nothing beats a good cutting home made ginger beer! Have you made it here? How's it go with the temperatures? Here's something that will really give you a bad mental image. On a stinking hot day, take 2/3 a glass of superchilled ginger beer and slowly pour in fresh milk. The milk will curdle and look disgusting, but scull it anyway - very refreshing.

It's appropriately called Afterbirth.

I'm glad other men feel manly enough to admit this! I actually don't like drinking beer when the weather is too tropical, but a 50/50 shandy hits the spot. That's probably why Raddler-style drinks will do well here, especially if they don't come with stupid pricing. After all, it's a blend of 50c drinks, right?

Seems to me it's all a cynical plot by the brewery to make more money from less..essentially a soft drink with just 2% alcohol. Sure, good ladies style drink at a bar.

Be a darn site cheaper to buy separate Anchor and Sprite cans and mix yourself at home.

San Miguel have done something similar in the Philippines...you've got San Mig Light which is actually light calorie (aka less sugar) but still 5% alcohol. Then you have San Mig Apple and Lemon flavors but 3% alcohol...from memory it's the same price as the San Mig Lite so they make money on that.

The locals there are into Red Horse beer coz it has 8% alcohol vs the regular San Mig so best bang for your buck.....but it kicks like a mule.. :plus1:

Never much of a beer drinker anyway, scotch or bourbon man myself...the shandy is nice, maybe comes from all the Lynchburg Lemonade I used to mix up in the hot weather. I can't see slamming any booze when it is really damn hot...shandy type drinks are a nice in between.
