I even broke both my Pepsi rules, and:
1) paid more than £1 (£1.50 in Sainsbury's) and
2) bought more than a can.
Pepsi's characteristic caramel tone was the first flavour to greet my tastebuds, followed by a smooth ginger aftertaste. It wasn't enough to deliver the spiciness of a ginger beer, but it was there, offering a little warmth in the background. I wasn't sure if the combination would work, but somehow the flavours fused and didn't fight against each other.
I then had a brainwave. Rum.
I'm a big fan of the classic Cubre Libre, but occasionally I switch things up and opt for a Dark'N'Stormy. Could the new Pepsi Max offer a mid way -a stormy Libre or Dark Cubre perhaps?
On a week when arguably the U.K's most famous redhead broke records and dominated the charts, it seems that ginger is winning all round. I'm not sure I'll always opt for this new Pepsi Max, but it certainly makes for a refreshing change! Bravo Pepsi.
