Lisa: Mom, Bart’s drinking coffee!
Bart: It’s not coffee, it’s hot Pepsi.
– The Haw-hawed Couple (The Simpsons Season 18 – Episode 8)
New Year’s Eve is the worst. I know some people enjoy it and celebrate by standing around in a freezing cold square for like six hours without a bathroom break, but that’s not really for me. My biggest problem with NYE is that most years it falls on a weekday, which means my body wants to go to bed around 10:30. If for some reason I do want to stay awake, caffeine is required. Enter Hot Pepsi!
Warm Pepsi in a saucepan over a low heat for approximately 5 minutes. Consume immediately.
The problem with heating a carbonated beverage is that during the heating process you lose all the carbonation. Basically Hot Pepsi tastes like flat Pepsi that has been accidentally stored behind a radiator. It’s drinkable, but I wouldn’t recommend it as a coffee replacement.
