gingerale

Why is it called ginger ale if it isn't, by Wikipedia definition, an ale? Same reason root beer is called beer: that fuddy-duddy process by which its made, fermentation. Now, whether or not you've got an upset stomach or simply appreciate ginger ale for the slightly spicy, golden elixir that it is, 7-Elevens in Michigan have just created a reason to wish Canada Dry was in fact alcoholic, if only so we could use it to drown our sorrows.

Now available exclusively in Michigan, is the brand new 7-Eleven Vernors Ginger Ale Slurpee. According to a press release, Vernors is the 150 year old, Detroit-based ginger ale company that exacts 80% of its sales in Michigan alone. The new flavor is the first regional-only Slurpee flavor of its kind for the brand.

And to think, all anyone else of us got was stinkin' chili mango.
