I'll answer the above question with a resounding yes! You've probably used the soft drink as a mixer, right? Well, the company may be taking the work out of mixing your own with a new line of drinks currently only available in Japan.

It's called Chu-Hi, and it's a carbonated fruit-flavored drink that's different from a drink using ordinary coke as a mixer, it's made with something called shochu, which results in a relatively low alcohol drink, only 3-8% by volume. Will it ever come our way here in the states? That remains to be seen but, it's probably better than wine coolers and other similar adult beverages.

I think I'll stick to my Shiner Bock.
