Sprite and soy sauce

I was just reading a book (fair at best) about this as a drink--not regular soy sauce but artisan soy sauce. Has anyone had it? I'm wondering if it's along the lines of peanuts and coke, salt and sweet, and far better than expected?

      It didn't say but I think it was a glass of sprite with a tiny bit of the soy sauce. I can't imagine any more or it would be a salt bomb.

    2. "not regular soy sauce but artisan soy sauce."

      Yeah, that makes it sound so much more appetizing. Why aren't they using artisanal Sprite?

        Perhaps if the book had been about artisanal sprite, it would have been any generic soy sauce and artisanal soy sauce. It was interesting reading about the difference in soy sauce.

      2. Sprite and soy sauce might make a nice marinade - sweet, sour, salty, umami. I can't imagine it as a drink. I hope someone will try it and report back.

          I was thinking that it is a great blend of flavors. They did talk about how everyone hesitated when presented with it but then loved it.

            I'd think if you're open to doogh, you'd be open to this.

              i have used it as a marinade for chicken, but it would NEVER occur to me to drink it straight up!

                This book:

                http://www.amazon.com/Soy-Sauce-Begin...

                As I said it was fair at best but an easy read. The part about the soy sauce was interesting.

              2. You mean like mixing Sprite with Soy Sauce? For whatever reason, my gut feeling tells me to avoid this. :P
