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:


                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

                1. Has anyone had it?

                  Not voluntarily.

                  Were you chatting it up with Laverne's Chinese cousin, by chance?

                  1. Why hasn't everyone tried this and reported back yet? I don't have Sprite in the house, or I totally would, just to see.

                    1. I wonder if it refers to "dark" soy sauce, which is much less salty, and actually has a rather molassasy taste.

                        No, it's made by hand and not mass produced with chemicals. It's a longer, more arduous process.

                          Oh, ok. Well, how about adding a pinch of wasabi and your good to go!

                      2. I have not heard of Sprite and soy sauce as a drink, but those two ingredients are often used as a marinade for Filipino barbecue.

                        1. I just finished the book that mentions this, and googled sprite and soy sauce, which led me to your question. I am going to get some sprite and add the soy sauce. Everyone in the book loved it......of course the book was fiction......but i will report back.
