Your future favorite soda might be one you’ve never heard of.
Residents of Chicago, Milwaukee, and elsewhere in the Midwest have long been in love with the kelly-green, lime-flavored concoction known as Green River soda. The effervescent pop first hit the shelves in 1919, and fans have been sipping it up on its own or as a mixer with enthusiasm ever since.
