A can of Mountain Dew on ice.
You Should Think Twice Before Using Mountain Dew In Mixed Drinks
While Mountain Dew, Sprite, and 7UP are all citrus sodas, Mountain Dew is a less versatile cocktail mixer than the other two bar stables and needs to be used discerningly.
With its powerful flavor and high sugar content Mountain Dew is too overpowering as a universal mixer, but there are ways to incorporate it into a cocktail successfully.
The Dew goes best with proportionately powerful ingredients like spiced rum and orange juice. Mix the Dew, melon liqueur, triple sec, and pineapple juice for a Tokyo Tea ripoff.
You could even swap Mountain Dew for the lime juice in a traditional margarita or use it in place of cola for a Long Island Iced Tea for the ages.
