If I were the Green Lantern, I would have no idea what to do since I have never read a single line about him. Silver Surfer rides on ice roads over the city. That's awesome. Batman has an underground lair with a mansion above. That's awesome. Spiderman...Spiderman has sweet video games where you can climb to the top of the city swing all the way down and grab onto a light pole and save your own butt. I guess I'm giving superheroes credit that they deserve and kind of talked down to superheroes that I just don't know anything about.
I've recently been upset that I didn't get into graphic novels and comic books as a kid. I don't read real books and fall asleep to anything that's not a programming manual. Picture books are great. A couple lines of text and some great action and images are what an idiot like me needs. Clearly in this particular case, I needed the previous knowledge to know what I'm talking about. I don't care. I'll get there eventually.
If the Green Lantern had a drink that was made exclusively for him, this isn't a bad start. I know, it's a lot for me to say, but honestly, it's a pretty good flavor overall. The Brisk iced tea is tooth destroying. This doesn't really taste a whole lot like green tea and you actually have to take a couple sips before you can get over the high fructose corn syrup sting, but here's the thing, after about 3 or 4 sips, it's actually really good. A genuine mango taste and another taste I can only assume is dragonfruit. I'm not totally familiar enough with dragonfruit to pick out the flavor but I can tell you that "the other" flavor is good, not bad.
While all the other superheroes are having fun kicking butt, slinging webs, and doing whatever Green Lantern does, all the rest of us normal folk need to feel like a superhero. While most of us are too old for superhero underwear, this drink will have to suffice.
