Official State Beverage

I was just reading a brochure on Delaware that listed "Milk" as the Official State Beverage. How dull!

I Googled "State Beverage" and found out that 27 states have an OSB, and that 17 of them are milk! How dull! (or dairy lobbyism?)

On the other hand, 10 of them have something more unique. And 23 need one.

Do you care to guess and/or suggest?

    Hawaii would most likely be beer with Budweiser heading up the list.

    I know the State spirit for Alabama. It's Conecuh Ridge Whiskey from the May's family.

    The law states that it was bestowed this honor because of independance, family pride, innovation and using Alabama spring water.

    The elder Mr. May was a bootlegger :-)

    All this political descension and back biting [this is an interesting term; ever seen to cats...never mind] over State Drinks . I belive we should all come together under one goal and that is the MARTINI!! Except those recent forum contributor housed in some "treatment center". They are restricted to no pulp,lite OJ.

    B. Babe; Dearfolk,
    I'd never heard of this until just now. When I venture over to Alabama, I'll just have to buy me a small bottle of it and try it out. (Fortunately, Georgia allows importation of a personal quantity of out-of-state spirits legally.) I'm not a big whiskey drinker, but this seems like it would be worth trying once.
    Now: how does one pronounce "Conecuh", anyway? I've heard 5 or 6 different attempts at it.
    That's about like trying to say Lake Istokpoga, Florida correctly... or Lake Palakliklaha.

    Dearfolk,
    Don't any of you say that the Official Florida State Beverage is Florida Water! (In reality, it might well be sulfur water, though. The tap water at our old family homeplace in Hardee County had a strong taste of iron [and not just from the pipes] and was very sweet... boy howdy, were we lucky!)

    I'll try to assist here, if only a tad's worth.

    Cranberry Juice - MA or MI
    That might also be New Jersey... remember cranberries are grown in profusion in areas of The Pine Barrens.

    Coffee Milk - RI (is there any where else they even drink this?)
    I'd drink it in a heartbeat if I could only find sugar-free coffee syrup! My experience in finding this was in a supermarket in Waterbury, Connecticut. Why it never made it out of that area is a mystery to me.

    Local grown tea - ??
    This would be South Carolina, where the tea industry, dormant since something like Colonial times, is making quite a comeback in the Low Country. Along with Carolina Golden Rice, it is something that never should have been let die out... indigo, on the other hand, is quite another story (excepting The Indigo Girls!).

    That's all the help I can offer at the moment.

    P. S. Dadgummit, I didn't format that correctly!

    Wow, I NEVER would have guessed the tomato and water ones! I wonder why that one is water? Is it particularly good there? I don't recall.

    Tony, right! But I thought of a few should-be's:

    Washington State: Coffee
    New Jersey: Blueberry Juice (?)
    Kentucky: Bourbon
    Louisiana: Hurricanes (the drink...)
    New York: Long Island Iced Tea, Grape Juice
    Arizona/New Mexico: Agua Fresca
    California: Smoothies
    Hawaii: Pineapple juice
    Alaska: Ice water!

    Slurpees?

    According to the website, the "official" beverage in NY State is milk. Fine.

    But...

    Speaking for New York's North Country (the REAL NY)our official drink used to be Genesee, but in recent years that largely has been displaced by none other than Mountain Dew.

    NYNM,
    Your suggestions here are superb, and thanks for them.
    Dadgummit, I blew it back aways when I mentioned cranberries as from New Jersey's Pine Barrens. I was thinking of Miss Ellen White of the White family that gave us Beautiful Downtown Whitesbog, N. J. (only a flea sneeze from metropolitan-but-not-very Double Trouble)... she virtually created the cultivated blueberry from several varieties of wild ones she found in the Barrens.
    Where wuz what's left of my mind... shopping downtown Ong's Hat?!?!?!? (Great Zorch, I don't need a hat....)

    Bushie; Dearfolk,
    Other flagrant Texas possibilities could include Shiner Beer (the only long-established beer still made in Texas by Texans, or so I am told), Dr. Pepper (which started in Virginia but blossomed in Waco), and -- my favorite of all -- Seaport Dark Roast Coffee from Beaumont.
    Texas is big enough and diverse enough to include several official state beverages.

    Wally; Dearfolk,
    I would have substituted Utica Club Beer for Genesee Cream Ale because I can buy Genny Cream here in Georgia (as well as Iron City), but having a U. C. here is only a dream. (We do have Saranac on our shelves, though.)
    "It Would Be U. C. For Me," says Ort., singing the Utica Club Natural Carbonation Song (I have the 45!), "but we don't have that here." Guess I'll have to take a swig of Ron Salamedia's (sp.?) Spiede Sauce instead.

    Don; Dearfolk,
    Add what you want to it, but that orange juice had better be fresh squoze!
    Years ago, when a customer at Senterfitt's Restaurant on South 6th. Avenue in Wauchula ordered up a glass of orange juice in season, the waitress would literally go out in the back of the place, pick an orange off a tree, and squeeze it within plain view. "Ain't no powdered nothing 'round here," she quipped.

    Like many volunteer fire departments locally, mine used to allow beer in the fire stations. The guy who was elected fire chief after I gave it up (he served only one year-1994 I think) used to love warm Genny Lite. Genny Lite was bad enough, but warm ugh!


    UC was considered akin to somethin a person might find in or around a septic tank!

    Cavandre,
    How about White Rock or Cliquot Club Club Soda and/or Tonic Water? Or, better yet, Dr. Brown's Cel-Ray(R) Soda! (Hey, I love that stuff!) Or, even better, how about that ubiquity-in-New-York, the egg cream?!?!?!?
