It sounds like Red Lobster has given up all pretensions of being an upscale restaurant, and finally accepted that they're just a redneck beachfront fish shack that got lost and drifted inland.

Red Lobster and PepsiCo innovation teams are also working together to leverage iconic PepsiCo brands across the Frito-Lay and Quaker range of products to co-create tasty menu items.

Get ready for Frito-stuffed lobster tails, potato chip crumble crawdads, and the Extreme Pepsi Shrimp Challenge. Guy Fieri's restaurants are about to be challenged for the recycled hubcap throne of hillbilly cuisine.

Lower calorie version? Of an alcoholic Mountain Dew drink?

The only way you get that is by just licking the picture.

A woman who's somewhat well-known in Florida Politics drinks tequila and Mountain Dew all the time.  Calls it a redneck margarita.  She offered me one once and I poured it into a planter when she went to the restroom.  Disgusting.

/She's a Democrat for all your partisan warriors out there.  So either she's an exception to an otherwise pristine political ideology or proof that liberals hate baby Jesus.

That's basically a paloma.  Add a little salt, maybe a splash of real grapefruit juice and you're good to go.

So, does this mean that Red Lobster is switching away from Coke products in their restaurants?  If so, yet another place that I will no longer be going to because they will not have anything drinkable for a non alcoholic beverage.

/Pepsi products, especially the diet beverages, (with the exception of Mountain Dew Zero) taste like sweetened swamp water.
//Yes I have tasted swamp water.

In this day and age we should can it, douse it with caffeine and sell it in red white and blue cans as drained swamp!

Well, MD was originally created as a flavoring additive for moonshine, so the theory is sound.

"But does it WORK?" is the real question.

Mountain Dew was originally created as a mixer for bourbon, and is surprisingly fantastic in that regard...I imagine it might also be good in this drink.

shouldn't they at least be distilling the vaguely-pretend-alcohol-thing directly from mountain dew as well? (wait, can you even run a still on hfcs?)

Damn, I remember the crew of the dive boat I was on down in Mexico when I was in 6th grade or so tried to give me some of those. For some reason my dad said I couldn't have it. Goddamnit dad! RIP dad...

Every political party is subject to cultural influence. Local or otherwise. I'm a liberal in the south, and I'll eat the hell out of some crawdad's.

How is this surprising for Pepsico? My uncle is head of distribution for this area. Don't get shocked if they have a Mt. Dew flamin hot  cheese burger with BK.

Yeast will eat it. It ferments. The ferment can be distilled

People were talking about this on a newsfroup 15ish years ago and it went like so:

0. A word of advice should you choose to try: Don't.
1. Two more words, if you do anyway: Champagne yeast.

Oh, I wouldn't say it's a GOOD idea, just that you can get distillable alcohol. I'd use DADY and a reflux still to make sure none of the flavor of the MD got into the final product.
