Unsweetened Iced Tea

I think the classic is Coke, but I'm not into that very much. I love chocolate milk, but I don't think it goes as good with a burger as much as a good soft drink.

#4 Edited by BiffMcBlumpkin (3720 posts) -

I dig chocolate milk with anything that isn't citrusy, in my world it goes good with almost everything. You wouldn't last a day in my world.

Grape Soda

Orange soda shits on grape soda seven days a week and on Christmas.

7-up was the first thing that came into my mind when I saw the topic title.

#8 Posted by BeerBelly (24 posts) -

I agree with systech, cold classic cola served in a glass bottle is the best way to enjoy a tasty burger.

#9 Posted by DJ_Lae (629 posts) -

Coke in a frosted glass goes well with almost any kind of burger - juice goes better with the lighter meats like chicken and salmon, but Coke would work in a pinch too.

A nice light ale or a clear, ice cold wheat brew would be better, though.

#10 Posted by Vaxadrin (2297 posts) -

What about a nice glass of a ketchup & mayo mix?  You could dip the burger in it and drink it when you're done to wash it down.

#11 Posted by John (828 posts) -

Pepsi/Coke works just fine for me.

#12 Posted by Manks (836 posts) -

Coke, Root Beer, any kind of milkshake.

SoBe Green Tea is my shit

#14 Posted by Systech (4078 posts) -

I think that it's weird that no one said beer yet.

#15 Posted by DirrtyNinja (715 posts) -
Beer.

He said not including beer.

That said IBC Root Beer in a bottle or frosted mug.

Vanilla milkshake, imo.

Ive actually never eaten a hamburger without some regular fizzy drink so i wouldnt know

#20 Posted by neoepoch (1295 posts) -

Cheerwine. Delicious with just about any burger.

#21 Posted by BiffMcBlumpkin (3720 posts) -

Cheerwine? That sounds like a hobbit's name.

Something like Bumblespot Cheerwine.

#22 Posted by BiggerBomb (6944 posts) -

I'm not a fan of beer with hamburgers, but a nice cold brew on a hot summer day watching a baseball game with a ballpark frank is priceless. Except if the beer is Old Style, then it sucks.

#23 Posted by BiffMcBlumpkin (3720 posts) -

I love hotdogs as much as the next guy, but Ballpark Franks are too big, just too fucking big.

I don't want the feet and head of my hotdog hanging out the ends of my bun like some gigantic weirdo sleeping on a regular sized mattress. If I wanted that much extra hotdog I'd make two hotdogs.

THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID! HEY OH!
#25 Posted by BiffMcBlumpkin (3720 posts) -

She said the second part, because she is batshit crazy.

We both know she never said the first part.

#26 Posted by Shervin (19 posts) -

I prefer coke, with my hamburgers.

seconded.
#28 Posted by toment (17 posts) -

I would say, a semi-thick strawberry milkshake. unfortunately every time I go for the hamburger-milkshake combo I can usually only get through half the burger and shake before it starts feeling like I've eaten a couple of cement bricks.

It is a Cherry soda they have in the south. Giantbomb drank some on their podcast for the drink segment. I think that was when they got to play some Nintendo games and was talking about Homestar Runner. It was before Brad and Vinny came aboard.

ice cold coca cola

#33 Posted by TheGTAvaccine (2884 posts) -

I enjoy a good root beer with my burger. Most soft drinks suffice though.

#34 Posted by Homer (1372 posts) -

Pepsi.

#35 Posted by JackiJinx (3089 posts) -

Double-thick chocolate milkshake, baby!

#36 Posted by Shawn (3825 posts) -

Root Beer for me.

#37 Posted by Red (5994 posts) -

Fool, ROOT BEER is the superior drink. If not that then get a Vanilla or Reese's flavored Milkshake.

Coke.

A nice cold beer is the only thing that should ever be drunk with a burger.

Either A&W Root Beer or a real thick chocolate milkshake.

#43 Posted by FengShuiGod (1485 posts) -

Sprite FTW.

#44 Posted by Fax (534 posts) -

Coke.

#45 Posted by John1912 (1859 posts) -

Id go with beer, Barq's root beer, coke, or maybe a properly mixed Long Island Ice Tea.  Any will do.

#46 Posted by Erik (386 posts) -

Coke. Or Mountain Dew.

I myself prefer a nice glass of Root Beer with a burger, though Chocolate Milk does sound delicious.

#49 Posted by Derios (423 posts) -

If not beer then definitely water.

#50 Posted by clovy (157 posts) -

I like Root Beer.
