in thread I refer to a non-specified carbonated beverage as a:

I'd usually interpret "cold drink" as a beer, but I wouldn't be suprised if you handed me a soft drink. Actually, if you made any reference to a drink that I didn't understand, I'd interpret it as a beer.

Saying 'pop' in Canberra will get ridicule rather than a drink, and I always think of 'soda' as 'soda water' - carbonated water.

    Yeah jepri, I agree about the soda water. IIRC the alcoholic Police Captain in Hill Street Blues way back used to drink soda water with his girlfriend (Veronica Hamil - can't remember his name) and he'd order a "club soda".
