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

From the OED:

spider, n. 4. Austr. slang. A drink consisting of lemonade and brandy or similar ingredients, mixed; a soft drink with ice-cream floating in it.

From the quotations following:

1859 K. CORNWALLIS New World I. 300 Shandy-gaff, or spiders -- the latter to clear their throats of flies as they said.
