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

In Afrikaans (South Africa again!), which derives largely from Dutch, "vris" means "strong" or "vigorous"

So if an Afrikaaner (my wife) asked me for a "vris drankie" (drank = drink) I'd give her alcohol!

Go figure!

PS. She wouldn't ask, because we're both teetotal.
