Home Pop Culture Food & Drink Solo


Apparently you were unable to drink a can of Solo without first growing a Zapata moustache and then charging down a crocodile-infested waterfall in a kayak.

Having done that, you proceeded to open the can and pour half the drink down your chin. Still . . . you probably would spill some after an exploit like that (not to mention the brown stains that would take months to get out).

This Australian soft drink (manufactured by Schweppes Australia) was launched in 1968. It tasted of bitter lemon and quenched a tough-guy’s thirst . . . .

Schweppes marketed the drink in the US (where it was again positioned as a highly masculine drink) as Rondo.
