Fermented Carbonated Coffee
Starbucks was looking for ways to revolutionize the coffee industry. Besides launching spacecraft crammed with coffee beans toward the sun, they were trying new and exciting products out on the general populace. One of their new products was Mazagran. Mazagran was a carbonated cold coffee beverage. It was not popular, and as such, my barista friend ended up with a four pack. It wasn't very good, and many were already prejudiced against cold coffee beverages (excluding espresso beverages, especially the then new blended espresso beverages).
A burnt tartness bubbling up to intermix both the properties of caffeine, carbonation, and alcohol.
