: : Can anyone give me the recipe for this: "Many years ago I traveled to London and the hotel restaurant had this drink called 'The Swamp' and it had Coca Cola in it but I don't know what else. It was the best and oh, it was non-alcoholic."

: : I'm over making trouble on another site -- the official Trading Spaces bulletin boards. Any thread that's not "on topic" is shut down. No idle chatter about raising children or reading books or anything. Somebody ask for a drink recipe and was shut down. Oh, and there's this cuss word blocker that doesn't work too well. It allows p*ssed but not sophomore as in college sophomore. I'm going to hang around a day or two just to be a pain.

: The site below has recipes for every cocktail that I've ever heard of, plus several hundred I haven't. There are three recipes for "Swamp Water", but everything seems to be alcoholic. I'll keep looking.

'The Swamp', which you were lucky enough to get in it's original non-alcoholic form, was very popular amongst the teetotallers of late Victorian society but fell out of favour following the decision of Coca-Cola, in 1903, to use only 'spent' coca leaves in the recipe thereby removing the cocaine to which many of the 'The Swamp' consumers had become addicted.
