When I asked the waiter at Ted's Montana Grill if the cherry and vanilla Cokes were from the fountain, he answered apologetically that no, the bartender used grenadine and vanilla syrup to flavor them. Apparently, he must have thought I was hoping for a pre-fabbed specialty Coke mix, but on the contrary, I was delighted to find old-school sodas being mixed by hand. My cherry Coke arrived with the crimson syrup drizzling slowly through the pellet ice toward the bottom, like a PG-13 tequila sunset. Sipped through one of Ted's biodegradable paper straws, which are big enough to let through an occasional chip of crumbly ice, it was worth the sugar splurge.
