Late-night jaunt to Arctic Circle
After attending a high-school performance of Once Upon a Mattress last night in Idaho Falls, Mandi's pregnant belly craved some kind of delicious drink. The closest vendor of such thirst-quenching products was Arctic Circle, so we headed there.
Arctic Circle, for those of you back East, is a mediocre fast-food restaurant chain located mainly in Utah and Idaho. Occasionally I'll eat their food, mainly because they have fry sauce, but in general I'd rather hit Sonic or Gandolfo's.
But I remembered that Arctic Circle has a drink called the lime rickey, and that may fill my wife's craving.
Anyway, we made the five-minute drive to the restaurant and pulled up to the drive-thru. I noticed that the menu offered both a lime and cherry rickey. To the purveyor of quickly-prepared sustenance inside I made the query, "What exactly is in the cherry or lime rickey"?
