Kirin's Cola Shock is shocking because it's spiked

Spiked cola. Why didn't I think of that. Oh, I did, and I drink it quite frequently. But in a can, available at your local konbini? Brilliant.
This not-so-soft drink comes from the mind of beverage giant Kirin, who thought to add about 5 percent vodka to your soda. Sure, you could buy Bacardi and some Coke and mix it yourself, but you lose the convenience. Plus, the name Cola Shock is pretty cool. And although I haven't had the pleasure of trying this yet, apparently there's a real "shock" to the taste. Some are saying that it is a strong drink, and I think they mean that in a good way.
Here's something else I like: the commercials for the beverage on Japanese television star the fist-bitingly hot actress Meisa Kuroki. See her in action in both a commercial and a live performance for the drink after the jump. Setup email comments
