When tipping one back in Montana, you may expect it to be a beverage that involves one of the staples of our state.  That of course would be in reference to either of the following:

  1. Barley
  2. Huckleberry

Perhaps, depending on on the area of Big Sky country you are in, that very well may be true.

But it would also be wrong.

What Is Montana Downing in Order to Keep Cool or For Enjoyment?

Well, you could satiate that dry mouth with what is considered the "signature" drink of Montana.  That would be a simple whiskey ditch.  Whiskey, smothered in a drop of water is how we prefer it.

But, according to the folks at Google, that really isn't what we are downing in order to quench the thirst.

That would be soda.  Or maybe pop.  Or maybe even a cola.  Heck, it may even be a combination of those.  Regardless, Montana folk are all about that sugary goodness.

According to the analytics, we enjoy Pepsi the most across the state.  But how does that compare to the rest of the US?
