This drink is very popular in Germany but can also be found in Switzerland and Austria. They typically do not use ice in any of their beverages. I have loved this since I was a child. In Germany, Coca-Cola sells Spezi in cans called Mezzo-Mix.

Nice try, but this doesn't fly. German fanta and American fanta are completely different beverages. German fanta is basically carbonated orange juice while American fanta is disgusting cheeto-colored fizz. German orange soda is difficult to find in the US so I was hoping this recipe would have a work around... Obviously, I was wrong. This is not spezi. This is kind of gross.

I wish I could go back in time to the moment the camp councler gave me a 'look' when I asked for half coke half orange...I had no idea this was something 'real.'

Fun and tasty drink! Made as directed and served cold but without ice as you suggested. I used diet coke and orange soda with good results. Different and refreshing - thanks for sharing the recipe!
