Orbitz was a drink introduced in 1996. It didn’t take and disappeared from the shelves soon thereafter. I swear I’ve never seen one in real life. Now take a good look at the bottle on the left, then read the below snippet from my unfinished SF romance masterpiece:
On the further side of the terrace, a table had been set up for him, under a gazebo tent, with flowers and plates of canapes that were more structurally complex than most sentient creatures. He filled two glasses from a pitcher of spright-of-day, a clear libation with suspended, pearl-sized bubbles of sunfruit juice. He took one glass in hand and drank out of it. The other one he left on the white tablecloth.
She was paralyzed, her dolce-dimmed mind failing to interpret his intentions.
He glanced at her. He seemed amused. “Would you prefer something stronger? I have wine and”—he picked up the placard next to a carafe of purple-black tipple and read—“ ‘Guaranteed Good Time. Our version of this classic party favorite is made with premium black vodka, triple distilled sweetwater brandy, lilyplum tonic, and pompear fizz.’”
She approached the table and drank from the glass of spright-of-day. A bubble of golden sunfruit juice burst on her tongue, sharp and bright.
Wouldn’t you know? They are drinking Orbitz! The future has truly already come and gone. 🙂
