Coca-Cola will be adding a bit of a kick to
its lineup by producing an alcoholic drink for the first time in its 125-year history. The firm wants to tap into Japan’s growing
taste for “Chu-Hi” – a canned alcopop-style drink made up of distilled Japanese beverage
shochu, sparkling water and flavoring. “Chu-Hi” is the abbreviation for shochu highball,
which typically has alcohol content from three to eight percent. Coca-Cola said it probably won’t sell its
new alcoholic drink outside of Japan.
