I thought Lemonade and Orange was "St. Clements" as in the rhyme "Oranges and Lemons, say the bells of St. Clements". says Rod

You are, of course, perfectly correct, Sir.
I nodded slightly at that point, thinking of the local St Martin's College, with whom I have been deally a lot, just recently.
They appear in the next line of the old song, claiming an unpaid debt of 1.25% of an old penny!

coke and milk is a step child of a "brown cow" Root beer and milk...

I learn to never complain about insomnia as child after once being offered a cure-- warm milk mixed and with warm stout.. -- the most vile stuff -- total undrinkable. (i think each, on there own is pretty bad-- together --ugh!)

Coke and milk
Funny you should say, "That takes the cake." There is a famous recipe, beloved of community cookbooks sold as fundraisers, for Coca Cola Cake, which is actually made with the stuff.

My son's own invention: pink lemonade mix in milk. It makes a curds-and-whey layered drink. Pretty colors, though.
