e.g. I have a soda to recommend.
( What is 'soda'?
Are both Coke and Cola a soda?
Is 'soda' different from 'soda water' or 'soda pup'?)
A soda is any carbonated beverage. It could be a cola, a Coke, soda pop, or soda water. In some parts of the U.S. it's called a "soda," while in other parts it's called "pop."
