$1.83 paper–wrapped straw
This diet–friendly reinvention of the classic virgin rum and Coke is surprisingly easy to prepare. Add $1.83 to your McDonald’s cashier’s hand, ask for a medium diet Coke and let sit for about 28 seconds, until the diet Coke appears. Carefully peel off paper and insert one end of the straw into the cup. Apply negative pressure with your mouth to the other end, and enjoy.
