On Metafilter, Deathalicious rounds up links to some of the more interesting drinks mentioned in twovideos by YouTube user 513755, explaining the various uniquely regional Russian and ex-Soviet soft-drinks.
A few of the drinks mentioned, with tasting notes:
Kvass - a strong sweet/sour beverage, with a definite flavor of rye bread.

Baikal - tastes like a forest. Really. Strong evergreen and pine sap notes.
