Today, Coca-Cola Japan puts a new kind of hot Canada Dry ginger-ale for sale in its vending machines. The drink is meant to appeal to people who enjoy traditional Japanese hot ginger drinks, and is mixed with apple and cinnamon.
However, we have not had hot canned carbonated drinks before, and Coca-Cola Japan thought that because Japan has traditional hot drinks using ginger and spices and people love them, why not hot Canada Dry Ginger Ale?
They spent 4 years to develop the world's first hot canned carbonated beverage - Canada Dry Hot Ginger Ale - and it will be released on October 21.
Regarding the flavor, some apple and cinnamon flavors were added to the regular ginger ale. It gives a more delicate feeling to the flavor.

I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
