fizzy lemonade with syrup

Diabolo Menthe à Montmartre

The diablo appeared around the early 20th century: fizzy lemonade mixed with sirop. One of the most popular is the addition of a garish green cordial to make a diablo menthe, or peppermint soda... which is also the English name of the autobiographical film, Diablo Menthe (1977) directed by Diane Kurys.
