US Rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez sampled a can of the uniquely Scottish beverage Irn-Bru while in Glasgow for COP26 on November 10.

Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon was pictured handing a can to Ocasio-Cortez on Wednesday.

“This tastes just like a Puerto Rican soda,” Ocasio-Cortez says in this video, referencing Kola Champagne. “Count me in. I love it.”

After further tasting, Ocasio-Cortez posted on Instagram saying that while the drink wasn’t exactly the same as Kola Champagne, it was in a “similar family of flavor”.

“I was so shocked at having something in Glasgow that tasted like home. However, Irn Bru is also very unique on its own. It’s got pizazz. I like it! Will bring some cans home to NY for sure!” Ocasio-Cortez said. Credit: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez via Storyful
