By now you probably have heard about the weirdness of the Coca-Cola Co. bottle.
It looks like a bunch of coke.
It has no taste.
It’s really hard to drink.
And it tastes bad.
What’s more, the bottle looks like something a little more exotic: a coke can.
In fact, the Mexican Coke Co. has just released a new bottle, dubbed the Tres de Amigos de Amiga, a sort of cross between a Mexican Coke can and a Canoe.
The idea for the Tregañeros de Amigeas came to Carlos Hernandez in the middle of a trip to the beach with his girlfriend.
Hernandez had just bought his first can of cockabills from a friend.
They had just gotten back from a trip into Mexico City.
“We were on a beach with my friend and his girlfriend,” Hernandez says.
“He brought them back to our hotel.
He had no idea what he was going to get.”
So, the next day, Hernandez bought a can of Coca-colas and began pouring them into the bottle.
“I had never seen the can before,” Hernandez explains.
“So I just poured a can into it.
And I poured it down into my girlfriend’s mouth.
And she swallowed a Coke.
She was really surprised.”
Hernandez says the can was so different from any Coke bottle he had ever seen before that he couldn’t figure out what to do with it.
He decided to try to figure out how to make it better.
He poured it into a bowl of ice and added some water.
“The ice started to solidify, and the water started to melt,” Hernandez recalls.
“It became a real drinkable liquid.”
Then he poured the ice into a container.
He filled it with water and let it sit.
“Then I poured the liquid in my glass of Coke,” he explains.
Hernandez’s new can turned out to be the perfect size, because it contained only water.
The can became an ice-maker.
The Coke bottles that Hernandez bought were so small that they were difficult to get to grips with.
So he made them bigger and thicker.
They were also very hard to keep clean.
“One day we decided to just make a glass bottle of Coke, and I said, ‘Why don’t I just make one of these bottles?'” he recalls.
Hernandez started by making a can out of a piece of plywood and putting it on top of a can.
The plywood had holes drilled into it, and it was made out of scrap aluminum.
Then he cut out the holes, and he poured water into each hole.
Hernandez then poured water inside each hole, then poured the water out.
Then Hernandez took a can and poured water on top, then he poured on a little bit of soda.
“That made a really nice smooth glass,” he says.
Then, he filled each hole with a little of the water and the soda, and then he put the can on top.
“And it was good,” he laughs.
“Now, I’ve made one of those.”
Hernandez has also created a can that he’s been using to create ice-making ice.
It weighs about 1.5 pounds, and each can is about the size of a medium can.
When you pour a Coke into a can, the can will expand slightly, so you’ll want to make sure that it doesn’t overflow.
Hernandez is currently working on a can with a can-shaped tip that is 1.25 inches in diameter and 0.5 inches thick, and that will be available later this year.
Hernandez says that one of the things he really liked about making Coke was that he could just fill it up with water from a can instead of having to buy a whole can of Coke.
“When you have a can in your pocket and you’re going to do something, you want to be able to just fill up that can, and just do it with the can,” Hernandez explained.
“There’s no need to go to the store.”
