I would call it Soda, I think Pop is something out of the 50s. But in actuality, I call it by it's brand name, Coke, Pepsi, Sprite. In my mind, soda is just carbonated water that is delicious when mixed with my favorite Whiskey.
I used to call it soda, but now I call it "sugar water." That's what they used to call it even before my time (which goes way, way back.)
