Colbert bantered, “We have the Tom Collins, we have the Tom Hanks”. During their interview, Colbert and Hanks enjoyed this alcoholic drink. They opened a can of Diet Coke, poured it over ice, and then busted open a bottle of Champagne to follow on top.  

Like the others, Colbert also appreciated the beverage. He stated the beverage is “strangely, strikingly, shamefully good.” Hanks said he doesn’t drink much but will occasionally sip on a Diet Coke due to Type 2 Diabetes. 

What simpler solution than to simply spritz the glass with some bubbly? Haha. This two- ingredient drink is popping off the charts! There may be other choices like it, but Hanks followed through with yet another masterpiece.  

This creation is simple and is not too costly. A 2-liter of Diet Coke and bottle of La Marca Prosecco is under $30! Click here for more great, cheap champagne options.
