“What’s the Earth’s favorite fizzy drink?"/"Tectonic water.”

"Tectonic water” is a joke on “tonic water.” “Tectonics don’t help a hangover. Tectonic water is for scientists or computer people ... or something” was posted on Twitter by planetross on August 14, 2009. “I had an earth moving cocktail the other day it was made with gin and lime and tectonic water” was posted on Twitter by Lancelot Supersad Jr on September 28, 2013.

A riddle was posted on Reddit—Dadjokes on July 26, 2019:

Q: What’s the Earth’s favorite fizzy drink?
A: Tectonic water.



Wikipedia: Plate tectonics
Plate tectonics (from the Late Latin tectonicus, from the Greek: τεκτονικός “pertaining to building") is a scientific theory describing the large-scale motion of seven large plates and the movements of a larger number of smaller plates of the Earth’s lithosphere, since tectonic processes began on Earth between 3 and 3.5 billion years ago. The model builds on the concept of continental drift, an idea developed during the first decades of the 20th century.

Replying to @Surviving_Mars
I would call it “1.013 Bar” and the signature drink would be “MarSoda”. We would also serve “Non tecTonic water”.
