The Fourth Doctor drank ginger pop after arriving on a facsimile of Earth. He offered some to Sarah Jane Smith, but she disliked it. Later, he offered the beverage to Sarah's android double, who drank it without question. This was one of the ways in which the Doctor was able to discern that this was a fake Sarah, and indeed a fake Earth. (TV: The Android Invasion)

(AUDIO: The Eternal Summer) When he again ordered it in the same pub in the 45th century, he stated that his drink had been long flat. (AUDIO: Plague of the Daleks)
