My translation at that point was definitely affected by the fact that I couldn't easily figure out what Weinschorle was. :P

I guess I didn't read far enough, because I did try to figure it out with your first link.

For whatever it's worth, I didn't know what a Schorle (or a Weinschorle, for that matter) was until I looked it up, either. :)

I think it may be the only German word my American colleagues actually learnt while we had a conference in Germany. They didn't know it before, but at the end of the week, a lot of them ordered their "apple schorle". :D (Which is a very popular thing here if you want a non-alcoholic drink, but not just water.)

Would you really consider red wine with cola a kind of Schorle? I suppose I could see how it technically qualifies, but it's so different in appearance and taste that I consider it its own thing. (It's a very common cocktail in Spain, where it's called calimocho, and other Spanish-speaking countries.)

I'd consider it a Schorle "im weiteren Sinne". But if I really would talk about a drink like that any day to anyone, I'd rather describe it. Because as you said, even if it technically qualifies, it maybe isn't "the usual everyday Schorle".

Did/do they speak German?

No, they don't (apart from a few words like "danke", of course).

I still have a few C-Übungen to complete, but I'm still going to move on to the next Kapitel. I might try to complete the last few exercises in Kapitel 4, but regardless, I'm moving on.
