A ghetto sprite is a recipe for a drink that is similar to a sprite but will cost nothing (with free refills) at the restaurant. If you cannot order a Sprite due to low funds or simply you are a cheap ass. Then a GHETTO SPRITE will suffice. A Ghetto SPrite is a glass of Ice water with a lemon. It may be the closest thing to a actual soft drink, but without the cost..
What would you like to drink??....Customer A: a Iced Tea,... Customer B: a Diet Coke... Customer Three... A Ice water with lemon.... (aka a GHETTO SPRITE.).. This third customer is not going to tip you very well.
