Alcohol by volume (ABV) says, how much alcohol (ethanol) is in given volume of alcoholic beverage. If the drink is served with the ice cubes (On the rock), then it's displayed a range. Lowest value is for slow drinker (all ice is dissolved). Based on ABV value there are three color coded categories of drinks: 0 (green), 1-20 (orange) and more then 20 (red)
In any recipe you can meet with the value CRP (ColaRelativePrice). This number represents the price of the drink in comparsion to the price of 0,5 liter bottle of Coca Cola.
