Was it Mountain Dew by any chance?  My DH has left half drinken cans of Mountain Dew around the house couple of times and both times, ants just swarm that thing like a damn ant hill LOL.  That's really gross though, the very least legal action is filing an unsanitary case againt them.

It was Dr. Pepper from their fountain drink.

did you ever put your drink down on a counter or table somewhere? are you sure that the ants didn't get into your drink from when you put in down somewhere?

Ants do not swim well. If they had been in your drink for more that a few seconds they would not have been "live ants".

You tossed out your drink, you have no proof (two biased witnesses do not count), you have talked to a number of lawyers who have all told you the same thing - you have no case.

If you had taken your partially finished soda, with ants, back to the cafe, and spoken to the manager, or better yet, the owner, you might have received something, and also prevented others from ingesting ants. However, you did not.

As gross as it was to drink ants, most ants are perfectly safe to eat.

Get over it, and move on.
