Why not make a 1 gal and just pour a can or two of the Dew in it after its done. If the "mead" is fermented dry, there might be enough sodium benzoate it to keep the extra sugar ur adding to it from fermenting any further. Then you will have all the Dew flavor.

I want to try to make it using the mead from so the flavor is straight i don't want to make some mead then add mountain dew I would think it would be noticeable to taste both drinks as for I am going for one flavor if you know what I mean

Right: backsweetening with Dew.

I like the idea of letting bees make honey from Mountain Dew syrup.
