Hardly, fortified wine is mixing a wine with a spirit. Mountain dew is fizzy orange juice with natural flavourings and caffeine. I would put that into the same catergory as a higghly unnatural JOAM type affair, which would certainly be a mead. Not a traditional, but a mead none the less.

at least buy some mountain dew throwback so you've got sugar in there instead of HFCS

throwback is the pepsi term for their products that are made with sugar instead of hfcs.

the dew experiment has been done before;

Yes, it would if the bees could be persuaded to use it, but at that point your stretching the definition of honey a bit...

well, we are stretching out the definition of mead a bit .. I tend to think simply using a percentage of honey as a fermentable does not a mead make as well....
