What drinks are kosher in Argentina, Coca-Cola Pepsi sprite.....?
How much more do you want? I don't think Argentina is any different than most other countries.

The reason I asked as I recall from  a trip to Ukraine that Coke was a problem, so I took from there that not all Coke Pepsi are good, am I wrong?

This tastes very similar to one of the Clear Choice flavors.
Will try to nail down.

True, but it's expected to be extended to match the US adding Argentina back to the Visa Waiver Program in 2017.

Please be more specific. Where's the wedding? How long do you want to go for? Where do you want to go (tropical or tundra) in Argentina? What do you like doing?

With 2-3 days just stay in the BsAs area (especially if you're including the days you arrive and depart). You won't have time for Iguazu.
