As a noun in apposition, that would be fine (i.e. naming it after the drink), but as an adjective it would have to be pepsicolaris (or pepsicolare if genus is neuter), which loses something of the effervescence of the name!

I've always wanted to name a species with the epithet pepsicola, 
dwelling in soft drink bottles.
