Favorite drinks to cool off

Water and iced tea for me.  Also like Crystal Light Lemonade and Lime or a generic equivalent.  Love sodas but trying to cut down.

I picked Iced Coffee and Iced Tea.

I try to drink plenty of water, but I don't enjoy it like the coffee and tea.

Sodastream ginger beer, water. A gin rickey is nice too. Just gin, soda water, lime and sugar syrup.

I chose water (with fresh lemon or lime juice!) and iced coffee. I don't know if figuring out how to make awesome iced coffee with my Keurig was a blessing or a curse.  :D

Water.  I don't like sweet drinks and also, a lot of stuff dry out my tongue.

Unsweetened iced tea is what i would drink, but something I love is unsweetened mineral water mixed about half and half with hot and spicy V8 juice and a twist of lime, over ice. 
I've never knitted anything I could recognize when it was finished.  Actually, I've never finished anything, much to my family's relief.

Water and Other (cold milk) for me. I don't like soft drinks, coffee, tea or beer.

Iced tea.  The kind we make has no sweetener and it's fairly strong.  We find it 'cuts the fuzz' better than plain ice water. 

We also like a shandy.  We make it with half lager beer and half lemonade.  The beer cuts the sweetness of the lemonade and the lemonade reduces the gassiness of the beer.

Anything not sweet, so water, unsweetened tea, and any kind of flavored seltzer. Alcoholic - nothing better than a G&T with lots of lime.  Every now and then I get a craving for a diet coke, but I don't drink much soda, and diet ones sometimes give me a headache. but every now and then i break down.

I also find club soda with a lime twist to be refreshing.

I drink gallons of Classic Coke all year round.  I know all that soda isn't good for me, but I don't drink alcohol, and I love it too much to give it up!  In the summer, I will switch off with unsweetened iced tea, preferably sun tea, with or without lemon.  When it's super hot, I also like Gatorade and Powerade.  Lately, I have been trying to drink more plain water, but I really can't handle very much of it.  For some reason, it upsets my stomach.  (Weird, I know!)

We always have in the fridge a pitcher of water with a sliced up lemon floating in it. No sugar or anything--just water and lemon. Heavenly on a hot day.

Ginger tea helps me cool down pretty well. So does watermelon juice, but that's kind of a luxury that isn't eaten often.
