I drink sweet iced tea every day but my favorite summer drink is homemade lemonade. Of course, I always like a real milkshake and I drink more water during the summer since I do a lot of exercise outdoors in the summer. When in SXM, my favorite is a guavaberry colada and we only seem to go there in the summer.

My dad used to make sweet tea in the summer, it was never my favorite but it became a symbol of home and downtime with the family. So, sweet tea brings sweet memories.

I eat clean all year-round, with few exceptions, but there are one or two sugary drink recipes I like to make as a treat. One is a raspberry limeade recipe that I got from the Neely's on the Food Network, and the other is sparkling French lemonade.

Never been a fan of "heavy" beverages like milkshakes. A fruity smoothie can be refreshing after a workout, though.

I drink Classic Coke all year long (I'm addicted). Sometimes in the summer I'll make a pitcher of sweet tea.

I do find that when I go to fast-food places in the summer, I usually grab the sweet tea.

I will drink water with a squirt of lemon, some sugar or stevia and a lot of ice cubes all summer long.

I used to use frozen lemonade but I went through it too fast and anyway, when I thought of how much sugar it contained and how much of it I was drinking, I figured I might as well just make my own.

What do you drink? (not counting alcoholic) Iced tea? Iced coffee? Sweet tea? Soda? Smoothies?Something else?
Is there something that you make yourself? Or do you buy it pre-made?
lolwut?

I drink the same beverages year round. I'm not a coffee drinker, so I get my caffeine jolt from a lot of unsweetened iced tea all year. Sure, I question my choice a little bit when it's 10 below and I'm lugging a big cup with ice in it, but whatever. It works for me.

I also drink a lot of water, and Chardonnay is my alcoholic beverage of choice year round.

Though, hmm. Come to think of it, I'm more likely to have a margarita in the summer. I don't drink many of those per year, but when I do, it's almost always hot outside. I never realized that before!
