Iced tea I brew with boiling filtered water, half regular old Lipton's Tea bags and half Celestial Seasonings Lemon Zinger Herb Tea bags. I brew it strong in a soup pot, chill it, and serve it in tall glasses over ice cubes with mint leaves from my garden. Put sugar in it if you like. I don't care for sweet tea.

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?
Coffee (hot). No matter what the season, it is THE drink. It's the nectar of the gods. Ahhhh.

I got the tall glasses out, the plastic ones that can go outside and are tall enough for lots of ice. 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.

Water is at the top of my list. Other than that, I guess ice tea followed by white wine. I love iced coffee but never think to make it

In the summer when it's really hot, I prefer ice cold water but when I'm home relaxing with the A/C on, I enjoy home brewed iced tea or lemonade.

I like Country Time lemonade though and drink it a lot. I save 32oz Gatorade clear plastic bottles to mix up my concentrate powder in. I usually throw at least one of those in my cooler I take to work and out in my boat while fishing.
Of course the Gatorade the bottles come from, I forgot to say. But ONLY when they are 2/for $3. $1.50 each. I'm not paying full price. I can make my lemonade at home much cheaper.

This sounds so good. I'm loving the drinks with berries. Today I had my first "summer" beverage, the usual water with a squeeze of lemon and some stevia to sweeten it. Loaded with ice. Next time I may add berries.

My beverage consumption does not change with the seasons: coffee (Starbucks' Pike Place Roast); hot tea (Trader Joe's Irish Breakfast); iced tea (TJ's English Breakfast). No sweeteners, no dairy/lighteners.

But I drink filtered water more than the rest combined. All year long.

Same here. Coffee is sacrosanct, no matter what the season. And good proper English tea (I like Earl Grey) works too.

Water, either bottled or filtered or straight from the tap depending on where I am, every day. If someone offers me a soda pop or American-style iced tea or anything with fake creamers or sweeteners or flavoring agents, I decline and seriously do prefer water.

Forgot one, although its not really a summer beverage but late spring/early summer - Sima, slightly (very slightly) alcohol mead. Having a glass now, just right for this time of year.
