I have a friend who's very into the seasonal nature of, well, everything. He won't drink coffee if it's hot outside ("too hot to drink coffee"), and won't eat ice cream in winter ("Ice cream? In this weather?). He's even constitutionally incapable of being able to see a movie if it's a nice day out ("too nice out to sit in a dark movie theatre").

Are you like this, OP?

If you were brought up in the frigid north, you are probably well aware of seasonal eating. It's pretty hard for me to eat something like a cold salad when the outside temperature is -5. And do I crave a hearty pot roast when it's 99 outside? Or a bowl of nice hot soup? No.

I have to admit, I could never sit inside at a dark movie theater on a nice day--or even watch tv. I even take my laptop out on the porch on a nice day. When you've endured 6 months of dark, cold winter days, you're not usually gonna waste the few good days. (But I'll eat ice cream anytime)

Tell me what you'd rather have when it minus thirty five?
Hot soup or a salad?

I grew up in North Jersey. Cold enough. I don't crave pot roast most days. I like soup anytime. Neither is weather-related.

It never gets that cold here, but I would more than likely eat both. I really like salads, and eat them every day.

I crave salads all year around, including when its minus thirty five but I definitely crave them more when its summer. Still like stews and casseroles in the summer but cooking them makes the house too hot.

I definitely eat seasonally, although a lot of that is due to what's available, inexpensive and fresh, fruit and vegetable-wise, in stores, farmers market or my garden.

I did forget one thing I do drink more of in summer - sun tea, made with Bigelows brand spearmint tea bags.

Nothing more refreshing in the middle of a hot summer than an ice cold glass fresh iced sweet tea.

Home made lemonade served in the shade of a tree. And the big jar of lemonade with slices of lemons in it sitting on the table under the tree really looks good and makes the lemonade taste even better. It reminds me of the olden days when all us grandkids being at my grandmother's house when we were young and she'd make home made lemonade. It was super sweet, too. Not one bit sour, or even tart. It was so good.

I recently discovered how good and refreshing sparkling water with lime can be on a hot summer day.

Sometimes there is nothing more refreshing than just a plain old glass of ice water served in a cold glass.

The types of glasses those drinks are served in makes in a big difference in how refreshing a drink is. I think cold drinks served in a clear glass are or bright colorful glasses are much more refreshing than served in colored glasses that you can't see the drink.

It's not a drink, but a big slice of cold watermelon is as good a way to beat the heat as any drink.
