Limeade and blackcurrant juice. Ribena is okay, but I like the really expensive juice from the kosher market. I water it down so I can afford it!

Ribena. Excellent with ice but it seems very sweet. Very good but maybe not too good for you--not in the amounts I drink anyway. I can polish off a bottle of Ribena in a day or two, even watered down.

I love Ribena mixed with Perrier - that makes a wonderful rich soda.

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.
A cold slice of watermelon is almost a drink, isn't it?

When it's hot, I like water, water with a lot of lemon--I eat the lemon slices-- and weak-ish unsweetened iced teal with a lot of lemon. I think that there a theme here. Sometimes, when it's very hot outside, I'll drink white wine with a lot of ice and perhaps a slice of lemon. The citrus growers aren't going out of business on my watch.

I love, love and icy cold beer after working outside in the heat. Ahhh! I'm pretty thin, so I probably need the calories as much as the fluid.

Iced tea with lemon, no sweetener. Lots of ice.

On the over-21 end of things, summer = shandy. My favorite is a microbrew from a brewpub in Kansas City, and it's a ginger shandy. Since I'm away from KC this summer, I'll probably enjoy Leinenkugel's. Sam Adams makes a radler, but I don't like it as much.

Iced mocha with real fresh whipped cream (not the spray on).

My grandmother used to make iced tea in the summer by letting it steep in a mason jar outside in the sun. Yum.

I also love making smoothies in the summer. Instead of a heavy breakfast just throw some pineapple, strawberries, etc in a blender with a sprinkle of sugar, ice, and cranberry juice for tartness. It's also an awesome way to sneak my three year old to have some fruit lol

I like Dunkin Donuts iced tea and always tell them tiny bit of sugar and extra extra lemons. You would think lemons were diamonds with how stingy they are. I love like six lemons but its like pulling teeth to get them to give that many up.

The weather has nothing to do with when I eat or drink something. I don't restrict myself like that. And I live in areas with extreme climates on both ends of the spectrum.
