It's just about time to switch to hot weather drinks. Well, where I live, it's taking longer than usual but I'm starting to think about it. 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.

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?

No favorite beverage for specific times of the year, I drink coffee all the time and whatever else I feel like after that.

Sweet Tea, made with fresh spring water, poured over crystal-clear spring water ice cubes in a large Mason jar.

I almost forgot - and you must drink this while serenaded by cicadas (in the day) or katydids (at night).

Ice tea, or a nice, tart lemonade. Ice water is pretty good too.

I live in Hawaii, so I'm not waiting for warm or hot weather. I really like unsweetened iced tea, ice water with calamansi and diet coke with lots of ice. When it's time to relax with family and friends I like beer, but I don't like it too cold.

seasons, weather is quite a determinate on what alot of people drink-
we've had the doldrums of winter up here- way too long,,
hopefully spring is finally here, when it warms up, people are out in the yards, working, tending to gardens, more outdoor activities

i will drink more water, soda, ice cream shakes, iced tea, and beer...
