That can also be a euphemism for "alcohol makes the meds more fun".

This is a nice thirst quencher when you are outside working on a hot day and the sun has not yet set over they yardarm--

Glass of Ice water. One slice of cucumber. Allow to steep about 10 minutes, and top with more ice. Totally refreshing.

Beyond that, I go through phases.

These include good scotch, bourbons, tequilas, cognac. Can run the gamut.

Since a trip to Italy last fall, I've been into Negroni's.
The sugar in a Negroni made with Campari and red vermouth can make one quite tipsy.
Or maybe it's the coloring made from beetles?

Even when combined with "low test" Gordon's gin.

I don't think it's the sugar. Or the beetles.

My favorite summer thirst quencher is:
1/2 Watermelon, juiced
2 Lemons, juiced
Combine and pour over ice. MMmmmmm....

Also occasional wine, red or white.
Occasional Patron Tequila on the rocks when out with friends.

Wine. Mostly red, though an occasional white or sparkling wine hits the spot, too.

I also enjoy a nice cold beer from time to time.

Outside of that, I drink water or tea.
