What are you eating and/or drinking to adapt to your weather?

102 F here. Today it's at least one cup of water before each glass of soda (My personal rule). To keep cool it's homemade guacamole & chips, taco salad, & ice cream - LOTS of ICE cream. Tomorrow there might be some thing icy ending in Rita. TBA...
So what are you all doing to conquer your weather unpleasantness?

Water, water, water. Keeping sodas at a minimum. I just finished a cider vinegar beverage, diluted and with a little honey to help quench my thirst. Lots of crushed ice and more water.

For the dog days of summer, I switch from Crown Royal ont the rocks to either Tanq and tonic or pineapple juice with coconut rum.

Trying to cut back as much as possible on caloric intake, drinking more iced tea, and seltzer.

Since I have to watch my fluid intake I'm spending as much time as possible in the pool.
