Home brewed ice tea slightly sweetened or ice cold well water, NOT city water.

mmmmmmmm.............I wonder what kind of deficiency that was? I went through a roughly 2-month spell of craving sushi, specifically anything with raw fish in it - it was expensive!!!! mmmmmmmmmmm........KFC coleslaw............was it the sodium?.........was it the actual cabbage?.............was it the sugar?................was it just a "comfort food" issue?..........you've got me thinking now!!!! I have eaten it at different times and some of those times being being much better than the others - like that's what I really wanted. I'm going to have to go google!

I'm firmly in the cool water camp. It really does the trick for me.

Sometimes when I'm hot and sweaty in addition to being thirsty, an ice cold beer tastes good.

Lemonade or soda. Water doesn't seem to work much for me unless it's 100 degrees outside and it must be ice cold.

I'm with Amber - ice water with a lemon wedge. No sugar, as I use the meyers from the tree - they're sweeter than a regular lemon.

Chocolate cokes from Sonic. They never fail. French cokes are good too but not as tasty.

Sadly, no Sonics here in WA. I like iced chai and a good iced minty tea is quenching as well. Every once in a while I crave good apple juice (I'm talking Odwalla type, not sugary mott's or something like that) or fresh oj.

I LOVE water so cold, it almost hurts to drink it. Lots of ice, and a little lemon or lime.

i'm an iced tea guy. i drink about a gallon every few days even in the winter.

i also like gatorade (orange or green) if i'm really dehydrated.

oddly enough, sometimes when i'm thirsty, i crave ice cold milk or oj, or silk brand chocolate soy "milk".

does anyone else like watered down drinks when they're thirsty? i like to take a bottle of iced tea, snapple or nestea for instance, and add about a third more cold water. sorta like how gatorade tastes like watered down orange drink. full strength tastes like concentrate to me. same goes for other "bug" juices.

I had Red Bull once...the flavour reminded me of cough medicine. Can't deny that most people like the flavour, however. It's even part of cocktails now.

How can we sleep while our beds are burning???
