I've found that when I really thirst, not just drinking to accompany the meal, I like cold water with ice, a slice of lemon, squeezed, and half a packet of splenda. It does the trick every time.

I also love lemon/lime seltzer, swigged right from the bottle!

What about you?
Lemon/lime seltzer swigged right from the bottle??? You're a girl after my own heart!!!!I go through a quart a day of the stuff!!

I'd definitely have to say that water is the best thirst quencher for me. Also like a nice ice cold lemonade or lemon squash.

The small wastebasket in my bedroom is always full of the empties! I keep a bottle next to the bed, too, for middle of the night thirst. Happy New Yeare to you, VickiQ.

On a hot summer day after mowing the yard I find an I cold beer, not the good stuff but something like Bush Lite. So cold it almost gives you a brain freeze and it only takes 2 or 3 drinks to finish. But the best of the best for me is this little Artesian spring that comes out of a pipe on the side of a hill near a trout stream I fish. After wading all morning in the sun I just pull up fill the water bottle... no need for lemon this water is incredible.

jdp, you should really get a hiker's water purifier for that. you might get a visit from giardia, and i don't mean de laurentiis.

i have an extremely high tolerance for salmonella, and other bad buggies in food, but i did get really sick once from drinking ground water when hiking. that would seem especially important in the poopy pasturelands of southern wisconsin.

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.
What makes it a French coke? I don't think I've ever had one that I know about.

Coke in other countries sometimes still use cane sugar instead of corn syrup. I am guessing that may be the difference.

Bucky under normal circumstances I would but this ones from a deep well. People from all over the area come to fill up there bottles. Plus a little bacteria helps keep the immune system in shape.
