Never had the "none" before. That sounds like a deadbeat's drink. Mine is the gin & tonic: tall gin glass loaded with ice:, squeeze lime wedge over ice to let freeze. 1 oz. Gordon's or other fine gin, frozen. Top off glass with chilled Canada Dry tonic water. Garnish with lime wedge.

Water is good. As long as it has been frozen and mixed in as part of a margarita..

I have drank (drunk? drinked?) enough diet Dr Pepper to float the USS Jimmy Carter. Not bad considering it is a Seawolf Class Submarine.

Roe, the proper expression is "I have drunk" just so ya know.

Never stand in the Kaw above knee level, even when getting a refreshing sip of downstream Topeka/Manhattan. Rumor is the Candirus has been introduced from eggs off the bottom of kayaks.

I wish someone would make a diet Icee (or other similar frozen drink). There used to be a gas station in Olathe that I could get them at when the AC in the car didn't work. Know how kids like to blow bubbles with a straw in their drink? My kid did that with an Icee, what a mess. I looked the same as a volcano erupting.

Ice water makes me feel the healthiest. Ice cold beer makes me feel the best. Flux should drink more of sumthin', sounds a little constipated.

A good well made sun tea iced to the point of being ridiculous. Alcoholic drink would be a well made Bloody Mary.

Sun tea made with black tea. Got a gallon brewing now. Also, caipirinhas made with Leblon cane rum. Downside: Leblon is high $$.

I wish that the goverment could force science to create a diet water or at least some water that is low in calories and fat

One of the first drinking parties I went to was in '66. What ever you brought in was poured into the punch bowl. We called it mutha hunch punch. My stomach still lurches involuntarily when I thinkboutit.

Salty Dog. Grapefruit juice, gin and salt. Tastes best when you have so much salt in it that it freezes to the carpet if you set it on the floor.

Has anyone drank any of that smart water? Should I drive a smart car and drink smart water?

Definately a Tab. Or maybe a Fresca.

Ice cold iced tea with a touch of sweetener. (Not sugar, unfortunately. Not anymore.) I start every morning, winter and summer, with a 52 oz-er from my local Casey's. At home, it's boiling water brewed black tea. Yummy!

Water, cool but not freezing cold.

Sun Tea.

A Cold One. (Because a One that is not Cold is scarcely a One at all.)

And I love me a cherry limeade from Sonic.
