Favorite Summertime Drink

Well, Secret Pal 12 is off to a bang, to say the least. We've got our matches and we've got our first question - what is your favorite summertime drink?

If there is one thing I do, it's over-analyze. Does this mean alcoholic? We don't really drink anything special in the summer. What do I drink the most of anyhow?

In truth, I guess the answer really has to be water. I prefer carbonated water, but still, it's water. My favorite all-time drink is coffee, but in the summertime when I'm thirsty I'll go for water. I like it with no ice, and maybe some lime, lemon, or a dash of something else for flavor. We've flavored it with extracts imported from Sainsbury's (yes, a grocery store in England), with such exotic combinations as lime and ginger. But it's important that it not be overly-flavored and even more important that it not be too sweet. If I'm going to satisfy a thirst, the plainer the better.

How dull, eh?

[I edited this post because the first time I published it, I let the spell checker trick me into calling the grocery store, "Salisbury's." Oops.]

I'm a water girl, myself. I haven't had a full soda (pop, coke, whatever) to myself in over 10 years. I wonder how much it would cost to ship a case of water to my SP??? hehehe
