What do you drink every morning? I drink water and sometimes juice.

    I take a few pills and wash them down with Ocean Spray Cran-Pomagranate and after that it's about 8-10 cups of Caribou coffee.

      Espresso and Cran-Cherry for the pills.

        First I take my AM meds, vitamins, and herbs washed down with a glass
        of filtered tap water to which a packet of Emergen-C  powdered "Black Cherry" has been added.
        Then I'll have a 1-2 cups of coffee. Either grinding premium beans and using my French Press or, my Lavazza Cartridge coffee maker using Lavazza espresso cartridges.

            Big glass of water for my morning pill, then I usually get an unsweetened iced tea with lemon from the shop down the block each morning, then lemon water as I refill the cup with filtered water after the tea is gone.

              I start the day with two glasses of water.  By the time I'm at my office, it's time for my first "Coke in the morning." I started drinking Coke early in the day when I lived in Nashville, and I've never gotten out of the habit.
               
              One suggestion to all you folks who take your pills with fruit juices -- check with your doctor. Grapefruit juice and pomegranate juice can interact with all kinds of medications, including Lipitor, blood thinners, and blood pressure medications.

                At home it's either hot chocolate or tea.  On the road it's always coffee.

                  Very good advice. My doctor told me the same thing! About the juice. Not the Coke!

                    1st thing is a large glass of water. That is to re-hydrate, as have had no fluids for 5-7 hours. Then it is on to several cups of hot Dr Pepper. I know, it is strange!!!

                          Sweet tea. Straight from the bed to the fridge.  I bring a mug large enough, fit for a construction worker to work and it last's me until around 3p.

                            Nothing like an icy cold Coca-Cola to clear my grogginess away first thing in the morning.   Best accompanied by some cold Frosted Cherry Pop-Tarts  or McDonald's hash browns.

                                      If that drink you posted is helpful for running, it should be outstanding for the rest of us.

                                          OK, I'll 'fess up.  When I lived in Alaska we would go over to our friends' house at 9AM to watch football. ( 4-hour time difference) And yes, we would start the kick-off with Bloody Marys.  And we'd drink Bloody Marys at half-time and at the end of the game too!

                                              If I'm cooking a brisket and need to get the fire going at about 4 am I've been known to pop a Shiner for my morning pills.

                                                Coffee. Unflavored. Usually a box of Gevalia, which we've been buying for many, many years.

                                                  What do you drink every morning? I drink water and sometimes juice.

                                                  For me, it's OJ (only Simply Orange or Tropicana) to start and then water for most of the day.  
                                                   
                                                  When I see people drinking Coke or diet coke before noon, I'm always reminded of the Saturday Night skit - "Coke's not just for breakfast anymore".  I'll never understand it, but to each his own.......

                                                    Green tea.  Lately my passion has been for jasmine green tea.

                                                      Maybe I'll have Sangria tomorrow morning . That way...I can't run.

                                                      Think I'll have one, too--for the same reason, of course.
                                                       
                                                      drumm - I'm with you.  I love Jasmine green tea!

                                                        I recently mixed up a winner:
                                                         
                                                        Dole 100% Pine-Orange Banana juice and Grapefruit Perrier, mixed in equal parts and gently stirred. The resulting beverage tastes weirdly of cardamom. It's very tasty, very subtle, and all of the flavors work surprisingly well together.
                                                         
                                                        For a less "flavor-packed" version, just mix equal parts Dole 100% Pineapple Orange juice and regular Perrier (or carbonated spring water of your choice). A bit more straightforward, but it's just as refreshing.

                                                            Coffee is always the first thing. I then follow up with Trader Joe's Garden Patch low-sodium tomato juice, sort of a V8 knockoff that I like better.
