    I like ice water and lime juice. For the last week I have worked in a peanut roasting room that is 130+, Gatorade just makes me more thirsty.

              Exactly. Better than anything.  My reason is, I can drink ice water all day, and while it replaces the moisture lost, it doesn't quench my thirst. Gatorade replaces the nutrients lost, but also doesn't quench my thirst. A big glass of sweet tea not only replaces moisture lost, it tastes great and leaves me feeling like I can handle working another hour in 100+ degree temperatures.

                Iced tea. Or beer from a bottle sheathed in ice.

                  Or an ice cold beer.

                    Ice water with lemon juice or a ice cold lemon-lime La Croix water in a cold glass.

                      If i'm thirsty, water is the only ticket. I cant even stomach smelling tea yet drink it.

                        Yep, ice water or an ice cold beer.

                          Try Ice water with sliced cucumbers in it. Delicious and, cringe, probably good for you!

                            Speaking of ice water, we're back to having water with our meals out again. The last place we went charged $2.50 for iced tea and soft drinks. Just not worth it imo

                              Ice water has been my beverage forever. I grew up with very little soda( it was a treat once a week) and Bob says I make the best! How silly! But I run the cold water, have tons of ice in a big glass, and pour it over. I let it sit a moment before serving it...

                                If it's been well-filtered, cold water is my choice, with or without ice.

                                  I have no problem paying a couple of bucks for a drink in a restaurant if it were something I really enjoyed. I often order the lassi in Indian restaurants. But I try to stay away from large amounts of HFCS and I'm not crazy about colas, so at 99% of restaurants, it's tap water for me.

                                    I was in the grocery store on Sunday and the bottled water shelves were fairly empty, no doubt due to the heat wave gripping this part of the country.  When the weather gets like this water's not only refreshing but very necessary to good health.
                                    I can remember going to day camps at various forest preserves when I was young and nothing beat the taste of cold well water pumped by hand, especially after having hiked a mile or 2 on a warm summer day.  I grew up drinking well water so any sort of minimally treated well or spring water is my preference, whereas my wife who grew up in the Chi-burbs prefers the taste of city water.

                                      I wish I could have some of my grandparents well water.  The first think I would do when I got to their house was drink 2 or 3 glasses of water.  It was always cold out of the faucet & the best tasting water I have ever had.

                                        I try to stop by here a couple of times a week, every time I'm in the area for the cold spring water of Cold Spring Harbor, Long Island...

                                          A good friend of mine is the utility superintindant (sp) and he pulls a 5 gallon cooler full of the town's local well water straight from the source.
                                          It is cold, sweet and delicious. I could drink that whole 5 gallons like it was nothing.
