I would have said lemonade as one of my favorite drinks if that were an option! I adore lemonade, especially the homemade variety. :D

Yessss lemonade!

I always have a beverage with my meal. I have a "drink" more often than not. I rarely have ice in non-alcoholic beverages, never in beer or wine, and always in mixed drinks.

Interesting. Thanks for the comment! :D

It's not so much that I require a drink with meals, but I need to have something with me at all times to keep me hydrated.

And... I hate having ice in my drinks; it just waters it down and makes it taste flat. The reason I couldn't answer that question was because some drinks do need to be hot, and some do need to be cold (I prefer iced drinks, but on cold days, hot drinks hit the spot), but there was no option that allowed for "I dislike ice in my drink, period."

You could have picked, "I dislike ice in my drink, but the drink has to be cold."
Because I was referring to drinks that are supposed to be cold only.
Obviously, yes, some drinks are supposed to be hot. ;p I guess I could have been more specific!!

Because I was referring to drinks that are supposed to be cold only.

Ah, okay. That wasn't clear in the question at all.

And by "iced drinks," I mean things like iced tea or iced coffee that don't necessarily have to have ice in them; they just need to be cold. I still hate it when the baristas fill 3/4 of the cups with ice, so it's like I'm paying $3 for ice and $1 for coffee or tea. =P

I'm particular, I guess. Yes, the drink needs ice. But only if it's a drink that doesn't come out of a can (like tea, lemonade, or water). If it's canned soda, the can needs to be cold and I HAVE to drink it out of the can, because it's best that way. But if it's like, a 2 liter bottle of soda, I put ice in it. Because having a cup of anything without ice is just weird to me.
4th-Jun-2011 07:47 am (UTC)
Haha, I'm like you then. XD A cold can of soda is the only exception to my ice rule! I like drinking soda out of the can more than pouring it into a cup. I always found it to be better that way, and never understood people pouring soda from a can to a cup! xD

For the ice thing... it really depends on the drink. Milk and juice, never; iced tea, lemonade and soda (in glasses, not bottles) always; water occasionally.

Also, hierarchy of individual drink containers: glass bottle > can > plastic bottle, always. I prefer to decant plastic-bottle drinks whenever possible, but the other two can stay in their vessels while I drink them.

I agree with the hierarchy thing...nice example of adults being children. ;D

I said I prefer drinks with ice, because while I loveloveLOVE ice, I'm still too lazy to pour out a can of soda into a cup. Also, a can of soda lasts longer in the can. (is that weird?)

Also, because diet versions of the sodas weren't available, I went ahead and chose 'Coke', even though you'll never find me with anything that isn't a diet Coke.

I prefer either Cherry Pepsi or ginger ale. I generally skip any variation of Coke except the occasional Cherry Coke, even when I really want soda - it tastes really bitter and salty to me.
4th-Jun-2011 02:54 pm (UTC)
I love water. It goes with absolutely everything.
5th-Jun-2011 08:52 am (UTC)
Lucky you. I hardly ever drink water because I don't really like it. Dx
4th-Jun-2011 02:58 pm (UTC)
I like Coke and Pepsi equally, and I mean SWEET ICE TEA when I say ICE TEA.
4th-Jun-2011 03:48 pm (UTC)
Lemon Fanta!

My favorite soda is Wild Cherry Pepsi, yummy!! :)

If I am having a drink with a meal, it is almost always water, and I usually prefer having ice in my water. But most other drinks like soda, milk, juice, etc. I don't really like to have ice.

I like cool drinks, but I am not having them that often . My favourite is Fritz-kola, a local brand coke :).
My favourite drinks are grapefruit juice, and for tea it is rosebud tea :) (without sugar, honey or milk)

Most of the time however I just drink tap water (which by the way doesn't have anything 'added' to it. here.)
