There's been a huge kerfuffle in work over the drinks machine and whatever, and we did a survey to see what kind of drinks are most popular. So it got me wondering....

Since polls still aren't a thing we'll be YOLO'ing this as per...

So, favourite type of drink?

  • So hot drinks are coffees, tees, hot chocolate etc...
  • Cold drinks such as Orange, Vimto, Ribena and the like...
  • Fizzy drinks such as Coke, Tango, Dr. Pepper....
  • Water for the purists...
  • Fizzy water for the hipsters...


For me, water is king. But I do admit to enjoying some tea every now and then.

Pipi, fizzy orange drink specific to my hometown, as well as Cockta, Slovenian cola without caffeine or orthophosphoric acid... nor the retarded amounts of sugar Coca-Cola has.

I buy cases of "Sparkling Ice" which is a carbonated sugar free flavored water drink. They are pretty good and I prefer them to drinking just plain water.


As for soda, my favorite is Dr Pepper.

For cold soft drinks my fav is Dr. Pepper. Nothing goes better with a triple bacon jalapeño cheeseburger from Whataburger than a cold 5 million oz. Dr. Pepper, but I'm also a slut for any kind of lemonade. Even just water with a bunch of lime in it. I'm also a huge fan of HEB sparkling waters, esp. the mango one.


Hot drinks it's either tea, I enjoy the fancier once but those are often outta my range. Else, lady earl grey with a fuckload of milk and honey.  Also warm milk and honey, or a café con leche with honey and amaretto is a killer combo. I also enjoy hot chocolate with cayenne and cardamom, or chile ancho.


And for alcoholic beverages, I freaking love an icy cold Löwenbräu, or Norlands Guld. Also gin and tonic (I make a pretty darn good one tbh), or margaritas. Especially a chamoy margarita oh gosh.

Same.  Cut the soda out couple of months ago and lost an inch around my waist.  Jonesed moderately for a week or two from the sugar being cut out, but I'll live longer and I don't miss it now.   Mostly just coffee, water and unsweetened tea and the occasional cranberry juice I stumble across that doesn't have sugar or corn syrup as a sweetener.

What exactly where the effects of jonesing off sugar? I've been really trying to keep the soda outta my diet, I tend to do pretty good and limit myself to a can or two in the weekend (as opposed to one to every meal), and most of the time I'll just fall back into old habit, but I'm not sure if I'm aware of my own symptoms of sugar withdrawal or whatever. Generally I don't really eat that much sugar comparatively however.

Normally I just drink water. Sometimes sparkling (carbonated) water lately. Fruity teas are nice for when I'm craving sweets. Coffee / hot cocoa are probably my favorites, but I only have coffee once every few months and haven't had hot cocoa in years...

Mostly just water, but I have a serious soft spot for Ginger Ale.

...and beer, of course.
