Just curious... are you a lemonade or a limeade or an iced tea or mixture type of person? My favorite is a combo lemonade / limeade but if I have to choose I'll go lemon.

I love lemonade, but never have any in the house. I like water with lots of good crunchy ice. I crunch on ice all summer long. Tea is just icky to me.

I voted lemon/lime mix, but honestly, we haven't had lemonade, limeade, or iced tea all summer, except for stuff I made for a party. Water and coffee are my routine beverages, winter, spring, summer, or fall.

good old sparkling water for me-with a dash of bitters

I also make a lot of herb infused water-i.e. rosemary, etc.

Ice tea - I make it with green tea or herbal tea. NEVER sweetened!

Of this list it would be ice tea. But we also do various alcoholic drinks like wine coolers and beer, and juices.

I love lemony ice tea.

But if I go out to eat I often order water with lemon, then just squeeze out the lemon and add 1 sugar packet to make weak lemonade.

Weak, but free lemonade.

My first choice is good, old fashioned water!

I drink iced tea about once or twice a week, and water several times a day.

Iced tea lightly sweetened with organic demerara sugar. I drink it year round though. I'm southern.

Orangeade.

That's my favorite.

I voted iced tea, though, because I really like that, too.

I love lemonade... can't stand iced tea...even sweet tea. Shame, as I've lived in the South most of my adult life.

Well, your poll would only let me choose ONE option! So...I had to vote other. Mostly I drink water, then iced tea ( decaf) and then lemonade.

Oh, Olive Garden has raspberry lemonade!
