Mine would either be Sonic's Cherry Limeade or Red Robin's Freckled Lemonade.

Lemonade first and iced tea second, whether it be from a bottle that is mass produced, or a pitcher at home is hard to beat when it is summertime.

Bottled spring water super ice cold.
Gatorade Lemon Lime
Fresh brewed ice tea with sweet & low.
Artic Blast (Mr.Misty)Dairy Queen grape slush.
Fresh Lemonade (hand squeezed with sugar).

All of these and not in any order. Ice cold spring water is my all time favorite for cooling off.

I would have to say that it's Sobe Courage, which is a citrus-cherry flavor. You could almost call it a non-carbonated Code Red. I haven't seen it around anymore though...

Minute Maid Forte (Peach or Mango Nectars)
Minute Maid Revita (Melondia or Marandu)
Powerade (Berries, Green Apple or the Green Grape limited edition)
Ciel Aquarius (Grapefruit)

Single serve Lipton ice tea no sugar no lemon.
I can only find it in the summer around here.
And after schlepping cases in the heat it’s nice to have a cold ice tea with nothing added.

Saint I too love unsweetened Lipton Ice Tea.
How long will it stay good after the fresh date?

Lepke is so right. Ice cold (real cold) ULIT is awesome.

Aren't Cherry Limeades Carbonated?

Red Rose iced tea with a little Sweet'n low (and sometimes without.) I drink more of that than anything else, no matter the season. I typically go through at least a gallon every couple of days this time of year. Matter of fact, I just finished a glass.

Lepke is so right. Ice cold (real cold) ULIT is awesome. I also like Iced Tea in the summertime. Sobe Green Tea is a good one. Unsweetened Lipton definitely has its crowd...I think because there aren't really many competitive offerings to an unflavored, unsweetened tea. I can't remember having tried it myself because I like at least a little sweetner. It has its niche here in SoCal and I know of people who ask for it by name.

LOL
Unflavored bottled Ice Tea can be an acquired tast. It's like taking a shot of Jack Daniels but only smoother. LOL I use to like drinking it on long road trips. YUM!

When it’s hot and you have been lugging cases in and out of coolers and store rooms in the heat, some times it’s just nice to have something other then water that is not sweet to quench your thrust. It’s tea so it has caffeine but no sugar so it’s refreshing. How much sweet crap can you drink in the summer heat?

Good point Lepke. It has been a long time since I humped cases off of a truck. I do not miss those days at all. Sometimes no matter how much you drank or how cold it was it seemed the only thing a bottle of water was good for was dumping it over your head to cool off.
