What should I drink while at work?

Asked by RocketSquid (3475points) November 24th, 2009

I gave up Mountain Dew a while ago and for the most part switched to water. I’m already feeling better, but sometimes I want to drink something with a little more flavor. I love milk, but that doesn’t store well in an office and I can’t leave my desk to refill, and I’m not a fan of tea or coffee. Is there anything you’d recommend I try?

I keep a large bottle of organic Concord Grape Juice in my fridge. I will add a splash or two and some ice to water to give it a lift.

Or you can throw in a package of lemon/lime Emergen-C.

Plenty of water or Lipton Ice Tea Lemon, my favourite.

Vitamin water, fruit juice, hot chocolate?

You could add the individual crystal light packets to your water. I think Kool-aid makes some as well. They both have aspertaim (sp.) though.

I am a huge fan of SoBe LifeWater. There are several flavors with zero calories.

I like boxed or canned juice. Though to save $$ mostly I just drink water.

Crystal Light Drink Mix

It mixes great with water and is not bad.

Juice is HIGH on calories, btw. I like G2.

Aspartame is scary. Lots of sites lists nasty possible side efects.

Vodka gimlets?
Dry martinis?
Singapore slings?

Or how about herbal teas? I really like Celestial Seasonings Mandarin Orange Spice.

I always put a slice of lemon, apple, grape, or strawberry in my water for some variety.

Maybe you just haven’t tried the right tea.

Iced green tea is delicious and light-tasting. Simply put 4 bags of (cheap) green tea in a ½ gallon pitcher with water overnight in the fridge; in the morning, you will have yummy iced green tea.

Or you could try something like mugicha, which is a roasted barley drink mainly drank in Japan. It’s good with some lemon squeezed in.

There are other concentrated juices that add flavor to water if used in moderation…pomegranate, black cherry, elderberry (no extra sugar or corn syrup added).
