What do you drink?

Postby Grand Evander » Sat May 02, 2009 1:54 pm

Hi all,

I'm just wondering what your favorite drink is while writing?

I prefer coffee, with no sugar and occasionally on ice, alongside a bottle of water. Occasionally, I'll go with a mix of cranberry and orange juice instead, and years ago, I used to write alongside a cup of white tea made with an infuser. I've kind of developed a tolerance for caffeine, so my choices are really governed by taste. I think having something to drink while I write helps me concentrate and collect my thoughts between sips.

Usually coffee to give me a nice caffeine buzz, but occasionally Earl Grey tea and today it's been a V8.

Lots of Mt. Dew.

My high school physics teacher once told me that the best buzz comes from a combination of mountain dew and salt & vinegar chips.

I've moved a lot more toward ice coffee these days. A good trick is to freeze coffee into ice cubes so that the ice doesn't dilute the coffee.

I tried drinking white tea but I didn't get enough punch from it, so to speak, and orange juice just gives too much of a breakfast beginning-of-the-day feel.

Hot chocolate also works too.

Hi, Susan!

Caffeine gives me the jitters and keeps me awake at night, so I avoid it as much as I can. For a beverage while working, I'd say some flavored decaf coffee, or lemon and honey green decaf tea. This time of year, iced coffee is very nice.

To tell you the truth I do not drink while I write but if I was guessing mine would be either coffee or a good old favorite Ale8. (a Kentucky exclusive drink) Yet I am sure you could probably find it on the internet.

To Talon: Shut up, Doofus McDorkenstein, you don't know what you're talking about.....love you! And I drink a lot of cream soda lately while listening to an Icelandic band called "Sigur Ros". Anyone here heard of them?

Definitely coffee the sweeter the better, it seems to be the beverage of choice.
