Summer on the community.png

Hey guys,

 

as part of our β€œSummer in the O2 Community” thread we want to see out summer with a bang and post a series of topics related to all things summer time throughout the month!  We'll be posting a summer themed topic every other day for the next month and we'd love to get some input from community members! We already have some volunteers to create content and have a rough list of topics that will be posted. If you'd like to get involved and share some thoughts on summer time, drop me a private message or post below.

This will probably be the hottest week of the year. Sizzling sun calls for chilled refreshments. So I want to know what is your favourite cool drink?

 

My personal favourite, general all year remedy and just the most delicious drink of all is an ice cold coke.

 

But I am pretty sure that we have a lot of fans of a beverage called beer on here. Or are you more sophisticated and like a good glass of G&T or an Aperol Spritz? Do you like your water sparkling or still? And lets settle an age old question: Do you put ice cubes in red wine during the summer?

Water is the obvious one. Problem is, I don't like it, so tend to drink flavoured still water such as Lemon and Lime.

Fizzy drinks are an absolute no go! They generally contain caffeine which is a diuretic (makes you pee more) so is not helpful in hydration. Such a shame as my favourite fizzy drinks are Fanta Orange and Lemonade.

I like Iced tea, which isn't particularly healthy but does cool me down.

Also despite any old wives tales, normal decaffeinated hot tea is very refreshing.

Alcohol (very sadly) is on the list of drinks to avoid in the heat. It increases dehydration.

I prefer San Pelligrino either Aranciata or Aranciata Rossa although any flavour will do..  I fell in love with it whilst working in Rome over a hot summer.... 

 

 

Although from Starbucks i love there Matcha Green Tea Frappuccino, perfect on a hot day slight_smile

@madasaf1sh those exact ones are one of my favourites, the can in the picture you posted! I ordered a crate of these a few weeks ago. The only issue for me is that fizzy drinks are bad for the teeth so I should reduce my intake...

 

@LukasB Hot coffee is always my favourite be it a hot or a cold day. joy But I have to say it doesn't help with the heat. When Costa reopened after the lockdown they came to my street, knocked on doors and gave 2 free cans of "welcome back" iced latte and iced americano. The latte was excellent especially after I refridgerated it for a while.

 

Oh and ice cubes in red wine? NO. nauseated_face (in my humble opinion, although I haven't tried... wouldn't it dilute it)

OK, might not be the healthiest, or wisest, option but in hot weather I do like a long glass of Fanta Orange or Pepsi... 

I love a cup of black tea - no milk no sugar - no matter what the weather and find it quite refreshing in the warmer weather.
