Keep cool in the summertime heat and make sure you stay well-hydrated.

You know, with caffeine or booze. They’re such wonderful rehydrators and replenishers.

You can always round out your hydration with something a little healthier.

Or not.  And just make this as an excuse to drink your cookie butter.

All joking aside, this one actually serves a hydration purpose

    Hydrating currently with a largeeee creamy iced coffee. And hydrated a little too well last night with wine, oh well!

      That’s what you’re supposed to do as a young and single 20something on a Friday night :)

    Iced coffee, teecinno, and water with flavored stevia drops are my favorite drinks to chug this summer with our high temps and drought conditions here in the Midwest.

    If we’re talking “hydration”, then definitely just good ol’ iced coffee. Also, on the fourth, my brother’s girlfriend brought over that “Frooty” UV- supposed to taste like fruit loops. That was pretty good mixed with punch and a pinch of Seagrams.

    Chocolate peanut butter smoothies have also been my forte as of late. Yuuuuum.

    To heck with drinking, I’ll just cut up and eat half a watermelon.

    I actually only drink water and the occasional cocktail. Looks like I’m missing out on a lot of great drinks.

    Oh, my deep deep love for iced coffee. I had two yesterday and then drank a third on the way home. But my body started revolting and decided to only finish half of a Venti. What a wuss.

    Have a great weekend!

    I’m so disappointed because I just finished off my regular hot coffee! It’s almost 100* here in FL so a little ice and vanilla in that would have been totally perfect ;) I’ll put this one on the back burner and whip it up tomorrow morning for a little iced latte outside with the greenery :)

    Great inspiration for hydration, thanks! Watermelon and watermelon cocktails are my favorite way to hydrate over the summer. :-)

    Ohhhh Bailey’s! You get me with that every time I see it.

    I’ve never thought of using coffee as “ice cubes”. Great idea!
