Figured Iíd make a place where non-alcoholic beverages could be discussed since it came up in the other thread.

Besides, Bartholomew Roberts proved you didnít need alcohol to be a merciless killing machine built in the future and sent into the past to hijack ships.

But I digress.

Iíve recently discovered Haggens makes a mean Apple Juice.

As for Coffee, Dunkin original and dark is a staple at my house, as well as Godiva. I like their chocolate truffle, wifey likes their Breakfast blend.

Iíve been known to indulge in the odd energy Drink. Wired being a favorite, a shame they no longer make it in a bottle with more B vitamins than your body could possibly process per serving.

For tea, Tazo is quickly becoming a favorite. Especially Focus, a nice black tea with hints of chocolate and orange.

Stash also makes some nice stuff with their Double Bergamot Earl Grey coming to mind as well as Lady Grey.

I have some Jasmins and Green teas I really like too (Jasmine might very well be my faveriot), though I tend to get them at the local asian marts can canít remember any of the namesÖ

Real root beer is divine. The best stuff on earth is a local brand called Fitz's, that also has an awesome restaurant with a bottling thing in the back where you can watch it in action while you eat. Plus, bottomless mugs. It's one of the most awesome places on earth.

[up][up]St. Louis, Missouri my friend! I dunno how much a plane ticket here would cost ya but it would be worth it cause you could drink your weight in root beer. And then take some back home to share joy with others. Or drink it all and be selfish. Your callsmile

Anyone tried soursop shakes before? It's a fruit like a custard apple, but juicier and with spikes on the outside. Scoop out the pulp, remove the seeds, and blend it with ice, and you have the most delicious cool-down drink for a hot day.

There's a brewery near my parent's place that brews their own root beer also.

Nice and rich, and they add the right amount of vanilla also.

Of course, I've only had one root beer I didn't like so I'm rather biased.

@ Juan: Coffee really is the shiz. My favourite ever beverage. Best brands are Godiva and Dunkin' Donuts.

Mango Lassi, Minty yoghurt and a good hot chocolate.

When I'd get sick as a child my mum would boil milk and add honey to it. It was delish.

Have you tried Juan Valdez? I hear they sell that around the States, I wouldn't know, though.

Virgil's Root Beer is pretty damn good, especially if you get the keg. (Yes, not drinking alcohol doesn't mean you can't have a keg party anyway.)

A brighter future for a darker age.

On Arizona tea: It's not bad, but I generally don't like cold tea in general. I have discovered that southern sweet tea is enjoyable though.

Rocket Dude, I like their green tea with ginseng. Most of the others are too sweet, and I'm not a big fan of fruit flavors in my tea.

I can't stand any sort of tea. My favourite will always be chocolate drinks.

Tazo's Focus tea is delicious, "A cleverly invigorating mix of black tea, roasted yerba mate, orange essence and cocoa peel." It's the shiz.

Huh. Sounds interesting.

I enjoy many kinds of tea and coffee.

Also the occasional soda. If it's gotta be a fountain drink I'll go with Dr. Pepper but I prefer the kinds of soda you buy in a glass bottle.

Do it. They're worth it.

However, get a good tea strainer. Tea bits can ruin the experience. Or use those self-fillable teabags (Tea Sac, I think, is one brand).

That said, the standard available in bags these days is way above what it was.

I have an antique silver tea strainer that used to be my Great Grandmas, it's awesome.

I also have a tea pot with a built in strainer for making whole pots of loose leaf tea and a huge strainer that I tend to break out if I intend to make tons of Thai iced tea.

Thai iced tea is awesome, it's hard to get is as strong as good Thai restaurants though.
