    Your Favourite Non-Alcoholic Thirst Quenchers

    Hello All,

    What do you drink as your favourite Non-Alcoholic summer-time thirst quenchers?

    It reached a high here of 38.6 degrees Celsius in what has so far been a non-event La Niña for our district this summer.

    As a thirst quencher I make a mix of Bickford's Lemon Juice Cordial and sparkling mineral water.

    Bundaberg Brewed Drinks and Schweppes used to make a bitter lemon soft drink. The word "bitter" always used to be an understatement. However, it used to knock out a thirst after drinking: water, milk, tea, iced tea, and juice

    I also get the Zooper frozen cordial sleeves.

    What are your summer-time non-Alcoholic thirst quenchers?

    Kind regards
    Lionel

    Zooper Doopers are a site requirement when it’s hot!

    Zero Sugar Lime On ice is my current drink.
    Prefer it to booze too.

    SanPellegrino Arancianta Rossa or Pompelmo sparkling mineral water. That's blood orange or grapefruit for the uninitiated. Not too sweet, not sticky, not too fizzy, just lovely Italian refreshment.

    Quality Indian tonic, grapefruit juice or iced coffee.
    If you don't like trucks, stop buying stuff.

    Cold Schweppes Indian Tonic Water with Claytons (about 10% to 20% depending on your taste).

    I'm annoyed that I cannot get Mynor GI lime cordial anymore :-(

    Hello All,

    Thank you for all your contributions. I was really interested in Sashadidi's Malawi Shandy... well right up to the point of the "sometimes Worcestershire sauce" bit. Hmmm.

    Another drink that used to work for me was Ward's Fruit Saline - which no supermarket here seems to stock any more. Cottee's used to make a similar saline too. This also has not been stocked on the local shelves for a long time. Salvital is alternative to the two other "Fruit Salines".


    Kind regards
    Lionel
