      I Need A Drink Poll

      It's hot. It's sweltering. It's sticky and gross. I need a drink.

      So the question is: what to have?

      All the heat advisories say drink lots of water and avoid caffeine and alcohol. All the coffee shops are pushing frappuccinos. Years of university training say "hot day"+"beer"="good times".

      So the question remains: what to drink on a scorching hot day to refresh and rehydrate?
