The first weekly question:
Well... my favorite drink in ANY season is Diet Pepsi!
Occasionally, I'll switch up with fresh brewed tea made with loose leaf tea in my Perfect Tea Maker from Teavana. I place the pot over a big glass of ice with sweet and low (I like the Pink stuff)and empty the perfect pot into the glass (rather than a tea cup or carafe). Sometimes I make a full carafe of tea and then just pour the hot tea over a full glass of ice. My favorite flavor for Iced Tea is Rooibos Tropica. My second favorite is Honeybush Vanilla Herbal Tea. They no longer carry my favorite "go to bed" tea. :(
But really - DIET PEPSI is the all-time favorite.
