Saturday Six

Another meme for today. This one came from here.

Q. What are your six favorite beverages and why do you like them so much?

1. A&W Rootbeer. Because it is delicious! And when I was a kid and we went to visit my grandparents in La Junta we would go to the A&W drive in. We would get the root beer in frosty mugs and it was better than any root beer in the world. Well, in my world.

2. Lemonade. Because it's tangy and sweet. Old-fashioned, yellow, and happy. It refreshes.

3. Dr. Pepper. Because I'm a Pepper. Although it has so much sugar and caffeine that I seldom drink it. It is a unique drink that cannot be duplicated. No matter what Mr. Pibb thinks.

4. Sweet tea. Because it's tea and it's sweet. It is old fashioned and makes me think of front porches. But again, I seldom have it.

5. Water. Water is the stuff of life. Can't live without it. Nothing quenches quite like it.

6. Black Cherry Koolaid. Takes me back to childhood. This was my favorite flavor. I haven't had any in years.

If I were to tell you the favorite beverages I actually drink, that would be water. Everything else has too much sugar. Now and then I drink unsweetened tea, though.


  1. Thanks for taking part in my Saturday Six ;)

  2. Good choices, but put Pepsi for the Dr.P, and strawberry for the koolaid, and it's my list! Whoed a thunk it.

  3. I just realized that I posted a Saturday meme on a Sunday. I'm so on top of things!

  4. I think the Root Beer in La Junta had an unique taste because of the "hard water", the mineral water.

  5. A very interesting list. All those things sound and feel like summer.

    When I was growing up, one of my favorite drinks was Coke in a bottle (there weren't any cans). We didn't get it often, but it was great!


I love to hear your thoughts!
