A Coke and a Smile


One of my favorite beverages is Coca-Cola classic.  Many of my friends favor Pepsi, but I’m a coke fan.  I especially like it bottled, though I love McDonald’s fountain coke as well.  It gives me a happy rush!

I also like tea.  My southern roots come out for sweet tea.  For the life of me, I can’t figure out why anyone would want unsweetened tea?!  That’s like having peanut butter without the jelly.  Or Tom without Jerry–just obscene!  I like  Arnold Palmer and Boston tea (half cran, half tea).  At our house we drink it with all meals.

You can’t go wrong with hot tea.  I like it with heavy cream and lots of sugar (try this with an orange or tangerine flavored tea and it takes just like an orangesicle).  My Starbuck’s drink of choice is a green tea latte shot and whipped (an extra shot of melon flavoring and topped with whipped cream).

I like to make hot chocolate from scratch–that includes the whipped cream, too.  No packets of powdered concoctions for me!  When I make it for the boys, I automatically top it with home made whipped cream and provide an array of garnishes including mini-chocolate chips, marshmallows, candy spinkles, small bits of fruit, and caramel or fudge syrup.  For me, making hot chocolate is an art that I relish!

I love Snapple’s banana juice although it is hard to find.  I also like their pear juice.  Plus Minute Maid’s Orangeaid is so refreshing and yummy!  Speaking of orange, I can drink OJ all day.  I like it full of pulp.

I love creamy, thick shakes.  Banana, caramel, chocolate, and marshmallow flavors are the best!

So tell me, what quenches your thirst?

  1. Dublin Dr. Pepper is my fav, which is made in Dublin, Texas without the HFCS, they use real sugar…it’s the original Dr. Pepper, which is still served in a glass bottle!

    Since you like Coke, Morocco, you should try the Mexican coke, which is made in Mexico. Much like the Dublin Dr. Pepper, it’s made without the HFCS and with cane sugar. It’s still sold in the glass bottle, it’s the best!!!!

  2. I can’t drink soda anymore, but I used to be addicted to Diet Dr. Pepper. For the last couple years though, it is heavily altered coffee (sugarfree hazelnut coffeemate and splenda) or Peach Propel. I love both!!

  3. I make my own hot cocoa too, but I sprinkle some cinnamon in it for that chocolate-cinnamon spice. Mmm … Peach Iced tea is delicious too. My all time favorite would have to be hot cranberry apple cider. Yummy! And I’m in agreement with Stacy about the Mexican Coke! I’m not much of a coke fan, especially now that my fiance works for Pepsi (forced to be bias, boo!!!) But the Mexican Coke is quite tasty!

  4. Wow!  Forget about Starbucks, I would like to try your home made hot chocolate, it sounds awesome. I like all types of tea, as long as they are super sweet. My hot chocolate has to have a lot of chocolate in it (borderline thick). I also love Snapple’s Banana juice, here where I live, I always find them at a certain Safeway food store. For some reason not all stores carry them, and I don’t understand why because they are great tasting.

  5. mmmm…. cooookkkkke. fountain. it’s bubblier than the can or bottle. love it. i love tea with honey. lots of honey. chamomile tea with just honey, but earl grey with cream and sugar. i love sweet tea. we don’t have it in california (dur). unless i guess we make it ourselves. but oh man! the sugar!

    i love coffee in bed. cold water after brushing my teeth. mexican hot chocolate on the weekends. oh, that’s good. i had it this morning.

  6. humph!! Coca Cola means Paralyser to me. This is a heavily potent drink. Milk, Coke, Vodka, kahulia. In my single years. this was my preferred drink. Ha Ha

    Otherwise I stay away from the drinks.!!
