What to drink instead....

A question I've seen an awful lot of around here is "what the hell should I drink now that I don't drink??"

Here's one that I've stumbled across that is;

-Really tasty
-Very healthy
-Rejuvenatory for the innards of we who have abused our innards
-Kinda "feels" special (crisp, fresh, sparkling and 'fancy')

I particularly like the "mojito" flavor, but they're all damn good. Take 'em along to special events where people are going to be drinking so you'll have your answer to "can I get you something to drink". Keep 'em in your fridge so you have a treat on hand when you feel the pull of a craving. Use 'em as your celebratory bevvie - they elicit a feel-good outcome in your body.... have one daily for general health and restoration.

hmm... maybe not... I assumed it was available since this is a uk website, but the links all go back to the US site and the article talks about US retailers...

surely there must be some similar probiotic drink product in the UK though.

I'm hooked on flavoured seltzer water with lemon/lime.

Thanks, looks good! I also will splurge on Craft Root-beer now and then for special events or camping!

As an englishman tea is the only option. Even as a slobbering drunk I needed to drink 5 cups a day so they didn't revoke my citizenship.

hey ultradad!!

me too!! Root Beer is one of my go-to's if I'm in a bar-restaurant or if I'm going to a party I'll often bring that or ginger beer.

I've been seriously considering starting a craft root beer brewing operation... making the world a little less alcoholic, one bottle at a time!

@FreeOwl: Probiotic, you say? I'm sure that's good news for the dairy avoiders who don't eat/drink yogurt or kefir.

In the morning I drink coffee and in the evening/weekends I like a good strong glass of iced tea with sugar and sometimes lemon.

Always just flavored seltzer waters. La Croix has so many flavors. Just bought a 12 pack this morning.

I just checked out the site and they do look good. I also appreciate the other members' suggestions. As I am new to this, it helps to have as many options as I can get to substitute for alcohol. Drinking soda only would get old really quick.

Following a suggestion from croissant, I'm a good way down a huge bottle of fizzy water today, and as an English lass, tea of course is a must (nod to MrBen)

Have recently found aloe vera juices as well, definately something different from soda and very good for "digestive matters"
