No alcohol in this one.....although some of those are pretty good too. This one a bit sweet but good for one in a day.

Last weekend I bought one of each* La Croix flavor with my son. I've bought every flavor before, but not at once. These are the things one does when it is 115F+ every day.

That was 12 cases of the standard cans and 6 cases of the tall. ~$82

A cold can of La Croix is the first 3nd** thing I open after I arrive home after my 40min cycle commute in the heat.

*I did not get plain or cola (which is not avail in my region)
**1st is front door, 2nd is fridge

9%? You may be thinking of the Imperial version. I was a devotee of the original Ranger for years. The new [inferior, sorry] Voodoo Ranger is 7%.
I finished my last original Ranger last week. Still in mourning.

Right you are. The 9% is the Imperial IPA. The store carried the previous Ranger only once a few months ago. Good, but not as good as the Imperial version.

There's a local microbrewery in Dallas that makes an excellent variation (I think it's called Velvet Hammer), but it's available only on tap at a few Fort Worth pubs.

Usually I prefer Citradelic (or a local tap-only citrusy rye ale called Hairpin) in hot weather but Voodoo Ranger isn't overpowering and just tangy enough to not taste too heavy.

Bombay Sapphire with Topo Chico Lime. Tonic is my usual mixer but I thought I'd try to Topo to reduce the calorie count. First try...not a convert yet. Will need more experimentation.

Glenmorangie scotch. Not sure if this is a generic kind, but it definitely has a lighter character than the beloved JW black.

Fresh ground French roast coffee. Besides needing a post-nap afternoon pick me up, it also helps with asthma and sinus headaches.

The best pilsner I ever had. So this is what a pilsner can taste like. A pilsner does not have to be Lite™ and pathetic.

I picked up a Six Point variety pack after having their Resin IPA on tap in Cortland, NY while doing the Bon Ton Roulet bike tour. Resin is effing outstanding. Truly. This pils was a nice surpise.

One jigger of Noilly Pratt, two jiggers of Stoli, shaker full of ice. Shaken. Poured into frosty-cold martini glass that had the rim wiped with lemon peel, and a slender curl of lemon garnish. Delightful!

I've got a big tour coming up. My bike and gear are light-weight, but I am not, so I have stopped drinking soft drinks and beer. Right now I'm enjoying a nice glass of ice water. I've lost 2 pounds in 5 days, hopefully I can lose another 10 or 15 before I start my ride.
