What beverage do you drink most often around dinner time?

“Hello! Our name is RVtravel and we’ll be your server tonight. While you look over the dinner menu, can I get you started with something to drink?”

Well, what’ll it be?

Around dinner time (before, during, after), which beverage do you find yourself most often drinking? Water? Milk? A Coke? A beer? A chilled glass of rosé? A margarita? A Gatorade? Sweet peach tea? Maybe it’s a few of the above! Or, perhaps, you’re too focused on the food to pay attention to any type of beverage.

If you answer “other,” please leave a comment. Thanks!

For years while camping the choice would have been a beer. Used to keep a two a day limit. Now that choice is water.

For dinner (noon) we almost always have a tea. It used to be coffee but we changed it up due to digestive issues with coffee. We may have an alcoholic beverage before supper but only when we dine out and then it is occasional.

Sometimes tea, sometimes huckleberry lemonade, sometimes decaf coffee and occasionally a beer.

0 calorie flavored sparkling water … no artificial sweeteners or additives. Brands such as La Croix, Bubly and many others now. Also great for mixing with Bacardi on (for me) special occasions.

Soda? Do you mean Coke? (A Southerner here) And dinner is in the middle of the day. Supper is the evening meal.

Glass of wine and a cup of hot tea. How come the survey doesn’t include either hot tea or coffee?

Water is a staple. Now and then a half glass of tea or maybe wine depending on the meal.

Unsweetened ice tea or ice water. You needed more tea options. My husband in restaurants gets half sweet tea half unsweetened so it’s not to sweet.

Definitely soft drink, not sports drink, and, more particularly, Coke, Mountain Dew, or Dr. Pepper. My wife has water usually.

The survey question says “around dinner time”. One of the response options is “with” dinner. Two different things. For me beer around dinner time, water or tea with dinner.

Dave and DW … really? Buttwiper or Colorado Cat p**s Lite? How about a brew owned by an American company, preferably local to wherever your wanderings take you.

Well for 50+ years it was saccharine sweetened ice tea. The last 4 years and 8 months my new bride turned me onto ice water, now I have my Contigo cup of ice water beside me 24 hrs a day. Even when sleeping it’s within arms reach

A sip of water for my Meds, otherwise nothing. I have a water bottle with me all day and fill it several times a day so meals don’t require anymore liquids. Wife and I will also have several cups of tea during the day again not at meals.

Water, or soda?
Kroger stores market a nice, clear, cherry-flavored water. I like that with dinner. It’s carbonated so I chose “soda” even though it’s just fizzy water. Much of the time, I drink my own flavored water, fizzed by my Soda Stream.

So…. soda? Or water?
