    After finding that caffiene was the reason for my insomnia my favorite now is distilled water. That is, until I get a well put in!
    I will suck down Gatorade too, but only on those hot days on the tractor.

    Well, I think I've said before -- I could do without electricity, running water, a central furnace, store bought food, etc. etc. etc. -- Could live like a cavewoman and be cheerful about it.

    But take away my sodas, and it's all over -- time to throw in the towel, life's not worth living anymore. :eek:

    Seriously, my emergency stash of food has a case of Pepsi in it. :)

    I always say that Mt. Dew is my "drug of choice". but I try to limit myself to bowling night (1x per week). we also go through about a gallon of sweet tea a day around here.

    I would say I drink unsweetened ice tea more than anything.

    Soft drink-wise, I would say Pepsi, followed by Dr. Pepper.

    Alcoholic-wise, which I rarely drink, Pepsi and rum.

    We have also been drinking alot of Tang, and strawberry lemonade.

    1. Water, to keep my hydrated while doing homesteading activities
    2. Cappuchino, to jump start my mind prior to homesteading activities
    3. Iced tea, just because it's a traditional homesteader's drink
    4. Hibiscus Mint tea, when homesteaders don't want caffeine
    5. Jasmine tea, as even homesteaders eat Chinese food
    6. Grapefruit Juice, due to the fact that this homesteader needs to lose about 10 pounds
