The official start of summer might be a few weeks away but here in South Texas it has arrived.  The heat is not too bad, it's the humidity as you can imagine that wipes you out.  So aside from drinking gallons and gallons of water these are two of my favorite drinks before 5pm.   Today is a scorcher so I ran in and poured me a glass of mineral water with lime.  It is incredibly refreshing and helps bring me back to life after taking the boys on their early afternoon walk.

Another favorite drink is Coconut water.  It is definitely a treat since it does have some calories, but not too many.  Plus I bet here in Texas they evaporate.  Of course nothing is better than drinking it straight from an actual coconut but until then, we do what we can.
What do you like to drink (before 5pm)?
