    Mine’s tea Fandango, though I don’t mind a latte coffee with a slice of cake or maybe a Calypso coffee after a nice meal.

      I didn’t know what a Calypso coffee was but after googling the recipe I think I may give that a try!

    My favorite beverage, before they stopped selling it, was Rain — a clear-as-water agave cactus energy drink in a line of four flavors, called Elements (the others included Fire and Earth and another and were not clear in color). I would buy it again, now, but I buy Mexican Coca Cola instead… readily available. I drink that occasionally, as a treat.

    When I bought Rain, it was in a metal, seemingly insulated (or double-layered) bottle (or can in a bottle shape) with a screw-off lid. I’ve seen pictures of it having been sold in clear glass bottles, too.

    What I drink every day, and like very much, is coffee (not black) as well as water (fizzy via SodaStream in addition to plain, either filtered or from the tap).

      Why did they stop selling Rain?

        I wish I knew. Or, more than that, I wish they still would sell it. It simply was no longer available. I drank it somewhere around 2009/10ish, maybe; perhaps earlier. Something like a year after I couldn’t find it, I contacted the company to see if I could buy it in cases. They didn’t give me any reason, just said they don’t make it any more.
