Proper dehydrated today and nothing's doing it for me. What can I buy that'll sort me out?
hydr: prefix, meaning water or relating to water
thanks for nothing
I end up dribbling it down my chin sometimes its that mouth-watering.
and couldn't find one for ages and then had some mixed fruit juice and it was the best moment of my life. I don't any other drink would've come close.
Natural electrolytes and that, innit?
That's why they make IV's out of coconuts in those survival films.
srsly. Or iced tea. Or a good pint of orange squash.
what is wetter than water and why?
you don't need to answer that, just thought it was a good sentence.
to answer the OP question: for me, except for the obvious answer of "it depends", best thirst-quencher is an ice cold homemade lemonade (not fizzy) with a pinch of salt.
gives me that great OH YES feeling.
coulda used you guys an hour ago
or lemonade and orange juice
1/3 orange juice, 2/3 lemonade. Ultimate quencher.
Many a hangover has been soothed by that combo. More expensive than a pint usually mind.
without any water
It is lorina coconut and limeade
powerade does the job nicely. People keep saying water, but I suppose it depends on why you are thirsty. If it is to replace water sweated out, you need some electrolytes and salts all that shit as well.
this shit is good, man.
whilst getting caught in the rain.
The correct answer is a pint of shandy, by the way.
then coconut water or something like that.
IN terms of what makes you FEEL thirst quenched, even if it's not all that hydrating, then orangina or irn bru.
of half a lime and then add some ice. Very refreshing and thirst quenching.
that comes out of the packet with buffalo mozzarella. it's so good. and probably really bad for me.
not very good listeria-avoidance behaviour.
I love to drink pickled chilli pepper brine and olive brine straight out of the jars, you're not alone in your wrongness.
slightly watered down. Or just a good old pint of orange squash.
A snazzier solution is coconut water or powerade. I find water doesn't actually hit the same spot, which is weird. Harder to chug down really fast.
