I am fond of Kombucha, if that counts!

Also of alcohol, a little too fond so I try to stay away from it ;)

I've never started drinking any alcoholic beverage and have no plans of doing so either. I do like alcohol-free wine though. I used to drink way to much coffee but I'm of it since some weeks ago, and of energy drinks too. So now it's just tea for me :D Trying to keep of drinks with sugar, but loves a good soda water.

besides tea I also like to drink beer and currently yangmeijiu, but I drink all kind of other stuff too like mojito or sambuca or vodka or coffee.
Depends on my mood, occasion, what country I'm at and time of day.

I am hopelessly in love with black currant saft, a Swedish version of juice (a native Swede compared it to lemonade while we were talking). I never prepare it at the recommended strength, so I end up with a very mildly flavored cool beverage. It often replaces hot tea during the summer for me.

I like beer and wine a lot (not hard liquor), and I'm partial to Indian Pale Ale beers. I love the hoppy bite.

All I really drink on a daily basis is water and tea. I do drink a few homemade green smoothies each week. Since I never cook leafy greens (collards, kale, turnip greens, spinach, etc.) with my meals it's an easy way of getting all of their nutrition without the flavor that lots of people dislike.

I buy pre-washed and cut leafy greens from the grocery store and throw the bags straight in the freezer - this way they keep for a long time. To make a smoothie, I throw a few handfuls of whatever greens I have into my Vita-Mix blender, then top it off with a few handfuls of frozen fruit (pineapple, berries, grapes, bananas..) and some water or juice to blend it up. These smoothies are still sweet, but a little more toned down than fruit smoothies. I've gotten so used to them that regular fruit smoothies taste overly sweet to me. I think it's delicious and it makes me feel great knowing I'm getting not only a few servings of healthy fruit, but also plenty of super healthy leafy greens that I wouldn't otherwise eat!

Coconut water, lots of ice cold regular water, and for that occasional extra pick-me-up, a frosty Red Bull. Maybe an iced coffee during the summer, but that's about it.

Actually, I've just started doing that myself -- I forgot to add it to my list. I'm still in the experimenting stage, and have just tried adding carrots, nice and sweet. I'll move on to the darker veggies soon!

Soju!!!!!!

No, but seriously. I like Icewine. Port. I am starting to learn a bit about the confusing and expensive world of red wines.

I got into coffee in Coasta Rica, but Korea has some truly horrible coffee, so that has waned a bit. Also, I like rum and tequila (good stuff, not the swill you get for $5 at a bar).

I also enjoy collecting strange alcohol from around the world. I have some mushroom whiskey, soju, and pear brandy from North Korea.
