What do you usually order to drink at dinner when you have dinner in a restaurant? How about at home? I usually like tea because I like to have tea to flush away the grease especially dinning outside. I sometimes order coke or orange juioce when I dine at a restaurant. Also, do you tend to finish the drink before the food arrive? I sometimes do :-p How about you?

i drink water because water is required for digestion. Even in restaurant I prefer water. Coke is a alternative for water to me I even prefer flavored water. I finish to drink before the food arrive because i feel more thirsty as soon as i see some drink waiting for me to drink.

Hello mermaidivy, I like hot tea when it is at home or just a plain water. When I dine out, I prefer to order my favorite Coke or orange juice. Now, it depends whether my 2 years old son is there with us or not. He can't see us drink carbonated drink as he would like to have one for him too. So, trying to avoid that, we always order fruit juice. Sometimes when the order takes too long to arrive, I do finish up my drink and just order for another glass!

I usually drink tea or just plainly water during dinner because I think I need a lot of water for body cleansing.

I need it a lot too! It is becoming my daily habit of drinking tones of water everyday and it helps lots of stuff like digesting and feel cleaner! Thanks for responding! :-)

I used to order drinks everytime we go out and eat but we realized that the drinks are quite expensive in restaurants. Its not very pratical to pay so much for the drinks since you really went there for the food. Besides, its not like there is anything special about the drinks, its just iced tea or fruit juices. So this time we make it a point to either bring bottled drinks with us or to just have plain water. If we wanted something hot, we would just order a pot of tea.

mostly water at home and restaurants. Fast food places I get either a sprite or seirra mist. When I am at a restaurant I do tend to finish a water before the food arrives. It helps keep me from eating too much food. They use to call it a diet. I call it me just needing something to drink after waiting. I keep a cup of water at home and when I'm waiting to be seated I don't have any water so I guess I make up for it when I am seated.

Well, most of the time when we go out to eat somewhere it often depends on where we are eating, and our mood as to what we will order to drink. Most of the time I will often order either a Diet Coke or Pepsi, or a Glass of milk. But then there are times we resort to just a glass of water with our meals as well.

I like to order softdrinks in a restaurant. I dont drink it until the food arrived because it is bad when you dont have something in your system. You have to eat first before you drink softdrinks. =)

For dinner, i usually drink Coke or juice. I prefer Coke with food like barbecues, fried or roasted chicken. Juice can go along with any food. Sometimes, i'm in the mood to just drink water. But drinking water at night makes me sleepy.

i would probably say coke or maybe a dr. pepper if they have it or sometimes a vanilla milkshake those are so good and they would never make it till the food arrives. if i got the coke or dr. pepper i would try to make them last till i got the food. i never really liked tea even though i know its supposed to be better for you never been a big fan of the taste of it.

At a restaurant, I usually chose ice water and tea or gingerale. When I'm at home, I usually prefer water or milk.

I usually have water. It is the best to wash things down for me. I do have a pepsi sometimes, really trying to get ready for swim suit season, so it will probably be water in the future. It is also cheap ;)

I have iced tea with no sugar only lemon for dinner. Sometimes I will have oolong tea instead. At a restaurant I don't usually finish before the food arrives.

If we are dining out we usually have soda unless the restaurant carries milk then the whole family will usually end up getting chocolate milk. We like the kids of chocolate milk that is the syrup poured into your white milk, we think it just tastes better because you have the taste of chocolate but it isn't too rich. If we are at home we are usually having milk, just plain white milk or water. A lot of the times the kids will drink kool-aid over milk but we love our milk. I usually get stuck buying a gallon of milk a week for the four of us.
