In my younger days, coming out of the water in the summertime, it was ICE COLD BEER. Three beautiful words. It was usually Coors, but it didn't really matter. Now I'm older, its orange soda in the summer and hot coffee in the winter.
Of course water. quart of gatorade. Chocolate milk. Mixing in some recovery protein stuff. In the winter Sam Adams Winter Ale. The nutmeg makes a difference. A little later a nice shot of Skye Vodka. After reading all the posts I must try some Tequila.
