Actually, one of my favorite drinks on a hot day is soda water mixed with pickle brine from fermented (lactic acid, not vinegar) pickles.
Ah yes… I forgot all about the Ren Faire Pickle Test - if that dill pickle tastes sweet, you’re heading for trouble and had best down a tankard of Dragon Sweat. (Gatorade mixed at half normal strength)
A little too hot, apparently.
Or as a former co-worker used to tell me frequently… 'Straight to Hell!*
