Time to Hop!!!

  I am glad to have finally reached Friday!!!    And, I'm ready to HOP!!!    The Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Jennifer over at Crazy for Books, and it lasts all weekend.   I'm determined to hop my way through this weekend (even though I'm working on Saturday and Sunday).......

This week's question comes from Suko at Suko's NotebookWhat's your favorite beverage while reading or blogging, if any?  Is it tea, coffee, water, a glass of wine, or something else?

I almost feel like I should invent some kind of cool drink just for blogging, like something fizzy and purple......     but the truth is, what I drink really depends on what time of day it is.   I do about half my blogging really early in the morning, so I usually have some coffee (I mix it about 1/3 half and half, 2/3 coffee), but we don't make coffee every day in this house, so sometimes, it's just a diet soda (yes, in the morning --- I can't actually drink very much coffee, so I rely on a soda for my morning jolt).     With the weather getting cooler, I'm all about the apple cider -- cold or heated up.  Yum!!        However, I do admit that I'm not a no-alcohol kind of person ---- I don't mind having a beer occasionally, especially now that there are so many good pumpkin ales, and fall brews to choose from.   I also love having some lambic -- that's a special kind of beer brewed with fruit.   My favorite is New Glarus Belgian Red, which is like a grown-up tart cherry soda.    

Just thinking about all of this is making me thirsty ---- good question, Suko!    I'm curious to see what kind of answer other bloggers give --- so Happy Hopping, everyone!!

A grown up tart cherry soda is almost purple. Sort of... You have some great preferences for when you're reading or blogging. Have a happy weekend!

Love the picture! :) I'm not really a drinker when it comes to blogging or reading. But all this talk of warm drinks is making me crave hot chocolate and apple cider!

Have a great weekend.

Love your answer! I agree, it's difficult to come up with a unique drink. I don't drink much alcohol either, but New Glarus Belgian Red sounds really good.

I am already a follower of your terrific blog, and hope to visit more often. :)

Hi Jo, I know what you mean. I almost deleted my wine and martini sentence, I forgot most of these new bloggers probably are not even drinking age:)

I love that kind of belgian beer but it is hard to find it around where I live.

Great answer - always difficult to come up with something a little different about drinks! I like a little fruity cider as well during the summer but with Autumn here I'm enjoying hot chocolate - but not usually while reading - I like to fully enjoy these drinks!

cheers for coffee in the morning, and THREE cheers for apple cider!

Belinda said...

Happy HOP! That would be fun to have a special BLOG drink. Me, I just drink diet soda to keep awake. I drink water all through the day and need the caffeine help so I can do mostof my blogging and reading at night. Happy reading and I'm a new follower :)

Hop on over and visit my blog :D
