I managed to drink a full 2L in one evening a few weeks ago. This past Friday I only drank half.

It most certainly has sugar, else I wouldn't touch the stuff. The American practice of serving yesterday's tea and requiring you to add your own sugar is perposterous. I like my iced tea made in a factory.

I'm American and I'm not aware of that practice.  I live in the south and the tea here is so sweet when you stir it, your spoon just about stands up by itself.  They are not kidding when they call it sweet tea!  It's very yummy, but addictive!  Love rising

In the north and west United States, "iced tea" is just regular tea at room temperature with some ice cubes in it. It wasn't until last year that somebody mentioned to me you're supposed to add your own sugar. Fortunately for me and my past experiences, waitresses in restaurants are very forgiving when I explained I was from Canada where iced tea tastes completely different. In recent years, those restaurants which are licensed by Coca-Cola are serving raspberry-flavored Nestea iced tea which is also made in a factory and tastes very good.

Man, you need to try the real thing!  If you are ever in a gas station and see Tradwinds or Arizona brand iced teas, look for the Southern Sweet Tea.  It's not quite the real thing, but it's a close as you'll get from a factory.  McDonald's has been selling in too, at least in the south.

Personally, I think the official drink of Carcassonne should be either something that originates from the city of Carcassonne (France, naturally) or else something completely original, invented purely for this game.

Gantry I like this one then as it fits the bill nicely.

Wild Pig Merlot.

Located in the Languedoc area, the vineyards spreadfrom the banks of the Rhône river in the East to the city of Carcassonne in the West, from the foothills of the Massif Central mountains in the North to the Mediterranean sea in the South.

Ale.  I prefer Belgian style.

Indeed! Trappist beers are the best there are.

I usually drink diet dew with some squirts of cherry flavoring in it.

If I'm in a mood, I'll throw down some 100 proof schnapps or some whiskey.  Maybe some beer, just depends.
