Back in the day, the drinks I remember were sangria (alcoholic) and herbal tea (non alcoholic). Magic Mountain Tea had very hip packaging. The only two sangrias that I remember were Real and MadriaMadria.

Today? I drink black tea mostly (camomile if I'm feeling in the mood). I don't consume much alcohol... white or red wine on holidays or very special occasions only.

In the 60's people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.

I'm a hippy but don't remember meeting any others in the flesh.

I drink teas, green tea for the anti-oxidants. Chamomile to calm down. Ginger is an anti cancer cure.
I mix some hi protein supplement into OJ or cranberry/grape daily. Sometimes I mix it into a blender with milk and add Ovaltine and choco mix for a boost.
I drink a lot of water to flush my liver till the pee comes clear with no infections in me.
When cantalope is in season I juice the rind and all in my Champion juicer for the enzymes. Sometimes carrots and apples are the mix.
If egg nog is in season, I get as much of that as I can.
Once in a great while a soda.

That's about it.

I like Puerh tea.(when I can get it) Usually we drink whole leaf china black or gunpowder green.
Peace only requires you seek it, for it to be found. That is unlike a lost remote, which often involves moving furniture.

Personally I like to try and stay away from sodas (mainly becuase the way they exploit thier workers...) and because it is not good for my body in anyway. Water is the way to go, pick up the book "Why your body needs water" its great. And yeah some teas every now and then, green is my favorite and stay away from those Sobe's I tried one of their green teas and it was disgusting.

I drink A LOT of water... usually all I drink during the day, especially at work. Sometimes, I will buy an Orangina for a treat.
