You've Been Cutting Cakes Wrong, but We Can Teach You the Right Way

Do You Prefer Water Cold or at Room Temperature?

In Aspen, where the altitude is high, the climate is dry, and the June temperatures can crawl into the 90s, one must hydrate or perish. We tried, therefore, to drink at least 10 bottles of water a day. In that process, PartySugar and I discovered we have differing drinking habits: while she reaches for room temperature water ("It goes down faster!" she explained), I always went for the ice cold kind. What's your preference?

room temperature in the mornings if it's not very warm out and cold when it's warmer/hot outside

It depends! Usually, room temp-- but, when it's hot outside or I've just exercised, then ice water is the choice. :speedy:

cold water takes your body longer to digest/absorb because it has to heat it to your natural body temp, i prefer room temp water

Ice water is the most refreshing beverage ever.

cold but no ice, cause then there is too much condensation all over the place. I try to keep bottles of water in the fridge to just grab on the go. I also love those packets of "true lemon" powder to add a little flavor

I like ice cold water in the summer. It hit 99 here (in D.C.) yesterday and it was ridiculously humid, so I was downing lots of water. (I drink much more water in humid climates than in dry climates.)

ice cold, the colder the better! add ice! my old roomie loved tepid water though and never kept her bottles in the fridge...I would never (unless absolutely dying) drink room temperature water! my boyfriend is the same as me, and so we always have bottles in the fridge. but I am just as happy with a glass of water, whereas when he's really thirsty, he really wants a bottle. it's weird.

I also don't like super cold water because it makes me really cold.

Room temp or slightly chilled typically. The only time I really like ice water is when it's ridiculously hot outside and I'm melting.
