Icy Cold Hydration That Stays Cold Longer Without Coolers Or Bags Of Ice

Fill various sized bottles and jugs half full of water. Place bottles (not gallon jugs) so that they lean (keep stable) to one side while freezing (without lids). Keep gallon jugs upright (also no lids). When ready to use fill with fresh water and screw lids on snuggly and you're all set to go!
Depending on whether you're using at home or on various length trips you have an icy cold drink that stays colder than fast melting ice cubes. The angle results in greater surface area of ice and the thinner top of ice on one side melts a little faster to provide additonal drinking water over time!

For icy cold drinks take a water bottle and half fill it with a favorite drink drink or water, except carbonated drinks. Freeze it solid. Add more of the same drink when ready to drink it so drink stays very cold and as the icy part melts it doesn't water down the flavor since it's the same drink.
Drink cold water, it BURNS CALORIES! Crazy, right? Well "studies show" that your body takes longer to warm up cold water and it burns calories in doing so(: Drinking room-temp water will fill you up, but it doesn't burn the calories like the icy cold refreshing aqua!9
