Here in Las Vegas, temps max out at around 115 in the summer, but stay above 100 for most of June-September. To keep cool and hydrated during my summertime walks, I take a completely frozen bottle of water with me. It starts melting within about 5 minutes, so I have water available to drink when I need it. It continues to melt throughout my hour-long walk, giving me water continuously. And bonus, it cools down my hands and keeps the heat-induced swelling to a minimum!

Fill a jug with lid 3/4 full of water (ie from milk, ice tea, water) and freeze...stash it in your cooler before grocery shopping....food will stay cooler and as the water melts you can refill everybody's cup or bottle. This works great at the beach too.
I even freeze a small water bottle whether I am home or running about...fun to have an ice cube in the bottle throughout the day. (a full bottle will over expand) 148
Since I love gatorade and usually down the whole bottle within minutes, I took one of my empty bottles and filled it with water. Each bottle is 32oz, so by freezing my water and drinking 2 full bottles a day. I am getting my (8) 8 oz of water intake in matter of minutes.334
