As the daughter of an Englishwoman, and as someone who lives in a
house with three natives of the American South, I assure you that
American-style iced key is not the perfect drink for a hot, sunny
day.  Personally, I prefer to drink things that don't dehydrate

caffeinated, high-acid beverages -- including Coca-Cola.  So it
isn't a very popular opinion.
