Water should be the first option to quench thirst! Adults should drink about 8-10 glasses of water a day (about 2-2.5 litters).
Sugar-sweetened beverages (sodas) should be avoided as they are high in sugar. Alcohol beverages should not be the first option to quench thirst. If you decide to drink alcoholic beverages, always accompany them with a glass of water.
