Water Bottle Giveaway, Week 2: BPA-Free Nalgene

This week we're giving away a pair of BPA-free Nalgene bottles - one On The Go Tritan bottle (24 oz., $9, reviewed in our Water Bottle Showdown) and one classic 32-oz. HDPE bottle ($6) - to two winners!


One winner will be drawn from the comments on this post. To enter to win, comment here with your favorite non-water, non-alcoholic liquid refreshment for hot summer days.

The other winner will be drawn from fans of Gardenaut on Facebook. We'll contact the winner directly through Facebook's messaging system. If you have a Facebook account, take note: We'll be occasionally offering giveaways through our Facebook fan base, either announcing giveaways exclusively through the site or randomly contacting a winner to see if they want a prize. Become a fan now and you could be our second winner this week! Already a fan? Then you're already entered!

No purchase is necessary for either entry; every entrant can enter using both methods, Facebook and these comments, which means that there is a snowball's chance in hell that one individual could win both prizes! U.S. residents and addresses only, please, and we'll accept entries through Friday, June 13 at 5 p.m. CT. If you leave an email address, we'll contact you using it, but we won't follow links to blogs or profiles looking for one; we will be announcing winners on this blog, as well as sending the names to PRIZEY.

Ice Tea mixed with lemonade. It's awesome.

I love sun-brewed iced tea. Also like to flavor my water with fresh cucumber. Now that is refreshing and super hydrating.

Raspberry lemonade

queenoftheclick said...

I would love to win a more environmentally friendly water bottle. I would actually use it with just plain water. I love plain water in the hot summer. It's almost 100 degrees here in NY.

I am also adding you to Facebook :)

Opera Mommy said...

Unsweetened Iced Tea with lemon!

Reiza said...

I prefer iced coffee, but yeah, that's not gonna help you stay hydrated.

So I'll say pink lemonade. Aside from water, that's what I drink the most of in the summer.

Kelly said...

Lemonade! That's gonna be a frequent answer here, isn't it? :-) There are already a couple really unique creative ideas in other comments, though!

We love limeade! Great giveaway, thanks!

mannequin said...

Iced tea. It's the only drink that I can substitute for soda and be happy about it!

michelle said...

My favourite drink is an icy-cold Coke. I love to stick a can of Coke in the freezer, set a timer for half an hour, and then come back and pop it open. Releasing the pressure in the can,will cause it to form ice crystals throughout, essentially turning it into a Coke slushie of sorts. Mmmmmm.

I have been meaning to get a new "non-toxic" Nalgene since my husband and I literally take them everywhere we go. It would be nice to win one. My favorite beverage would have to be blueberry tea...brewed and then cooled with lots of ice!

Mike Karr said...

I like a giant sized country time lemonade.

Team Morris said...

For some strange reason (probably relating back to my childhood), I crave a cream soda on really hot days. :)

Shelly said...

Does no one drink soda anymore? Or admit to it?

Mine is a Monster Blue energy drink. But I do like a soda every now and then as well...

vy said...

I like to keep it simple with water, lime juice and a splash of sugar. Maybe a little fresh mint, too.

Baxzter's Mom said...

I'm still a big fan of grape Kool-Aid. These days, though, I double up the water so it's not quite as strong. I still use the regular sugar kind, though.

K's Mommy said...

I love a nice cold, iced chai tea. Yum!

Wendy said...

Plain old iced tea with a little sugar! (But decaf, now that I have kids that wake me up early, otherwise I'd be up all night!)

camper223 said...

My favorite drink is froze(slushie)
french vanilla/mocha cappuccino from race trac gas stations. I have children in sports and afterwards they like to get refreshed with green apple or strawberry banana slushies so it has became a family pleasure then we take a mile long walk around the exercise trail. So winning the water bottles would come in handy. Thank you for a chance to win.

Sun tea! Either sweetened with Splenda or mixed with lemonade concentrate. They sell it as (Arnold) Palmer Tea down here. Delish!

girlof80s said...

My favorite non-water, non-alcoholic liquid refreshment for hot summer days is any kind of Gatorade. Gatorade always seems to cool me down on hot summer days. This is a great giveaway and I really hope I win. Thanks.

Brooke said...

For hot summer days, I like Iced Coffee. Second to that would be a Fruit Infused or Mint Infused Water. Those are SOOOOOO expensive!!

Sweet tea is good

Baby said...

Okay - this one requires a bit of timing. I absolutly love diet pepsi. The best way to drink it in the summer is to put it in the freezer until just before it starts to freeze - you'll have to watch your freezer and try a few times to get the timing right. When you open it, ice crystals will form throughout it. YUM! My own pepsi slushie.

BabyMax said...

Ice Coffee! And I need it with a four month old who won't sleep!
