COLD drink to go with donuts?

What's a good cold drink to go with donuts?

I suppose milk comes to mind, but is there anything else?

      1. I'd go with milk or iced coffee, but cold drinks in general don't work well with donuts as they cause the grease in the donut to congeal on the tongue.

          i was just going to say this! i tried the other day making homemade donuts, and then drinking a glass of water (because i'm lactose, so milk was out of the question) ... it felt like i had a layer of grease on my tongue that i couldn't get rid of. so i waited about 20 minutes, and made a pot of coffee to go with it, and waited for it to get cold. haha.
