Hydrating Drinks To Keep You Cool This Summer

Ah, summer—the season of sunshine, backyard barbecues, and of course, thirst-quenching beverages. While reaching for a cold soda or sugary juice might seem tempting, why not opt for something healthier and more hydrating? Let’s jump into some fun ideas.

Infused Water

Kick plain old water up a notch by infusing it with your favorite fruits, vegetables, and herbs. Think slices of cucumber and mint, lemon and lime wedges, or even strawberries and basil. Not only does infused water add a burst of flavor, but it also provides an extra dose of vitamins.

Iced Herbal Tea

Brew up a batch of herbal tea, let it cool to room temperature, then pour it over ice for a refreshing summer sipper. Experiment with different herbal blends like peppermint, chamomile, hibiscus, or lemongrass for a variety of flavors and health benefits. Add a squeeze of lemon or a drizzle of honey for extra sweetness.

Homemade Lemonade

There’s nothing quite like a glass of ice-cold lemonade on a sweltering summer day. Mix freshly squeezed lemon juice with water and a touch of sugar or honey, then pour over ice and garnish with a slice of lemon or a sprig of mint. For a twist, try adding other citrus fruits like lime or orange.
