What Do You Drink On a Hot Summer Day?
For best hydration, you want to choose drinks that are water-based with naturally refreshing ingredients such as water, herbal tea and fruit and herb infused drinks.
- mint leaves
During hot weather avoid liquids that contain caffeine, sugar and alcohol, which are known to be dehydrating.
Having said that, one of my favorite summer drinks is Cherry Pink Mocktail.
Vinegar-based drinks can also be refreshing in the summer heat.
Maybe you've heard or had a drink called a shrub, which is a drinking vinegar?
There's also an old-fashioned drink called a switchel.
Switchels were called a haymakers drink, back in the day.
While you can make your own summer mocktails, there are a lot of fun products on the market you can buy to make it easier and more creative.
