Refreshing Non Alcoholic Drinks for Summer

Hot weather brings on big thirst, and these refreshing non alcoholic drinks have your back.  Make them by the glass or the pitcherful, my colorful quenchers are a healthy alternative to sugary sodas and artificially flavored beverages.  

 


 

Frozen Mint Lemonade ~

Refreshing doesn’t even begin to describe the bright, bold flavor of this mint infused frozen lemonade.  I can’t imagine anything better for the hottest, stickiest days of summer!

Star Spangled Fruit Infused Water ~

This is a fun and festive way to keep everyone hydrated all summer long. It couldn’t be any easier to throw together, and you get a nice light flavor from all those pretty pieces of fruit.

Blueberry Lemonade ~

Blueberries and lemon are a stunning pair! I just love the vibrant purple color and berry flavor in this upgraded lemonade.

 


 

Honeysuckle Iced Tea ~

If fruity lemonades aren’t your thing, this honeysuckle iced tea is sophisticated, subtle, and so, so delicious. It’s like the sweetest days of spring in a glass.

Papaya and Lime Agua Fresca ~

The bright, tropical flavors of papaya and lime are an unexpectedly delicious pairing in this fruity drink.  Agua fresca can be made with just about any fresh fruit, so have fun experimenting with new combinations this season.

Iced Sweet Moroccan Mint Tea

This traditional Middle Eastern tea is amazing and it’s a no brainer to ice it in the summer.  Fresh mint leaves from your garden (or the supermarket) give this tea a distinctive cooling, refreshing flavor.  You can change it up by using any of the many varieties of mint.

Layered Juice Ice Cubes ~

A fun project for the kids this summer, my layered ice cubes turn plain water into fruity drink, and each one will be unique.  This is a creative way to wean everybody off soda.

Strawberry Lemonade ~

Fresh strawberry puree sweetens up a classic lemonade and makes it pretty in pink.
