Stay Hydrated This Summer with These Delicious & Refreshing Alcohol-free Drinks
We all know it's important to stay hydrated, especially in the summertime, but drinking tons of water can get a bit dull. While the requisite lemon wedge is always nice, we’re often left wanting more. Let’s explore some ways you can jazz it up a bit and transform your water from hydration to libation.
Here's a simple formula with some recipes to try:
MUDDLED FRUIT + HERBS + LIQUID BASE + CITRUS + OPTIONAL ADD-INS
MUDDLED FRUIT: Soft fruits work best. A drink muddler is meant for this task (the kind they use to muddle fruit in glasses for mojitos), but you can also place fruit in a bowl and break it up with a fork or use a mortar and pestle to gently break apart fruit. These fruits are well-suited for the task:
● Ripe nectarines or peaches coarsely chopped
● Pitted cherries
HERBS: Here are a few of our favorite combinations – just chop coarsely and muddle with fruit before adding liquids.
● Mint + Watermelon
● Basil + Peach
● Rosemary + Grapefruit
● Sage + Blackberry
● Lemon verbena + ANYTHING!
