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: 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:

● Berries

● Ripe nectarines or peaches coarsely chopped

● Pitted cherries

● Watermelon

● Melon

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!
