Refreshing Non Alcoholic Drinks
As the weather warms up, refreshing summer drinks become more and more appealing. While many summer drinks contain alcohol, it is possible to enjoy a delicious and refreshing non-alcoholic drink.
One way to do this is to make a fruit spritzer by simply combining fresh fruit juice with carbonated water and ice. For a more sophisticated drink, mix equal parts fruit juice and club soda, and add a splash of lime juice.
If you are looking for something even more refreshing, try combining fruit juices with iced tea or ginger ale. By experimening with different combinations of ingredients, you can create a refreshing fruit infused drink that is perfect for any occasion.
Herbal Non Alcoholic Drinks
There's nothing quite like a refreshing drink on a hot summer day. But if you're looking for something a little bit different than the usual suspects, why not try an herbal non-alcoholic drink?
Herbal teas are a great option, and there are endless variations to choose from. For something a little bit sweeter, you could make a fruit cordial or an infused water. And if you're feeling experimental, you could even create your own unique concoction by mixing together different herbs and fruits.
Click on over to check out my Mint Orange Lemonade or Sparkling Peach Sangria recipe. Both are delicious non- alcoholic drinks that are great ways to enjoy the flavor of the season without any of the drawbacks of alcohol.
So next time you're looking for something to quench your thirst, step outside of the box and give an herbal non-alcoholic drink a try. You might just be surprised at how much you like it!
Tips for Preparing Summer Drinks
- If using fresh herbs, use a muddler to enhance the flavor of the herbs before adding them to the drink. You could use the back of a spoon if you don't have a muddler.
- Use fresh fruit for garnishes. Even if you choose to use frozen fruit for some of the recipes, always garnish with fresh fruit.
- Try freezing lime wedges in ice cube trays. Add pieces of fresh mint for added flavor to your ice cubes. Also try lemon wedges, sliced strawberries and blueberries!
- Make sure the drinks are chilled before serving especially when adding ice cubes. If you add ice cubes to a warm or room temperature drink the ice will start to melt and water down the drink.
