Ice water is refreshing, but sometimes you just want a little flavor in your glass. It’s tempting to reach for a sugary soda or a boozy cocktail, but those aren’t your only tasty options when it comes to summer drinks.
1. Cucumber Mint Water – You can mix this right in your glass or in a pitcher. To make a single serving, put a few slices of cucumber and a mint sprig into your glass, add a handful of ice, top off with water, stir, and sip!
3. Homemade Raspberry Soda – In a juice glass, muddle a small handful of raspberries, top with ice and soda water. Stir well to combine before you drink!
4. Basil Lemonade – Lemonade is a sugary treat, and cutting it with soda water helps cut the sugar without sacrificing taste. Combine 1 part lemonade with 1 part soda water in a pitcher. In each glass, muddle a few leaves of basil. Add a handful of ice and fill the glasses with the sparkling lemonade.
5. Citrus Soda – You can do this in a pitcher or in individual glasses. Over a handful of ice, combine 1 part orange or tangerine juice, 1 part grapefruit juice, and 1 part soda water. Mix and serve.
