Here I share a collection of the refreshing non- alcoholic drinks for summer. In summers when the sun seems to stay in the middle of the sky forever and scorching every bit of water in you. These drinks work like rehydrating armor against the heat. Not only they keep cool and hydrated but replenish the nutrients lost in sweat and keep you energized and focused.
Any celebration or party cannot be complete without refreshing summer drinks. These summer drinks use natural fruits, which makes them a far healthier choice than commercial drinks laden with chemicals and preservatives. While I’ll still suggest drinking plain water with fresh fruits for the healthiest summer drink. I understand sometimes, you really wish to add drinks on your table.
These drinks are made with fresh juices which make them a better option than soft drinks. However, I recommend jaggery lemonade or plain jaggery water in summer over any drink as it cools and refreshes you.

Mint lemonade is a very refreshing drink, it is a great source of vitamin C and helps regulating blood pressure and keeps you cool. Since this drink contains a lot of sugar and the tartness of lemon can cause also cause soar throat to some, I suggest drinking this occasionally.

Although I’ve shared the easiest method to give you the finest Sharbat, this Sharbat takes some time to make. Plus it is a seasonal fruit and available only in few regions of the world. The tangy, tasty flavors and sweet aroma of this fruit are worth the efforts to make this delicious drink.

This post has many suggestions for a different combo of ice-cream flavors and drink. This is very easy to make as you just mix up the ice cream with a soft drink to make it. This drink is a good option for serving in summer dinner and I don’t recommend this for daily intake as it has a soft drink loaded with calories.

Can there be a collection of non alcoholic summer drinks without the king of fruits on the list? This is my go-to summer drink for a breakfast smoothie, evening snack and, even a midnight snack. Mango is generally acidic and not really cooling but when you pair it with milk and ice. It makes super refreshing and nutritionally filling drink. YUM!
Refreshing Kiwi drink
Kiwi is another refreshing drink that helps digestion and even prevents sickness by boosting immunity. The sweet aroma combined with tangy taste of this fruit is a treat to the soul.
