Ever wanted a fun summer drink when you are so hot outside? Something maybe not too sweet but still refreshing? Then you have come to the right place. I will give you some drink ideas and recipes that you could make over the summer to relax and be rejuvenated.

The first recipe is a hibiscus iced tea equally sweet and sour for a nice healthy tea to lighten your mood. It’s not only sweet and sour, but it has some health benefits too. The author wrote, “help with depression, aid digestion and help with weight management.” Those are just some of the cool perks of this drink. To make this drink, here is the link –

The second recipe is a Cherry – Lime Spritzer, which is another name for a fizzy drink. I have tried these drinks myself, in this one is by far my definite favorite. I love cherries and sodas, so this drink was clearly up my alley. The lime definitely helps spruce up this drink and make it fresher for summer. To make this totally awesome drink, here is the link –

Last, my ideas for some summer drinks are really fruity. You can do a mango/raspberry juice which is very high in vitamin C. A second idea is any fruit that goes with lime… like a strawberry! You could also pair lime with pears and ginger. Those are my ideas for some sweet but thirst-quenching drinks!
