Delicious Non-Alcoholic Summer Drink Recipes

As promised in my last blog post Alcohol Free for 60 Days, I have prepared a few absolutely delicious non-alcoholic summer drink recipes! It's so important that we're staying hydrated, especially in this heat. We are well into the local patio season but we need to remember to rehydrate with water! Alcohol will only dehydrate us more. There are many negative implications of being dehydrated or not drinking enough water in the heat.

A few negative effects of not drinking enough water include:

  • Fatigue, tiredness, lethargy

  • Impaired elimination of toxins through the skin (which can lead to premature wrinkling, dermatitis, psoriasis, and eczema)

  • Elevated blood pressure

  • Constipation

  • Dull or dry skin

  • Puffiness or swelling and inflammation

  • Joint pain or stiffness

  • Weight gain

  • Digestive disorders such as ulcers, gastritis, and acid reflux

Read more here about how consuming clean water is an essential part of a healthy lifestyle.

Without further ado, here are your deliciously hydrating summer drink recipes. Enjoy!
