Yes, it’s not even the summer season yet, but it won’t be long before summer arrives, and the way things are going, we can imagine that it will be hot, hot, hot! Of course, when the temperatures are high and the heat is strong, we must all protect ourselves and try to get as much shade as we can. It’s a priority – and even while you and your family are enjoying the heat (especially after a long and hard winter season), it doesn’t mean that you can relax your measures of protecting yourself from the sun and heat.
This brings us to our next concern: the importance of hydration. It is very important to keep yourself hydrated, and the best way to keep hydrated is to have a beverage nearby. And when it comes to beverages, nothing beats good, old-fashioned lemonade. There are even suppliers who can supply you with ready-made juice, so you don’t have to squeeze anymore! And if you have a restaurant or café or are having a big party or celebration, you can order from these suppliers – all you have to do is click here. But there are other lemon-based drinks you can make nowadays, so here’s a list of tried-and-tested lemon juice drinks to refresh and energize you this summer.
Of course, a list of top lemon juice drinks would not be complete without lemonade, so we have just the recipe for you. It is good for four people, so if you are making lemonade for more than four, you can double the ingredients. There is a wide variety of lemonades out there, and your favorite grandma may even have her secret recipe, but this recipe may just as well beat hers for its tanginess and sweetness. All you need is three tablespoons of lemon juice, a tablespoon of honey, and 1.75 cups of water. You can add three tablespoons of sugar and six basil leaves for that unique, winning taste. Mix everything in a pitcher, but make sure to crush the basil leaves first so you can release their fragrance. When you have mixed everything in the water, add two cups of crushed ice, and voila! The perfect lemonade drink to beat the heat.
Lemon juice and apple cider vinegar
Another great drink – and it’s got a lot of antioxidant properties, too – is the next drink on the list: a combination of lemon juice and apple cider vinegar. For this, you would need 1.5 tablespoons of lemon juice combined with two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and two cups of water. Mix it with three tablespoons of sugar, a tablespoon of honey, and two ounces of lemongrass, and you’ve got yourself a hit. Add two cups of ice, and you’re all set. This drink is tart yet surprisingly fragrant and sweet, and both the kids and the adults will love it.
Lemon juice and watermelon juice
It is the ultimate thirst-quencher, and it’s super as a summer drink. You need a tablespoon of lemon juice, 24 ounces of de-seeded and peeled watermelon, eight mint leaves, two tablespoons of sugar, and two cups of ice cubes. After juicing the watermelon, mix it all in a pitcher, add the sugar, and serve. If you want, you can change the watermelon to cucumber and replace mint with basil.
