Stay Hydrated and Stay Healthy!
Fresh Cool Summer Drink You’ll Love
With the heat of summer comes the need to stay hydrated for optimal health. We admit that while drinking plain water is truly the best bet, it sure is nice to have a flavorful beverage to enjoy either alone or with friends. We’ve put together a couple of delicious drinks you’re sure to love – and guess what, they don’t contain any added sugar or alcohol and easy to make!
Summer Cherry Fizz
This drink can be made without the soda water and it will still be as cool and refreshing as ever! We’re choosing frozen cherries for this tasty drink. The frozen cherries at as little ice cubes to help your drink stay cold longer! According to the USDA, a cup of cherries contains only 90 calories and contains healthy Vitamin A and C, as well as great antioxidants. So, let’s make this cherry fizz, shall we?
- 2 quarts of water (either soda water or plain water)
- 1 cup of frozen cherries
- Juice of half a lemon (or several lemon slices)
Combine the fruit and water in a pitcher and let it sit in the fridge for at least an hour.
Stay cool this summer and protect yourself from dehydration and heat-related illnesses. If you’re out and about, take water with you in a bottle so you always have some within reach. At home, keep some cool water in the fridge and avoid caffeinated beverages and alcohol which can dehydrate you. We’re so glad you took the time to check out this recipe. When you make it let us know what you think! We’d love to hear from you!
