As the weather turns HOT, we are looking to cool down.  I don’t know about you, but this girl here can only drink so much water before becoming BORED! 

I like chocolate drinks and warm ciders, hot teas and such – but when it is nearly 100 degrees in the shade, I have to compromise.

These Top Drink Recipes for Summer are perfect for quenching my thirst and cooling my body down. Plus, they are all alcohol free!  So, even my kids can enjoy these delicious beverages.

Best Summer Recipes for Everyone!

Since all of the drinks in this list post are alcohol free, they will make great summer drink recipes for kids as well as adults.

Easiest Quick Summer Drink Recipe:

The best way to have a fancy summer drink without a ton of fuss is to muddle a tiny bit of fruit into a glass of water.  That’s it! 

Or, if you are looking to fill up a drink dispenser like the ones below, you just slice some fruit and then fill the jug with water.

Best Fruits for Water:

When I go on vacation in the summer, I love to stay at hotels that have complimentary, fruit-infused water.  However, it took me a long time to realize I could also make my own! LOL! 

Yeah, not always the brightest crayon in the box over here. 🙂

Anyway, not all fruits taste very good in water – or at least not to me.  Wellness Mama tells us how to create the best fruit-infused waters here. My favorite are strawberry, cucumber, and blueberry.
