Refreshing non-alcoholic summer drinks

Hi! It’s Sara.

Summer parties are often filled with sweet, alcoholic drinks that can lead to weight gain and unbalance your blood sugar levels. It’s not always easy to know what to drink instead without feeling deprived. I’ve got a few delicious and refreshing alternatives for you to try.

Strawberry Lemonade

Serves 8

  • 2 litres water

  • 8 lemons, squeezed (around 280 ml)

  • 1/2 -3/4 tsp liquid stevia (Click HERE to buy liquid stevia)

  • 250g strawberries, sliced

In a large jug combine water, lemon juice and stevia. Simply stir in sliced strawberries and serve over ice. A gorgeous, on-track drink. Enjoy!

Cucumber, mint + lemon fizz

Serves 6

  • 1.5ltr sparkling water

  • half a cucumber, sliced

  • 10 mint leaves

  • 1 lemon, sliced

Put all the ingredients in a large jug, chill and serve.

Sparkling Cherries

Serves 2

  • 4tbsp Cherry Active (Click HERE to buy Cherry Active)

  • 500ml sparkling water

Add sparkling water to the Cherry Active and serve with ice.

Sparkling lime water

Exactly as it sounds … Sparkling water with a good squeeze of fresh lime juice over ice.

Simple and refreshing – and you can guarantee a pub will have the ingredients (but likely you’ll need to remind them about the fresh lime and not cordial).

Garden Sour

  • Seedlip Garden (a distilled, non-alcoholic drink*), 50ml

  • Cloudy apple juice, 35ml

  • Lemon Juice, 15ml

  • Cider vinegar, 5ml

  • Sprig of rosemary & thyme

Seedlip is premium distilled non-alcoholic drink. The price may make you wince (it’s no cheaper than buying alcoholic spirits) but it’s hot news this year and making an appearance in all the top bars… Find it at www.seedlipdrinks.com

This isn’t perfect, because it does contain some fruit juice, but only a little. Enjoy!

Sparkling Kombucha

Kombucha is a healthy alternative to sparkling soft drinks known for being full of naturally occurring vitamins, acids, and beneficial bacteria. Making it is actually pretty easy.

Learn how to make it by clicking HERE. Alternatively, you can buy it ready-made.

Want to try before you invest your own time in making it? Don’t blame you. I like Equinox Kombucha (www.equinoxkombucha.com).
