A body of water and a cold drink are almost synonymous with one another, especially during the summer. Lakes, oceans, rivers, creeks, and even puddles seem to induce thirst. If you spend time on a boat, you probably pack a cooler full of tasty beverages to help quench your thirst when the sun and waves dictate it. When you cover your toes with coarse white sand and watch the seagulls spread their wings over the great oceanic expanse, you likely are clutching a drink wrapped in a koozie. Many women even pour themselves a glass of wine at the end of a long day when they take a soak in the tub.
No body of water calls for a rejuvenating drink quite like a pool. Whether you are lounging poolside with a good book, if you have your feet dipped in with friends and family enjoying some snacks, or if you submerge yourself for a water workout; a pool calls to people of all ages and the crystal clear water will make even a camel parched. Hence why you should have a substantial arsenal of delicious drinks options you can rely on throughout the summer. Here are a couple of delicious drinks sure to please swimmers and pool loungers alike.
Plain lemonade is like a summertime anthem, but adding fruits or herbs is like fireworks after a great Fourth of July party. Spice up your lemonade with fresh cut lemons or strawberries, frozen raspberries, sprigs of mint, or cubes of watermelon. If you are looking for an easy adult cocktail you can add a splash of vodka to any regular or flavored lemonade.
Staying hydrated never tasted so good. Adding things like sliced cucumber, fresh herbs, and fruit to plain, filtered water not only adds flavor but also adds nutrients. There are several water bottles on the market which help extract the maximum amount of flavor from your chosen ingredients, like this one, and keeping a water bottle handy when you spend time by the pool is key to staying hydrated.
A Sweet Smoothie
Blending fruit, yogurt, juices, and even green leafy vegetables create a liquid concoction jam-packed with essential nutrients. A smoothie is a perfect way to replenish electrolytes when you are outside by the pool for the majority of the day. Plus, when you incorporate vegetables like kale or spinach you can often hide them to make the smoothies kid friendly.
Mixing chopped fruit with your favorite wine is a creative way to dress up an already delicious adult beverage. A white wine and peach sangria is a fun way to embrace some of the local Georgia produce.
