If you’re looking for a unique way to slay your summertime thirst, we’ve brewed up some innovative ideas just for you. Check out our crash course in summer mixology—bevvies with benefits!
Sure, there are a lot of bevvies out there—from water to iced teas to coffees. But sometimes we long for more to satisfy our inner thirst, something that will give us a little extra … energy perhaps? If you’re not sure what that extra might be, then check this out.
In this feature, we’re not suggesting the spirited kind of brew, or the caffeinated kind. Although both might lend themselves to a different kind of summertime “imbibement,” we’re suggesting perky pick-me-ups that offer elements of calm on a cicada-filled evening. Or fluid essentials for a long wandering beach stroll or mountain hike. These healthy iced tea and coffee recipes beg to be sipped on hot afternoons and evenings.
The clincher? Be sure to use spring or purified water. Avoid chlorinated tap water where possible. And look for the “Healthy hit” in each recipe to siphon off a little added wisdom. Whether you feel it or not, you’re giving your body goodness—with benefits you can savour and enjoy.
