Everyone is practically blasting their air-conditioners right now because the temperature is just too high! People are building their portable swimming pools just to ease out the heat. But another way to fight off the temperature is to make your own cold drinks. Always hydrate yourself not just with water but with other beverages as well. Here are some of the best ideas we’ve gathered.
Best cold drinks this summer
First on our list, of course, is our all-time favorite lemonade. Add honey and ice and you are all set. Other versions include milk, lemon’s pulp, and peel. Feel free to make your own based on your preference.
If you love coffee, drinking it hot right now might not be the best option. You can add almond milk, cinnamon, and nutmeg. It’s like having your own Starbucks at home.
