5 COOL SUMMER DRINKS TO BEAT THE HEAT

Updated on May 25, 2015

As the mercury shoots up in the hot summer season, we find ourselves reaching out for water. But water alone doesn’t seem to quench the thirst, especially when you have just reached home after a long battle with the scorching sun outside. So here are a few refreshing drinks to help you chill when you feel completely parched.

1. AAM PANNA (MANGO DRINK)

It is a delicious Indian drink made of raw mango pulp. This sweet and sour summer cooler will refresh you from within. It is a natural heat wave shield to keep the summer scorch at bay.

Method:

Boil the raw mangoes and take out the pulp. Mix it sugar and chilled water (or jazz it up a notch by adding soda). Add a pinch of salt and pepper for the tinge. Your refreshing mango drink is ready. Dress it up with a slice of lemon and mint leaves.

2. ICED TEA

It is an easy to make instant drink which will soothe you instantly and keep you cool in the hot summer.

Method:

Boil water and ginger (a small slice) in a pan. Add sugar and tea leaves. Strain the water in a jar and refrigerate for a few hours. Your iced tea is ready to serve. You can also add a few drops of lemon for a refreshing flavour.

3. WATERMELON CRUSH

Watermelon is a must in summers. This fruit, with 95% water content, will quench your thirst like nothing else.

Method:

Remove the peels of watermelon and grind the rest to form a puree. Refrigerate it. Garnish with a slice of lemon and a few mint leaves. Serve chilled.

4. LEMONADE

A classic summer drink, Lemonade never goes out of style, or kitchen. It not only kills the heat but also cleanses your system from within.


Method:

Squeeze a fresh lemon and add a pinch of salt and sugar (to taste). Now add chilled soda and stir well.

5. COCONUT WATER

Coconut water is one of nature’s best gifts for human kind. It is rich source of vitamins and electrolytes that rejuvenates the body from within. Embrace this wonderful gift to keep yourself cool this summer.
