The sun has got her hat on – hip, hip, hip, hooray! We’re positively beaming at the weather and it’s got us thinking about all the summer-ready recipes we can’t wait to get creating.
Today we’re looking at the most refreshing drink recipes we can think of for quenching our thirst during those summer heatwaves. Here are three of our absolute faves:
What’s more summery than a big bowl of deliciously refreshing punch? Fresh, yummy and easy to make, this recipe is perfect for garden parties.
In a bowl, mix the lemon juice and sugar until the sugar dissolves. Transfer into a large serving bowl, add the other liquid ingredients, fill to the top with ice and stir gently. Serve immediately, with herbs and lemon slices, if you like.
Everyone loves a health kick in summer and this easy to make juice is a fun way to get little ones to enjoy their greens.
Put the vegetables in a deep bowl with the apple and lime juices and blitz with a hand blender (or in a blender or food processor) until as smooth as you can get it. Tip into a glass and drink as it is or dilute with coconut water for the consistency you like.
If you’re looking for a refreshing party showstopper, you can’t go wrong with this tasty homemade lemonade served with crushed ice in its very own watermelon bowl.
Of course, if you want to spice things up a little for a summer party, you can always add alcohol to any of these recipes – just don’t get the adults’ punchbowl mixed up with the kids’ one…
