15 Non Alcoholic Summer Drink Recipes – Best Homemade Cold Drinks & Mocktails

Healthy homemade drinks for summer

Nothing beats a warm and bright summer day than a refreshing, brightly colored, drink. If you are holding a summer cookout or backyard party, then having some refreshing alcoholic drinks (margarita, anyone?) might be on top of your mind. However, there may be instances where some of your guests (specifically children) are not allowed to consume alcoholic drinks. And there’s nothing wrong to cut back the booze for a few days, right? With that said, some family-friendly and colorful refreshing drinks will be perfect for all ages! Feel free to whip up your own smoothies and slushies. But if you want to make your drinks healthier, then you can do so by using fresh produce as the highlight of your drinks. You can use some tropical fruits, veggies, and herbs and infuse them in your iced teas, smoothies, and water!

You can easily make your own basil lemonade which is the perfect summer drink. Cucumbers and mint also go hand in hand to make a refreshing spritzer. You can also have your fair share of tropical fruits such as watermelon, oranges, pineapple, and more to create your own tropical-flavored slushies. Adding some herbs such as rosemary, basil, and mint to cold drinking water can give it a very refreshing taste. 

Mocktails for Kids

If you are having a family gathering or backyard party during summertime, then your guests will most likely crave something to refresh them amidst the heat. This goes to children as well especially if they are running around and playing under the sun. To help them feel freshened up, you can always present them with colorful and healthy refreshing mocktails. A mocktail is a non-alcoholic drink that is a mixture of fruit juices and other flavored drinks. But because flavored drinks, especially if it came in packets, are usually high in sugar, you may want to increase the water ratio more. Or you can always use sparkling water as a healthy alternative.

You will want to make your mocktails vibrant and pleasing to look at if you are going to present it to children. So using tropical fruits such as watermelon and pineapple will be a perfect choice to add a bright color to your drinks. You can whip up your own watermelon slush, strawberry lemonade, an orange fizz, and a variety of natural fruit smoothies and slushies.

You can also always add some herbs such as mint for an extra flavor. And don’t forget to add some fun details such as colorful straws, cute drinking glasses, and more.
