Refreshing drinks without alcohol
If there is a refreshing homemade drink par excellence, that is the lemonade. The queen of summer drinks since the world is the world, thanks to how good it is and how easy it is to prepare. Have you never done it? Well, don't let another second pass!
To make it you need very few ingredients: 2 lemons, 1 lime, 8 glasses of cold water, ice cubes or crushed ice and sugar to taste.
Once you have them, squeeze the juice of the lemons and the lime, mix it with half the water and the sugar (or if you are a fit person of those who train daily, you can use another type of sweetener). Pass the mixture through a strainer and add the rest of the water. This will leave an ultra liquid texture without lumps. Now you just have to add a lot of ice, and enjoy it!
This is one of the most refreshing and healthy drinks you can make. And it is that it only has fruit (and a little honey, which never hurts to sweeten our lives a little).
To make it, you need: six oranges, two apples, two pineapple slices and a lemon. Juice the apples, remove the skin and the core of the apples and blend them together with the pineapple slices, squeeze the lemon and add a little of its previously grated skin to give it a special touch. Mix everything in a blender or blender and add ice.
The honey or sugar is completely optional, since the glucose in the fruit works as a natural sweetener. So if you dare to add absolutely nothing but fruit, all the better! You can always make up for that lack of sweetness with one of these sweet perfumes for women.
Watermelon is one of the queen fruits of summer, so our list could not miss a refreshing homemade drink that had it as the protagonist.
It is ideal since it is one of the fruits that carries more water so it quenches your thirst like no other. In addition, it is so easy to do that in just five minutes you will have it ready.
To make it, you need: half a kilo of watermelon, half a lemon, ice cubes and a little sugar. Once you have all the ingredients you just have to remove the seeds from the watermelon, cut it into pieces and put them in a blender. Add water and the juice of half a lemon. Beat until you get a homogeneous mixture. Put the mixture in the fridge before serving, so that it is even colder. Absolutely delicious!

Refreshing drinks with alcohol

Drink originally from Spain that has captivated the whole world. Refreshing and delicious, to make it you will need: 1 bottle of red wine, 2 oranges and 2 lemons; 4 peaches (if it is not in season they can be substituted for apples), 3 tablespoons of sugar; soda or Cointreau (both are optional) and finally ice.
Pour the bottle of wine into a jug full of ice (the colder the sangria, the better it will be). Add the juice squeezed from the oranges and lemons, the cointreau, the soda, the sugar and the peaches cut into pieces.
We could not finish this list without mentioning the quintessential summer cocktail, the most requested refreshing alcoholic drink in the world: the mojito.
To make it you need white rum, brown sugar, limes, spearmint leaves and soda. And of course a lot, a lot of crushed ice!
The mojito has a somewhat different preparation from the rest of the homemade refreshing drinks that we have taught you previously. And it is that the ideal is to prepare glass by glass. We explain ourselves: Put a little brown sugar, mint leaves and a piece of lime in a glass. Crush and mix everything with a mortar until the sugar dissolves. Stir in the crushed ice and add the rum and soda. Finally, decorate the glass with pieces of lime and mint for even more flavor. It is incredible! We don't know anyone who doesn't like mojito.
