Make your summer refreshing!

In the following lines, I have gathered some small “treasures” that you should keep in the back of your mind as you will need them. When will you need them? When you want to quench your thirst after a summer walk. When you look for something refreshing at the beach or at your backyard. When you decide to host a get-together with friends on your balcony or when you just wake up in the morning and want to hydrate and cool down your body.

Also…when you are hungry but do not want to eat. When you want to eat, but you prefer to stick to your diet (well, it's summer after all!). Generally, whenever you need them, these recipes will be there to give you all the hydration, taste, cheerfulness, relaxation, and -of course! - the coolness you desire! Why? Because they are the most super recipes for summer drinks you have ever tried!
