5 Mocktails To Enjoy This Summer!

Easy recipes to try at home

When it comes to dealing with the heat and humidity I focus on 2 things; spending a little more time at home than I normally do and keeping myself hydrated. Last summer, after receiving a lot of admonishments from my husband for not drinking enough water, I decided to track my water intake during the day using an app. My mobile used to ring every hour to remind me of my commitment towards Akhil (this is the first time I am introducing him through my blog and let's stick to his name for now)! lol

So this season I decided to deal with #summers not only with water but with a few refreshing drinks. I am a very difficult person when it comes to trying something new in food and otherwise but I've been committed to making more #mocktails at home now. This season I mixed different ingredients and flavors to create these 5 drinks which I think I will continue to have. And I have to accept that a little credit also goes to Akhil for his inputs.

Here are the #recipes of my 5 current favorite mocktails that are refreshful, easy to make, and are heavenly in summers.
