For those of us trying to rain back the booze intake, these drinks are AHHHMAZING and super easy to make. I recently discovered that you can add fresh juices from places like Pressed Juicery, JuiceBox or Suja brand from your local grocery store to homemade drinks. Thanks Olivia Newport Wellness - this makes too much sense. DUHH! 

I don't know about you but during the summer months I notice I get thirsty a lot quicker. Did you know that the second your brain acknowledges that your dehydrated you are already 4-6% dehydrated and humans cannot function once they reach an 8% dehydrated state for a prolonger period of time. I remember learning that in college and thinking I need to up my water game.

In the summer the hot weather and sweating more all contributes to dehydration. If you're someone who doesn't like plain water adding cucumber or lime to water can be a great option and these recipes in particular are great for parties and a way to make your guests who aren't drinking feel included in the fun beverage club ;) 

 Lemon or lime (or mixed!) La Croix bubbles with freshly sliced lemon & lime.

 I can't remember where I saw this recipe but guys.... cold brew over coconut La Croix. Try it, like right now. You're welcome ;) but probably not a good example of a beverage that will keep you hydrated.

 If you're crunched for time you can buy a pre-made fresh juice like Evolution or you can make your own with lime juice, ginger and plain or lime flavored bubbles. Muddle ginger and lime together in martini shaker. Pour over icy cold bubbly.
