Summer Sipping – 7 of the best drinks to cool down this Summer

Ice Tea

Sweetened black or green tea flavoured with lemon, or sometimes peach. For something a little different ,try iced herb or fruit teas. Iced peppermint is really refreshing.

Iced Coffee

Coffee purists might not encourage you to pour espresso over ice, but frappes are delicious! Iced lattes are a smooth choice, as is sweet Vietnamese style coffee with condensed milk.

Bubble Tea

Like iced tea but sweeter and fruitier, this tea is served with fruit juice balls, chewy tapioca pearls or coconut jelly.

Kombucha

A fermented tea based drink with a zingy, sour kick. Full of beneficial bacteria, thisdrink is available in a range of sweetness levels.

Mocktails

Traditional cocktail recipes without any alcohol, most restaurants now offer these intensely flavoured drinks.

Smoothies

Fresh and full of fruit (and sometimes vegetables too), these drinks are tasty and also contain some fibre.

Cordials

These syrups extract the maximum flavour from plant material and come in a huge range of flavours.
