Water is so important during the summer, dehydration headaches are the worst. I have 3 kids (9, 2 and 4 months) The two older ones play so hard I try to get them to drink water to keep them hydrated. They do however love punch (hawaiian punch, ginger ale and rainbow sherbet) as a treat and I love a nice cold Blue Moon with an orange slice as a treat :)

I love anything citrus! But my power-packed refreshing drink is a concoction of 1 part lemonade or limeade, 1 part green goddess juice (or similar juice with chlorella and spirulina) and 1 part kombucha (any brand, any flavor you like). Then I add a packet of Emergen-C with 1000 mgs Vitamin C, plus Vitamin B and minerals. This plus a daily dose of raw, local honey does away with allergies and I haven't gotten sick once since starting this regimen! Plus it is delicious! But you have to make sure none of your juices has any HFCS or other junk!

My fave summer drink is kombucha! I keep my homemade batches in the fridge, so it's always cold and refreshing, and my store-bought bottles are great for road trips or parties. Since tea is my go-to drink in the winter, kombucha is a great cold alternative. But I do love lemonade too!

My wife and I love Sangria made the old fashioned way- without the added alcohol. We use a nice Petite Sirah and add freshly sliced orange, lemon, lime and strawberries along with some plum, blackberry and peaches. It's best to remove the skin of the citrus to avoid bitterness. To this, add a few tablespoons of confectioner's sugar and let it sit for a couple of days. Serve ice cold and add any other flavoring to taste (sodas or juices).

I have four kids. Do you know what my favorite drink of the summer is? Sangria! It's practically a health food with all that fruit hanging around up in there and, bonus, it looks like punch so if I need tomove wine o'clock up a little early I can. Wohoo!

I love fresh lemonade too. I will make a batch and then mash some fresh berries, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, with a little sugar to add to the lemonade to change it up a little.

We love to sip faux cocktails on the patio when the weather turns warm. One of our faves is the Santa Cruz Cosmo: 1/4 cup Santa Cruz Cranberry Nectar 1/4 cup Santa Cruz Sparkling Lemonade Squeeze of fresh lime juice Fill a glass with ice, add the cranberry nectar, then the sparkling lemonade. Squeeze the lime over the top and give it a little swirl to mix.

Nothing hits the spot like a freshly brewed glass of iced tea on a hot summer day. I take water along when I go walking, but as soon as I come back through my door, I'm pouring the tea!

I should have mentioned in my previous comment, my fave is intended for an adult lemonade stand! But it is kid friendly.
