Top 10 Summer Drinks
Last Updated : Mar 30,2017
Warm beverages and cool, refreshing drinks have a way of pepping you up even on the worst of days. While warm beverages like masala chai or coffee are welcome in the mornings and on winter evenings, refreshing coolers work best when you are tired and panting on a busy summer’s day! With the onset of summer, everybody is looking for something cold and refreshing, be it spicy buttermilk, a pampering lassi or a nutritious fruity glassful.
Some like fun and fizzy drinks like Kiwi Margarita while others like nutrition-packed choices like the Watermelon, Pineapple and Guava Drink. Some drinks have a soothing and aesthetic flavour, such as the Coconut Rose Drink, while others have a snazzy tangy flavour, like the Minty Jamun Ginger Capriosca. The best thing about refreshing summer coolers is that you can make it as you like it – there is no specific regulation as to what you can or cannot do. These classic, must-try drinks recipes will not only please you with their great taste, but also give you some fabulous ideas and kindle your creative juices, so you can try more combos of your own. Just open your refrigerator, check out the fruits and squashes you have and blend them together to make a fabulous drink.
When your juice has fruits that decolorize, try to make the juice just before serving so that it will taste and look fresh. At the same time, there are some drinks that you can prepare and take with you to work, so you can sip on it when you are tired. Summer is also a time when kids are home, and perpetually hungry and tired after too much playing! So, you can turn to juices and other refreshing drinks to solve their sudden hunger problems in a healthy and jolly way.
Indeed, refreshing drinks are part and parcel of the summer scene! So, what are you waiting for? It’s time to take out the fruits and tall glasses. That’s the best way to stay cool this summer.

This is one super-tangy drink that will send a ripple of freshness down your throat, refreshing every cell in your body!
The Minty Jamun Ginger Capriosca features a rare combination of white jamun, mint leaves and ginger juice topped with soda to make it peppier than ever. Make sure the soda is very chill to experience the best of this White Jamun and Mint Drink!
An energetic combination of kiwi with lemon makes this citrus drink perfect for the summer. The bright green colour of kiwi crush, speckled with tiny black seeds adds a dramatic tropical flair to the Kiwi Margarita. The unique tangy-sweet flavour of this slushy drink goes well with a salt-rimmed margarita glass. The texture and flavour are best when served immediately, as the lemon juice tends to become acrid over time.
A peppy drink with a luscious mouth-feel, the Watermelon, Pineapple and Guava Drink is not just refreshing but also satiating enough to act as a small snack!
The watermelon gives the drink a nice, breezy touch while pineapple gives it a tangy taste and guava gives it a creamy and thick texture that is very pleasing to the palate.
The trio really work together beautifully. A dash of black salt highlights the strengths of these three fruits, giving the juice a really perky taste. Make sure you serve it chilled.

Ayran is a rejuvenating yoghurt-based drink, very popular in the Middle Eastern Regions, especially Lebanon and Syria. You will be surprised to see that milk and yoghurt are combined with garlic to make Ayran.
However, the proportion of ingredients is such that it gives this drink a very soothing flavour and mouth-feel, which you will enjoy thoroughly. This drink must be served chilled.
Serve as an accompaniment to Lebanese
dishes like Mashkool Rice
, Stuffed Onion Cups
An invigorating glassful that is sure to shake your taste buds out of their reverie! Made with a brilliant combo of pineapple juice and coconut milk bound together by vanilla ice-cream, the Virgin Pina Colada is a refreshing drink with a tangy flavour balanced well by the soothing nature of coconut milk. Using readymade pineapple juice instead of a fresh one makes the taste more predictable, removing the risk of tartness.
Here is a luscious drink that soothes and rejuvenates your senses with its chunky texture and peppy flavour.
The mellow taste of muskmelon is aesthetically sweetened with honey, but the real twist comes with the addition of black salt, which totally transforms the flavour from soft to snazzy!
The texture of this drink, which is both soft and chunky, is also very enjoyable. Stomach-friendly muskmelon is good for those with acidity, and this drink is sure to add some positivity on a hot and tiring day! Honey is optional and you can skip it, if it does not suit you.

and Date and Banana Shake
Perhaps because it is everywhere, we fail to realize the full potential of tomatoes in their raw form. This lovely fruit lends a luscious mouth-feel, vibrant colour and unique taste to any juice or salad that it is added to.
Many of us make tomato juice, but only alone, without combining it with other fruits or veggies. Here is a fabulous juice, which combines the tang of tomatoes with that of lemons, to make a super refreshing glassful of Tomato Lemon Punch!
A dash of cumin seeds powder and the right amount of sugar help to highlight the flavours of these fruits beautifully, making the juice even tastier.
One thing to note about this juice is that the tomato pulp tends to settle to the bottom of the glass, so serve the juice immediately upon preparation, and also provide a spoon or stirrer with the juice.
Also try other exciting punch recipes like Mixed Fruits Orange and Ginger Punch
and Guava Punch
The tingling flavour of coconut water along with the pulpiness and soothing flavour of coconut meat combine beautifully in this drink to delight your taste buds and refresh your senses. Coconut Paw Paw is a wonderful drink for endurance athletes as it gives a lot of energy for long workouts.
Chilled coconut water has a more electrifying flavour, so you can refrigerate the coconut water before making this drink, but remember that you must not store it after preparation. Once you have combined the coconut water and coconut meat, the Coconut Paw Paw must be had immediately.
The spicy notes of ginger and pepper and the tangy tones of lemon juice make this guava drink a super hit! Unlike the common guava juices that are overwhelmingly sweet, this one has a well-balanced and peppy flavour due to the innovative combination of ingredients. Cooking the guava with sugar softens the fruit and also makes it taste richer. Despite the dash of ginger, the Spicy Guava Drink will be pleasing to kids too, due to the innate sweetness and creaminess of guavas.
