On hot days, there’s nothing more refreshing than a nice cold drink. Sometimes, commercial drinks can contain too much sugar or artificial ingredients, but making your own drinks at home is a great way to control the ingredients and taste.

On that note, here are three easy options to make at home: lemonade, hibiscus water and iced tea. These drinks are refreshing, delicious and perfect to enjoy at any time of the day, so get ready to prepare them and enjoy a refreshing drink!

Lemonade: Lemonade is a classic and very refreshing drink. To make it, you only need lemons, water and sugar. Squeeze the juice from the lemons into a pitcher, add water and sugar to taste, and mix well. Serve with ice and a slice of lemon for garnish.

Agua de jamaica: This drink is made with hibiscus flower, which is easily found in Mexican food stores or online. Boil the hibiscus flower in water with sugar and let it cool. Then strain the mixture and serve over ice. You can also add a little lime juice to give it a citric touch.

Iced tea: Iced tea is another refreshing and easy option to make at home. Boil water and add your favorite tea leaves. Let them infuse for a few minutes and then remove the leaves. Add sugar or honey to taste and let cool. Serve with ice and a slice of lemon or mint for garnish.
