Well, ok, it is not hot that often here in Germany and especially in the Ruhrpott where we live. But if it is for a few days, you have to make the best use possible of it. So we don’t have a pool or a garden or even a balcony ( 🙁 very sad) and since it is too hot to stay in your apartment and even worse at university, you have to find something. We found summer drinks.
It is even too hot to eat. Usually at those temperatures I don’t wanna eat anything but fruit right out of the fridge. That is so great. Watermelon or peaches or strawberries, whatever I can get:) But nothing refreshes you like cool summer drinks. Whether it is lemonade, infused water or iced coffee. Cold is always nice.
We drink a lot of water, well, Lars more than I do but I try my best. Just pure water is sometimes so…tasteless. So just add some fruit and mint and it becomes something healthy, great and tasty. And its so much better than coke or whatever because I don’t add any sugar, there is really no need for sugar at all. The lemonade is not that healthy but really good as well. And I don’t wanna talk about the iced coffee’s calories that would be depressing, I think it might even be worth a whole meal. But sometimes one needs that, right?
On my las shopping trip through our city I found these glasses and I really love them. They look so nice and because of their attached drinking straws with a lit you don’t get any insects in your drinks. And you can reuse the straw. Great idea.
Today I’m gonna introduce you 3 of my favorite summer drinks. Just one thing: you shouldn’t drink everything you prepared for a picture. Those 3 balls of vanilla ice cream in the iced coffee were too much for my stomach 😀 It tasted great but I had bellyache on a new level
You can always add some (crushed) ice to it but I think they melt too far and make it too watery .
enjoy the drinks, Jana
