Healthy and Unhealthy Summer Drinks

Summertime — when you’re hot and thirsty — is drinking time, whether your taste runs to antioxidants. It goes well with fruit, club soda, and if you must, any clear alcohol.

Any full-sugar soda is a poor summer choice, Cross says. A soft drink can contain 16 teaspoons of sugar — and that sneaky corn sugar, at that. Sugar makes you thirstier. All sodas, even diet, she says, contain a lot of chemicals that do nothing for you. “I do like soda for cleaning stuck-on pots,” she says. “Just soak overnight!”

“Summer drinks,” muses Blue, “should have plenty of ice, fruit juice, and sparkle.”

Cheers to that!
