One of my biggest habits when warm days come back is to prepare all sorts of refreshing or fruity drinks – even if sometimes pushing on the fruits flavors is a bit risky for the thirst -. My 2 musts to get rehydrated – excepting coconut water when I come back from my runs – are usually: lemony water with fresh herbs as basil or mint, and green iced tea, which I prepare in advance by making it infuse in a big teapot, then I stock it in the fridge. For this maracuja, nectarine & ginger light lemonade, I had to add maple syrup to enhance the tastes, which were too “boring” in the sugar-free version. This refreshing drink can be kept 2 days maximum in the fridge and has to be drank at a very fresh temperature. Endless gooseberry addict, which I was used to devour in my Dad’s garden when I was kid, I also added some to the preparation. The taste is not strong at all, but you can add them as well if you want some good looking lemonade.
