The best thing to have during the heat is ice water with lemon in it. This is very refreshing and why I think that lemonaide was invented. I think the more water we take in the better off we are. All the drinks with sugar in them are not really refreshing and isn't good for you anyway..

Yes indeed, sugar can make your saliva think and it'll make you more thirsty. Freshly-squeezed are the best. Thanks, and happy mylotting to you my friend!

Same here, I avoid softdrinks for they contain high level of sugar. A nice choice for you to not drink softdrinks often. Thanks friend for your comment.

Plenty of Water ~ I ofter take a bottle of Ice cold water in my room (where I often stay). Juice/Shake ~ This is my favorite drink when we go to restaurants. Ice Cream ~ Just cant live without them. Halo - Halo ~ If I dont have enough money for Ice cream. Yum! Taking a bath usually refresh my body from extreme heat. Swimming is the best, but I cant always go the the beach or pool.

I sleep badly in the summer, since I work nights. If I want something to send me to sleep, I will have a lager and settle with the TV, sitting on the sofa. In no time I will be asleep. If looking for a refreshing drink, I'll go for fruit juice. Something like pineapple, or mango. Someone recently raised a discussion here about cucumber water, which they said was quite refreshing. Lightly abrase a couple slices of unpeeled cucumber and drop in a pitcher of chilled water. Leave a while to infuse.

I agree. It' still hot. Drinking lots of water will help you cool down. also fresh citrus drinks will make you feel refreshed. Freshly squeezed, ice-cold orange, dalandan or kalamansi juice would really help with the heat. If you have lemons, you could also make lemonade.

Lemonades are very tangy and hits the spot of the heat! Try out my mix which is freshly squeezed orange, 1 spoon-full of honey and a pinch of salt, it will give you the right tang and refreshing to the body as well. thanks for the comment and happy mylotting to you my friend.
