Fruit juices are a great way to recharge in the summer; they replenish the salts and minerals lost in the heat, as well as hydrate. Lemon is definitely a favourite of the season. But you don’t have to stick to the same old recipe. You can add more fruits and herbs to the drink and make it all the more exciting and refreshing.

Here are some of our favourite lemonade recipes to enjoy this season:

If you can’t find agave syrup you can substitute it with honey.
