A chilled drink with lemon in it is an ideal way to ward off unbearable heat during summer season. Whether it is an iced tea or mojito, the citrus fruit can be included in your drink to refresh you.


Four lemon based drinks that you can relish this season:

Lemon watermelon ice tea: Take watermelon chunks, blend them well. Add lemon juice to it and then mix it with the lemon flavoured ice tea and drink it to quench the summer thirst. "Both fruits are refreshing and light. These help to fight heat stroke," said Vivek Harbhajanka, owner of Whitewaters Cafe.

Lemon mojito: Harbhajanka recommends this one, which is made by mixing mint leaves, sugar, lemon, sprite and crushed ice. All ingredients are perfect to beat summer heat.

Lemon putu monkey: Nikita Khattar, owner Bora Bora, suggests a drink that has lemon along with other hydrating ingredients. "Lemon putu monkey is a blend of coconut water with pineapple and lemon chunks which will keep you hydrated for sure," she said.

Lemon pina colada: Khattar suggests one more drink for summer. "It is a mix of coconut syrup, lime juice syrup, coconut water and lemon chunks. It is healthy, refreshing, cold and perfect to beat the heat," she explained.
