Feel free to experiment with different brands and options, and you’ll end up finding the perfect one for you. With the range of flavors on offer, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t give it a go.

Natural Cola

Coca-Cola’s trademarked secret recipe is an ingenious bit of marketing from one of the most recognized brands on the planet. Although the exact recipe of the famous drink may not be known to the general public, the internet is full of home-spun recipes that taste just as good. Some of the recipes are complicated but most are surprisingly straightforward. You will certainly be able to impress your guests if you produce a home-brewed cola as an alternative accompaniment to a meal. Remember though most colas require a lot of sugar so should be drunk in moderation.

Watermelon Lemonade

This drink is more about the presentation than the taste. Anyone can head to a shop and buy a bottle or two of lemonade but this nifty presentation can help the drink stand out in people’s memory. Simply cut the top of a watermelon and scoop out its contents making a vast drinking vessel. Finish the look off with a couple of straws and a cocktail umbrella, to give your drink a beach vibe. The flavor of the watermelon’s juices will mix well with the lemonade and the scooped out pieces of fruit can be served as a delicious healthy treat too.


Kombucha is a fermented black or green tea that has become incredibly popular in recent years due to its purported health benefits. Kombucha can be made at home but you should be cautious as you do not want to consume fermented ingredients unless you know they are safe. If a batch has a bad odor then it should be discarded rather than consumed.

Infused Water

Finally, remember even a simple jug of tap water can be made much more appealing with a little bit of thought. Infusing the water with slices of cucumber or some mint leaves will give the water a pleasantly refreshing taste Infused water should be made 2-4 hours in advance of it being drunk to get the full taste of the flavors coming through. Alternatively, you could mix your water with the herbs or fruit you wish to add and leave it in the fridge overnight. Also, why not try making some of your own clear ice with this recipe on dramson. Clear ice creates a far better effect than the usual cloudy ice. It can enhance the colors in the drink, such as the green from the cucumber and mint leaves.
