As the summer sun blazes down on us, staying hydrated is the need of the hour. The current season also brings you varying beverages that not only quench one's thirst or provide overall health benefits, but also replenish your soul. For those looking to ditch the sugary sodas and artificial juices, here are five healthy summer drinks you can easily whip up in your household.

Cucumber Mint Detox Water

Start with something simple yet truly refreshing. Cucumber mint detox water is the epitome of summer in a glass. Slice a cucumber into thin pieces, add a few mint leaves, and let them infuse well in water overnight. Due to its inherent cooling properties, the drink not only hydrates but also aids in detoxification and digestion.
