Strawberry Coolers Keep You Hydrated & Refreshed!

*Disclosure- I received the mentioned product courtesy of the sponsor for the purpose of this review. All opinions are genuine, based on my experience with the product, and have not been influenced by promotional items.


We have a lot of outdoor projects going on at our house. Jason has been going non-stop on rebuilding our deck, and I am in the middle of relocating some of our perennials, chopping down dying bushes, and getting a space ready for my summer tomatoes. As happy as I am about the weather finally heating up, when you are doing back-breaking work in the heat, it's so important to stay hydrated! Water is the best thirst quencher, but sometimes you want a little flavor to sip on. That's why I think this Strawberry Cooler recipe from Golden Blossom Honey is the perfect summertime refresher! 


A lot of flavored drinks are loaded with sugar, which makes me much more thirsty when doing outdoor work. I love that this recipe is sweetened with natural foods, like honey, strawberries and ginger root, so I get a sweet beverage that keeps me cool, refreshed and hydrated without the added junk.

Ingredients

1/2 cup GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
2 quarts of water
16 ounce package fresh strawberries, thinly sliced
1-inch piece fresh ginger root, peeled and sliced

    1. I did mash up my berries after I took the photos so I could get more strawberry flavor with each sip. I didn't think of adding lemon, but love the idea! Will definitely try it with my next batch!
