7 Refreshing Drinks to Keep You Hydrated During Singapore’s hot weather

Singapore can get extremely hot and humid, but you don’t need to limit yourself to drinking water if you want to stay hydrated. Here are 7 delicious and simple drinks to make at home to beat Singapore’s hot weather.

1. Fruit iced tea

Are you a huge fan of iced tea? This fruit iced tea recipe uses different fresh fruits and black tea for a drink that will have you feeling healthy and rejuvenated. Use the Thermos® Mug to keep your drink cold for at least 6 hours.

2. Cranberry orange punch

We all crave a refreshing drink when it’s hot outside, and if you love making fruit punches, this cranberry orange punch is a must-try. The natural sweetness of cranberry and orange juice perfectly complements the fizz of a club soda. Serve this on the Thermos® Carafe and invite your friends over for an afternoon of drinks and snacks to beat the heat together.

3. Chrysanthemum rosebud tea

Who said you’re only allowed to have flowers as décor in your home? If you’re looking for a refreshing drink with hints of floral notes, this chrysanthemum rosebud tea will give you just that. The beautiful chrysanthemum flower with rosebud combined with red dates makes for the perfect tea to help you relax after a busy day. Brew your tea in the One-Push Tumbler where it can stay hot for at least 6 hours, ensuring your drink keeps you hydrated throughout at your ideal temperature. 

4. Ice cold watermelon shake

Watermelon is a delicious fruit, so turning it into a shake is a smart way to beat the heat. All you need is a ripe watermelon, some sugar for added sweetness and ice cubes to make the perfect summer beverage. Here’s a simple recipe that you can try. Put your drink in a condensation-free Thermos® Tumbler Cup, so you can enjoy it for a longer time, fuss-free.

5. Iced jal-jeera

Jal-jeera is a classic Indian beverage, where “jal” means water and “jeera” means cumin. If you’re adventurous with flavours, you might be surprised to discover how delicious and refreshing this drink will be. True to Indian flavours, use mint, cumin, and tamarind pulp to make jal-jeera – follow this recipe to get it right. You can also keep your jal-jeera in your Thermos® Tumbler to keep it cold for at least 6 hours to enjoy at your ideal temperature.

6. Red sangria

Red sangria is a classic drink if you want something to freshen you up during a hot summer’s day. You can serve it as a cocktail when inviting friends over or keep some in your fridge as your go-to drink when relaxing at night. The combination of red wine, brandy, and some fruits make this a must-try not only in the summer, but all year round. Here’s a recipe to follow.

7. Blue lagoon

Blue Lagoon is a popular cocktail that originated in Paris. And now you can make it at home using this recipe.
