Craving an ice-cold drink? We know that there’s nothing more refreshing! Instead of reaching for your go-to soda or tea, give one of these healthy and cool drinks a shot. Our tip? They pair excellently with some crushed ice. So, here are two recipes to get started – the first for a Honeydew Lime Cooler, while the second is for a Cherry Smash. Check them out below.

Honeydew Lime Cooler

  • 1 small honeydew melon, seeded and cut into one-inch cubes
  • 1/2 cup seedless red grapes
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 cups seltzer water

Place the cubed melon and grapes into the freezer for about an hour. In a blender, combine the frozen melon and grapes with the lime juice and honey. Process until smooth. Fill glasses until half full and then top off with the seltzer water. Stir and serve immediately.

Cherry Smash

  • 1 cup fresh or frozen cherries, pits removed
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 4 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 3 cups seltzer water

Divide the cherries, mint leaves, and sugar into four glasses. Mash these ingredients together with a wooden spoon or muddler. Stir in the lime juice and fill each glass with ice. Top off with the seltzer and garnish with fresh mint leaves. Serve immediately.
