Four thirst-quenching summer drinks ideas to fill up your stainless steel drink bottle

Stainless steel drink bottles are perfect for storing icy cold water to drink whenever you need it. And we all know that our bodies need plenty of H2O to stay healthy in scorching summer heat.

But did you know that water doesn't have to be the only drink your bottle holds? Try these delicious summer drinks ideas as a treat on a hot day:

Fresh and fruity ice water

For those who love water as it is but want to add a bit of zing, try adding some fresh seasonal fruits. Fill your stainless steel bottle with plenty of ice cubes and add summer fruits like strawberries and a slice of orange and nectarine. Add a squeeze of lemon for extra punch.

Not-so-naughty mojito

Try a kid-friendly take on this much loved cocktail drink. Blend lemonade or soda with a dash of sugar, a squeeze of lime and top with chopped mint and sliced cucumbers. Delicious and refreshing!

Classic lemonade with fruity ice cubes

There's nothing better than cooling down with a cold lemonade after a hot day at the beach, and adding berry ice cubes is a great way to spice up this old classic. Simply dice seasonal berries, add to an ice tray and top with extra lemonade, then freeze – then you can pop them in your stainless steel bottle once they're frozen!

If you're feeling really adventurous, why not try making your lemonade from scratch with real lemons – yum!

Banana & Greek yoghurt smoothie

A banana smoothie is a delicious way to cool down and great if you're feeling like something more substantial. This one's got a bit of a healthy kick to it.

Blend a ripe banana, half a cup of plain Greek yoghurt, a dash of milk, a few ice cubes and any seasonal berries you feel like. Think raspberries, strawberries or blueberries.
