Are you a vegan or just want to avoid alcohol? Or are you looking for a refreshing beverage that is not just for kids? TastyMediterranean has you covered with a list of non-alcoholic Mediterranean Drinks that might be just what you’re looking for.
A refreshing, cold drink made from a cucumber, mint and yogurt mixture, tùrmida can be served as an appetizer with pita or as a first course with bread and olive oil.
Tùrmida is a non-alcoholic beer marketed as an alternative to alcoholic beverages. It has been praised for its “clean finish” and low calories while still packing a flavorful punch.
Apple mint lemonade:
If you’re tired of the same old lemonade recipe, but want to keep it refreshing and simple, then this recipe is for you – a homemade lemonade with a surprise!
The best drink for a hot summer day, basil lemonade is simple, refreshing and easy to prepare.
Depending on the amount of liquid you want your drink to have, just add either 3 or 4 basil leaves per glass. Then fill the rest of the glass with water and lemon juice.
Mix in a little bit of honey if you want some extra sweetness or add mint leaves for an herbal twist! Try it at your next barbecue.
Beetroot and carrot slush:
This is a really fast and easy recipe for cold drink that will take you less than 10 minutes to make. Plus, it has an amazing color! A thick juice can be made with beetroots and carrots – the perfect cooler on a hot day or when you are feeling weak after a long hike in the hills.
Lemonade is so delicious and healthy, it’s the perfect thirst quencher on a hot day or as an ice-cold mixer on a warm winter evening. One of my favorite lemonade combos is blackberry and lemonade – it has a slightly different flavor than traditional lemonades because of the tangy and slightly sweet berry taste mixed in with the tartness of fresh lemons.
This refreshing drink can be enjoyed as an after-dinner drink or as a palate cleanser between courses.
Cucumber and mint water:
Cucumbers are low in calories, while packed with fiber and water. They’re also a great source of vitamin K, which aids calcium absorption. If that’s not enough to convince you to try this refreshing treat, cucumbers also have a natural diuretic effect. This means they flush toxins from the body and help you release excess water weight.
You can try it with ice or without it as an appetizer or as any other drink you wish to have.
Also called “ice-cubes,” these are basically crushed ice that has been mixed with a little water or fruit juice – this is what the Italians call Sorbetto.
