Cool and Refreshing Drinks for Kids

Nowadays you see less and less soda in the children's parties and that is actually very good news. At the same time, it makes us look for something different to offer, something that easies to make for large groups and easy enough to serve during the party. And of course, it's better if these drinks are great for both adults and children because this simplifies the menu.

Here, I leave you three options of refreshing beverages that can be served at your little kid's party. In all three cases, these beverages can and should be prepared in advance and refrigerated until the time of the celebration. Served with ice they are an excellent option to replace refreshments.

Iced Tea

  • Preparation: 10 minutes
  • Serves 4 cups

Boil 4 cups of water. Add 4 tea bags of black tea and let it rest. The longer you leave the tea bags in, the stronger the tea will be. Add 1/2 to 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of lemon juice (approximately 6 lemons). Mix well and serve on ice.

Natural juices are also a great option for kids, the advantage of those three beverages is that they yield more when hosting a large group of people.

Hand on, squeeze those lemons and enjoy these refreshing beverages with the kids. Enjoy!
