Healthy & Refreshing Summer Beverages made with Honey

The scorching heat of the sun from the beginning of April leaves everyone irritated and drenched in sweat.

While you can’t avoid going out in the sun, the best way to beat the heat will be to keep yourself hydrated, especially during the day. But drinking plain water is not always welcomed by your tastebuds, especially for the kids.

Rather than grabbing a glass of chilled water or any other soft drink, preparing summer refreshing drinks with natural ingredients like honey, fruits, mint leaves, and more seems to be a healthier option.

If you are planning a party or a get-together, including these delicious and lip-smacking drinks will be a great way to care for everyone’s health.

That being said, we have compiled a detailed recipe guide to help you prepare an assortment of easy summer drinks using the healthiest ingredients.

The top beverage and drink recipes for summer season you must try

1. Sweet and Tangy Cooler

If you have a sweet palate but suddenly craving something tangy, this summer drink recipe will help you pamper your taste buds to the fullest.


  • Pomegranate and tangerine 

  • Himalayan Natives Multifloral Raw Honey 

  • Water/Soda 


  • Grab a fresh tangerine and pomegranate from the local markets, ensuring they are completely ripe. 

  • Slice the orange into thin pieces and take out the pomegranate seeds properly. 

  • Now add these into a glass and mash them coarsely so that the fruits can release their juice. 

  • Pour a few ice cubes and add a tablespoon of Himalayan Natives Honey.

  • Water and ice cubes 

  • Himalayan Natives Multifloral Raw Honey 

  • Black salt (optional) 


  • Start with brewing the tea leaves of your choice in hot water and let it infuse properly.

  • Now filter the liquid into a tall glass and add five to six cubes of ice. 

  • To increase the sweetness of the beverage, use the pure Himalayan honey in your iced tea. It is a great alternative to processed white sugar and will infuse a unique taste to the drink. 

Optional: You can also add a pinch of black salt and pepper to balance the taste profile.

3. Sweet and chilled watermelon juice

Another great summer drink option you will have in hand for this coming season is the watermelon juice combined with the goodness of pure Himalayan honey. 


  • Watermelon 

  • Himalayan Natives Multifloral Raw Honey 


  • Grab the watermelon and cut it into small cubes. Do not forget to remove the seeds properly as they can leave a bitter aftertaste. 

  • Now, put those cubes in a blender and blend till you get a smooth paste. Strain it through a sieve to obtain the clear, red watermelon juice. 

  • Once done, pour it into a glass and add a few teaspoons of honey to the juice. Stir the mixture properly until the thick, viscous honey dissolves completely, and refrigerate it for a few hours before drinking.

4. Raspberry and Mint Refresher Drink

One of the healthy summer drinks you can drink every other day while boosting your immunity is the one made from seasonal fruits. While the ingredient options are quite diverse and never-ending, this refreshing drink will only need a few fresh raspberries and mint leaves. Both these are known for their complex taste profiles, and when combined, you will feel relaxed and calm despite the rising mercury levels outside.


  • Raspberry 

  • Mint leaves 

  • Cucumber

  • Himalayan Natives Multifloral Raw Honey 


  • To prepare this, start by adding the raspberries, a few sliced cucumbers, and freshly plucked mint leaves to the glass and muddle them together till they release the juice. Do not go overboard as that can make the juice taste bitter. 

  • Now add a little water and high-quality raw honey to balance the tanginess appropriately. 

  • Mix everything properly and fill the rest of the glass with chilled water. You can also add a few ice cubes if your cold tolerance levels are pretty high.
