The summer season is all about two things: love and parties. The summer wedding, of course, encompasses both into one big, romantic event with a signature beverage to boot.
As wedding planners polish off their menu plans for the summer season, many healthy, organic drinks are starting to top of the list. Coincidentally, we've also been focusing on healthy alternatives to the traditional summer drink. A couple weeks back we raved about our favorite sugar free ginger mint lemonade. Before that, Emily Murphy of Pass the Pistil shared her Ultimate Garden Fresh Mojito recipe with us (it’s to die for, by the way).
Today we’re continuing the theme by tackling a short list of organic drinks that will bring your summer wedding to the next level. If you're not among the betrothed, treat yourself to one of these organic beverages anyway! That's what patios are for, afterall.
Each of these healthy drinks are light and refreshing with a unique organic twist. That means they’re sustainably made and environmentally friendly — plus they’re low in sugar and therefore much less likely to cause a hangover (but just in case, here are some vegan breakfast ideas that will cure just about any ailment).
