Sick of Water? Here Are 10 Hydrating Drinks That Aren’t Boring.

Sick of Water? Here Are 10 Hydrating Drinks That Aren’t Boring.

As summer rolls into full swing, the only thing you’ll probably hear more than “don’t forget sunscreen” is “drink more water.” We’re all for chugging two gallons of water a day, but there’s only so much water a person can drink before it starts to get, well, boring. These are the bevvies we’re hydrating with all summer long:

Beam Elevate

Beam tackles hydration from all angles with no-added-sugar hydration powders that taste like refreshing fruits and double as other functional supplements as well. The Variety Pack contains three different products designed to energize, promote recovery, and even support immune health (on top of intense hydration, of course).

This is a sparkling water for all the senses. Their organic botanical blends are so flavorful that they don’t need any sugar to take you on a trip to flavortown. Is that vanilla? A hint of tangerine? Fields of blueberries? It’s all in the mix. You’ve never tasted sugar-free sweetness like this before.

If you’ve never tried sparkling tea, this is your sign. Minna makes organic teas blended with vibrant pineapple, aromatic passionfruit, juicy mango, ruby-red hibiscus and bubbles. The perfect beach drink, we’re planning to sip on these all summer long. 

Liquid I.V.

If the name is any indication, Liquid I.V. isn’t playing around when it comes to serious hydration. Their Hydration Multiplier is a great-tasting, non-GMO electrolyte drink powder that contains 3x the electrolytes of traditional sports drinks with 5 essential vitamins. According to their website, it can even provide the same hydration as drinking 2-3 bottles of water.

Plain water is just alright. That’s why Ruby makes hibiscus water that doesn’t compromise on flavor, and has benefits to boot: antioxidants, vitamins and electrolytes. Made with zero grams of  sugar and zero calories, it’s organic, gluten-free, plant-based, kosher… need we say more?

Something and Nothing

Alright, we know that we’re talking hydration here, but Something & Nothing is our top choice to use as a cocktail mixer while lounging poolside. Made with natural juices, extracts, and botanicals, these low-calorie seltzers come in refreshing and crazy unique flavors like yuzu and hibiscus rose.

When it comes to hydration, Hydrant knows what they’re talking about. Their electrolyte-packed mixes are made with minimal ingredients and essential electrolytes like sodium, potassium, magnesium, and zinc, and lightly flavored with real fruit juice powder. We always have a couple packets of Hydrant on hand for real-deal hydration whenever we need it.
