It's a scorching summer day and your tongue feels like sandpaper, sticking to the roof of your mouth. You're thirsty and you want to guzzle a tasty, refreshing drink.
Armed with newfound knowledge after reading 5 Things to Know About Dehydration, an article featured in the July 2005 issue of Canadian Living magazine, I used our online recipe search tool to find the best thirst-quenching beverages.

When you've had your fill of water, try these delicious drinks to help you beat the heat.
