When we think of monsoons, hydration isn’t the first term that jumps to our minds. The excessive moisture content in the atmosphere and beady drops of sweat on our forehead make us feel like there’s enough water in our bodies too. But trust us, this may just be the biggest monsoon myth ever. Although the abundant rain brings with it the feeling of happiness, it may surprise you to know that your body may actually be severely dehydrated. Drinking water constantly throughout the day is about as important in the monsoon season as it is in summers.
Here, we have collated a list of some interesting drink recipes for monsoons. This includes hot drinks, which are a must since they alleviate seasonal flu and boost immunity too; as well as some juicy drinks which can be had at room temperature too.
