 Who complained about rain? Well, now you have it.

Summer is finally here in full swing and it is hot, humid and muggy in New York City.

Cool off, rejuvenate and replenish with those three refreshing drinks for the office, at home or on your patio.

Here are your three options:

Cold spice drink

5 slices of fresh ginger
Juice from one lemon
1 whole cinnamon stick

Do this when you have time, such as just before you go to bed, so that the flavor can evolve overnight. Before serving, add the juice from one fresh lemon. This drink is not only refreshing, it keeps your insulin levels in balance because of the cinnamon.
