Note from Lois:  Eliminate sugary drinks containing chemicals from your family's diet for much better health and wellness.  Veronica gives some wonderful alternatives.  Natural concentrated juices can be diluted a good bit and still have lots of nutritious flavor, thus making them stretch a long way.  So Refreshing!

Sweet Southern Cherry:
Tart Cherry and Apricot or Peach Juices

Sour Cherry Splash:
Tart Cherry and Lemon Slices with a splash of Apple Juice
Refreshing Lemon Mint:
Lemon Slices, Mint Leaves and a green tea bag (you can leave out the green tea if you like)

Blueberry Blast:

Tropical Sensation:
Coconut Milk, Pineapple Juice, and a splash of Apple Juice
