There’s something about warm weather that demands tasty, refreshing beverages enjoyed on patios, picnic blankets, hiking trails, or the beach. After exploring the aisles of Trader Joe’s, we put together a list of Outside’s favorite drinks. These summertime sips are refreshing, unique, and hydrating. 

Sparkling White Tea

Sparkling White Tea with Pomegranate, $3.99

When you want something sparkling but LaCroix isn’t cutting it, this Sparkling White Tea hits the spot. This tea doesn’t have any added sugars or sweeteners and the natural pomegranate juice offers a tart, pop of flavor. 

Sparkling Coconut Water

Sparkling Coconut Water with Yuzu, $3.99

How can you improve upon coconut water? Make it sparkling and infuse it with yuzu puree. Yuzu is an Asian citrus fruit similar to lemon, but a tad less sour. It can reduce inflammation, boost heart health, and improve mood. This drink is one of the most hydrating on our list, making it a great choice for outdoor athletic endeavors.

OOlong Tea

Golden Oolong Tea, $1.29

Oolong tea has been touted for its benefits for years. It’s high in L-theanine, which can improve brain function and sleep quality. TJ’s unsweetened Golden Oolong has subtle floral, earthy flavors. It’s stronger than green and black tea with 50mg of caffeine in one bottle. We love it as an occasional coffee replacement, especially on a hot day. 

Cold brew iced tea

Cold Brew Iced Tea Black Tea + Lemon, $2.69

Another tea on our list is TJ’s Cold Brew Iced Tea, made with black tea and lemon juice. While summer sweet tea can involve boiling water, steeping, squeezing lemons, and stirring madly, this drink requires little to no effort. Plop a tea bag into cold water and… That’s it. For this reason, it’s great to bring on the go for hot girl walks, hikes, or picnics.  

Trader Joe's Jalapeno

Organic Jalapeño Limeade, $2.29

If you love a summertime spicy margarita jalapeño but need a break from tequila, TJ’s Organic Jalapeño Limeade is for you. This drink has enough heat for that classic spicy flavor, while also being very drinkable. It’s made of organic lime juice, organic cane sugar, and organic jalapeño powder.
