Korean Drinks for the Upcoming Heat ☀️

Summer time is fastly approaching, and with that comes nice, long and sunny days! However, it also means being unbearably hot and sweaty for the next couple of months. That’s why it’s important to know what summer drinks will you keep you feeling refreshed in the upcoming heat!

Grapefruit Ade

Grapefruit Ade, although being a drink one can get year round, it’s most popular in the summer months. A combination of sparkling water (or lemonade) and real grapefruit mixed together and served cold is what appeals to the people. This bittersweet drink is too good to pass up!


Is it a drink is it a dessert?? It’s a dessert you can drink! Sikhye is a traditional sweet Korean rice beverage, when served cold this perfectly sweet drink can keep you cool even in the hottest of days!

Subak Hwachae 

Subak hwachae, watermelon punch, is a blend of watermelon and various edible flower petals soaked in honeyed water or magnolia berry juice. The bright red drink is consumed heavily during the summertime because of its refreshing properties.


When one thinks of the summer the last thing you’d want to drink is a warm beverage. Usually served as a dessert during holidays, the cinnamon punch can also be consumed cold for the summer to help out with the hot temperatures! 


To some, drinking carbonated yogurt might sound weird, to others it’s the perfect way to enjoy the summer weather! Milkis, a carbonated yogurt drink, can be found year round in convenience stores, however this unique beverage is popular in the summer because of its bubbly, creamy texture.
