Whether you're underage or not, we are all reminded how dangerous too much alcohol consumption can be, especially in the summer months when our bodies dehydrate in the heat. Instead of resorting to a cocktails loaded with alcohol, here are some other non-alcoholic beverages worth trying to quench your thirst. My favorite are the virgin pina coladas my mom blends together when my family and I are out back lounging by the pool. Not only are they icy and sweet, but the fact that they lack alcohol allows me to have a few without feeling any effects (except cravings for more!).
