Sugarcane juice for the summer

Summer is officially here in Saigon. The weather is so hot and the sun never gets tired of its consistent self-appearance. In this time of the year, dehydration is undoubtedly your worst dilemma. In order to prevent that from happening, we need to make an extra effort to always hydrate our body by drinking lots of water. However, to most of us, drinking water is something we don’t love to do since water doesn’t appeal much to our taste buds. Instead, we resort to drinking soda & other over-the- counter carbonated drinks to quench our thirst and replenish our fluids, which in turn only makes the problem of dehydration worse.
Sugarcane juice is extracted from pressed sugarcane and can be used as water alternative to beat the summer heat and dehydration.  Although sugarcane juice is made out of entirely sugar; still it is considered safe and healthy since it is unrefined sugar. Not only does it hydrates the body, but also provides the energy that we need to stay active under the sun. Sugarcane juice, or nước mía in Vietnamese, is a very popular beverage here in Saigon. Luckily, foraging for nước mía here is never a pain in the neck because you can see sugarcane juice stalls almost in every corner of the streets. It taste really delicious and very refreshing. They always serve it with a lot of crushed ice, while some add lemon juice to balance the taste. More than anything else, it only cost 3000 VND or $ 15 cents per 250 ml so getting another cup is not an issue.
