With the Fourth of July right around the corner we can expect a huge celebration here in Jacksonville Beach. Festivities of the day typically include grilling, heading to the beach, and of course, drinking. Consuming alcohol and being out in the sun for hours can severely dehydrate your body, so be sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day (we recommend one glass of water for every adult beverage consumed). Additionally, try adding coconut water to your mixed drinks, which will add electrolytes! Since the holiday falls on a Wednesday this year, we’d like to have you prepared for work Thursday morning - just in case you over do it. This little concoction has been known to help alleviate some symptoms of a hangover. While moderation is always the "key" it never hurts to be prepared! We hope that you enjoy the Fourth and stay safe!
