Sometimes in the heat of summer, the only way to beat the heat is to stay fully hydrated, but let’s face it water can get boring! So we all tend to look for other things to quench our thirst and sometimes I like something a little more exciting than a sports drink.
Depending on the occasion I might like a cocktail, a smoothie or a frozen drink. So, I went in search of some new drink ideas to get ready to beat the heat with this summer. Here’s what I found!!
Strawberry Banana-Nana-Colada – Do you like pina coladas? I’m humming Jimmy Buffet here, but really these look so yummy and easy to make so that’s definitely a win-win in my book.
Copycat Sonic Ocean Water – Can you say refreshing? This is so yummy and refreshing you will want it everyday! It can be addictive. The kids will love it too.
Caramel Macchiato Shake – You had me at caramel. Wow! This one looks like it came right out of Starbucks or something. You mean I can make this at home? No way! Can’t wait to try it.
Caramel Brownie Milkshake – Another caramel variety that is yummy to boot! Brownies, caramel, oh so rich.
Patriotic Layered Drink – Whether it is the time of year to celebrate our country or not this patriotic layered drink will be fun and refreshing. And it sure is beautiful to look at too.
DIY Mango Iced Tea – Iced tea is something everyone can love and appreciate. This is just a twist on that with the fruity mango flavor. It is worth a try!
Strawberry and Pineapple Smoothie – You know I promised a smoothie recipe or two. This one combines two yummy fruits. Simple, delicious and a perfect summer afternoon treat.
Cherry Cheesecake Smoothie – I told you I’d have smoothies. Here’s another one and let me just say that who can resist a smoothie with cheesecake in its name?
Blue Pineapple Mango Martini – This is the cocktail I promised as well. It looks fun and sassy and I’m sure it packs a punch in taste as well.
Georgia Sweet Tea and Lemonade Ice Cubes – This is two treats in one with lemonade ice cubes and sweet tea. Wow that’s double the refreshment. Can’t wait to try it.
So if you’re like me you’re not sure which of these yummy drinks to try first. It may take us all summer long, but I am definitely going to try them all. How about you?
