Your Favorite Summer Drinks Here!

It’s hot. It’s summer. I want to get out of here!

As you can tell from my recent posts, summer for me is ‘get-away’ ‘vacation’ and ‘recharging’ time.

I just feel like get out of the city and enjoy the sun and outdoor as much as I can and explore the unknown.

Unfortunately, this year is a little busier than usual for me, so I can’t go far. (sigh…)

But, at least in the weekend, packing up with some DIY favorite drinks and have a little party with close friends around a pool seem like a natural thing to do.

Here are some cool drinks you can enjoy anywhere this summer!

1. Frozen Dark and  Stormy

Spicy ginger beer shines in this grown-up slush.

2. Strawberry Daiquiri 

Sweet strawberries are even better with rum.

3. Mojito Slushies

Add the lime juice, agave, mint leaves, lime zest, and rum to a blender. Blend until smooth. Fill the blender to top with ice and blend until slushy. Pour into glasses, garnishing each with a sprig of mint and a lime slice.


4. Fruity Punch

A mixture of quava juice and orange juice topped with lime soda. Awesome taste!

5. Watermelon Sangria

Looks like watermelon is on demand this summer. Put watermelon, moscato, rum, lime juice and zest, and sugar in a blender and work it until smooth. Refrigerate until chilled. Garnish glasses with lime slices and serve.

Try these refreshing summer drinks this weekend! And let us know what your favorite summer drink is in the comment!
