What’s Your Summertime Drink?

Other / Canada

As the temperature rises, naturally, so does our intake of liquids – alcoholic and non-alcoholic alike! Hopefully, there is more non-alcoholic bevvies involved so that we don’t dehydrate ourselves. 😉

Anyway, because I am still paying off a car that I purchased in the Spring, I do not have money to take a vacay this Summer. However, there is nothing stopping me from enjoying my down time and pretending I’m on a tropical island by eating at a Mexican restaurant, going on a nice hike, BBQs/get togethers with friends, etc.

And a large part of this tropical feel is what we eat and drink. Personally, nothing says Summer more than either a gin ‘n tonic, mojito, or sangria.

(The problem with mojitos is getting the mint. I’m somewhat lazy to pick mint from my sideyard, but I’m too cheap to go out and buy fresh herbs!)

Non-alcoholic speaking, when water gets boring, I like to slice fresh citrus fruit and put it into my water AND I’ve been getting into pure coconut water!

So what drink(s) spell S-u-m-m-e-r for you?

    Just water most of the time, lots of ice water – and we have great tap water here, so it’s that!
    Occasionally make sun tea.
    No booze when it’s hot, makes things worse.
    (uh, I used to be fun…)

    Frozen Strawberry Limeade: Blend 1 can frozen limeade, 1/2 can sprite, 2 cups frozen strawberries, and the pulp of two limes.

    Frozen Raspberry Lemonade: Blend 1 can of lemonade concentrate, 1 1/2 cups of frozen raspberries, 1 tray of ice, and 1 can of water.

    Both are very tart but SO delicious!

    Frozen lemonade! Cheap, yummy, and alcohol-free for those of us who like it that way. I like my cold drinks a little bit tart.

    Ice water or chilled black tea with or without sliced lemons!
    When it’s super muggy and hot, water is all I drink. A lot of it too. 🙂
    I’ll add honey if I’m craving some sweetness. Yum!
