Refreshing Summer Drinks to Make at Home!
Summer has arrived! Bring on the warm sunshine, poolside reads, summer dresses and, our favorite, drinks on the patio. If you’re looking for something refreshing, easy to make and packed with fresh fruit, check out these three summer drinks:
Sangria is incredibly easy to make from home and is a summertime favorite. All you need to make sangria is some fruit-flavored soda (such as San Pellegrino), your favorite fruity wine, and whatever fresh fruit you love. The juicier the fruit, the better! Whole fruit you should slice finely and mix together with a pinch of sugar in a bowl. Citrus fruits can be squeezed overtop of this mixture. Spoon a healthy helping into your glass, add two parts wine and one part soda, and garnish with mint or lemon. This DIY sangria can be completely customized to your preferences, so have fun with it!
Mango Margarita Mocktail:
When the heat has got you beat, this mocktail will be your saving grace. Not only will it cool you off and satisfy your sweet tooth, but the ginger will help you feel better if you’ve been out in the sun for too long. All you need to do is muddle raspberries or strawberries at the bottom of a glass, then add a tablespoon of lime juice and a teaspoon of grated ginger. Add one part mango juice, one part grapefruit juice and a scoop of ice. Stir well and enjoy!
Slurpee’s are a summer staple, but the syrup in them often only makes us thirstier than we were to begin with. Trade your Slurpee for the surprisingly refreshing and delightfully healthy Watermelon Slushie. This drink is crazy simple to make. All you need to do is cut up a watermelon into cubes and pick out the seeds. Blend the cubed watermelon with ice, and voila! If you want it a touch sweeter, add a dash of honey. You can also add frozen berries to the blend. Garnish with mint and bask in the glow of your new favorite summer drink.
These summer drinks are going to have you living your best life! Let the whole world know by putting them in our “Living My Best Life” drink tumbler. These BPA free plastic, double-walled, white and coral tumblers were a hit with the summer surprise boxes!
