Summer Drinks!

Share this with your guests or just at a get-together with family and friends, and you are sure to hear a lot of oohs and ahhs!!!



June Bug:  Ginger ale, grenadine, orange juice, and sherbet are blended for a refreshing summer drink.



Watermelon Martini:  Fresh watermelon blended with lemon vodka, lime juice, and Cointreau makes a refreshing drink.



Electric Lemonade: Fresh mint and lemon juice brightens this tangy cocktail.



Ginger Peach Margaritas: For a delicious cocktail, combine fresh peach puree, ginger syrup, lime juice, peach juice, tequila, and Triple Sec.



Psico Sour: This cool cocktail gets a burst of fresh flavor from lime and mint. For a nonalcoholic version, replace the pisco with sparkling water.



Fresh Melon Quenchers: Pureed fruit blended with ice and sparkling water makes a refreshing summer drink. A spoonful of yogurt adds creaminess, while a skewer of fresh fruit makes a pretty garnish.



Watermelon Cooler Punch: Blended watermelon combined with white grape juice, lime juice, sugar, mint, and club soda makes a refreshing summer drink.



Blackberry Sangria: This bright sangria, sweetened with a summer-ripe blackberry syrup, will inspire guests to linger for one more glass. Sprigs of fresh basil make a beautiful garnish.



Sparkling Peach Punch: Impress party guests with this fizzy drink featuring peach nectar, fresh peach slices, lemon juice, and ginger ale.



Sunset Sangria: In this special twist on classic sangria, ruby-red wine floats atop pale green limeade. To get this two-tone effect, gently pour the wine on top of the limeade in the glass.



Cucumber Aqua Fresca: This recipe for agua fresca (which is Spanish for "fresh water") is sweetened and flavored with fresh mint, cucumber, and lime.



Ginger Pineapple Punch: This cooler gets a double dose of ginger from grated fresh ginger as well as diet ginger ale.



Berry Mango Slush: Berry-flavored carbonated water and fresh summer fruits give this Berry Mango Slush plenty of sweetness without added sugar.



Peach-Mint Green Tea: Peach nectar and fresh mint add a twist to this lightly sweetened Peach-Mint Green Tea.



Mock Sangria: When guests come over for a summer cookout, start off the festivities with this slimming three-fruit Mock Sangria served over ice. It only has 61 calories per serving.



Minted Mango Tea: Add a sweet twist to iced tea with mango and mint when you make this minted mango tea recipe.



Summerberry Cooler: This luscious Summerberry Cooler thirst-quencher is loaded with summer strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries. For the best results, start with well-chilled fruit.



Chai Punch: Chai is a blend of tea, milk, and spices. Chai concentrate can be found in the tea section of the grocery store.



Strawberry Iced Tea: Especially in early spring, frozen strawberries are a great alternative to fresh in this Strawberry Iced Tea. Make sure you buy unsweetened berries.



Hit The Spot Lemon Water: You'll be amazed at the refreshing flavors that pop out when you soak lemons and fresh herbs in water for an hour or so. No sugar. Just pure, thirst-quenching goodness in this Hit-the-Spot Lemon Water.



Minted Iced Tea: Liven up your outdoor entertaining -- or just refresh your family's thirst -- with this simple fruit-infused tea. Orange and lemon accompany the mint that flavors this summer iced tea.



Madeline's Lemonade: What makes this lemonade particularly delicious is that it has a little lime juice in it, too.



Mulled Raspberry Tea: This tea drink tastes delicious and sparkles in a beautiful ruby color. Frozen raspberries (when fresh aren't in season) allow you to enjoy this fanciful tea any time of year. It's a nice change from the more common orange and spice variety.



Blueberry Fizz: This easy-to-make flavored ginger ale showcases blueberries, but also includes lemon, lime, and ginger. The longer the berries are in the ginger ale, the more they infuse the drink with flavor and color.
