10 Yummiest Summer Drinks

Summer yummy drinks

I'm not a huge drinker, but there's something about the season that just makes me want to sit on the patio and sip a fun drink out of a pretty glass. Maybe it's the heat. Maybe it's the hours of sunlight. Maybe it's the abundance of fresh fruit and herbs. Maybe it's the fact that my kids are home from school. OK, so maybe there's no maybe about that one. It's the kids. They're driving me to drink. Here's what's in my glass ...

1. White Sangria I love me some traditional Sangria, but this one just seems more summery to me. Yum.

2. Honeydew Fizz Midori, fresh honeydew, and seltzer water is all it takes to make this yummy green bliss. I'll take three.

3. Blueberry Spritzer This one is kid-friendly and super healthy. I think it'd be even better with some vanilla vodka, but either way.

4. Strawberry Lemonade We're totally making this for the lemonade stand and charging a dollar a cup. Totally worth it.

5. Chocolate Egg Cream Float I remember having one of these when I was a kid and it was just magical. Hoping my kids feel the same way.

6. Watermelon-Basil Margaritas Does this just spell summer, or what?

7. Strawberry Jello Shots OK, so not officially a drink, but jello shots? In strawberry? Sign me up!

8. Jamaica Margaritas Almost as good as actually being on an island. Almost.

9. Extra Minty Mojitos These may be my all-time favorite and I love the secret to this recipe.

10. Limoncello I started making these last summer and life hasn't been the same since. They are even better with lemon-ball vodka. Brace yourselves.

We enjoy lemonade with raspberry rum while sitting on the front deck with my parents. Have become a summer tradition!

Ever had an Arnold Palmer (iced tea & lemonade)? Try it with iced tea vodka....soooo much better!

Oh, and glad my kids aren't the only ones who force others to drink!
