Refreshing Summer Drinks

As of yesterday it is official – summer is here – and I have some ideas for refreshing summer drinks to take us through the season.  I have discovered three refreshing summer drinks (thanks to my friends) that you may enjoy.

Sparkling Iced Tea

This one is so easy and sure to be enjoyed by everyone!

With only two ingredients it is quick to pull together and tastes like you went to a lot of trouble!

mix equal parts of these two and garnish with a sprig of mint

you are done!

White Rose Tea with Organic Cherry Juice…



both items available at Whole Foods

I steep about a quart of tea (preferably out in the sun) and add a big splash of the cherry juice.  The rose tea smells divine and the cherry juice is so good for you!

Refreshing champagne cocktail…

start with a big splash of the St. Germain Elderflower liqueur…


add a smaller splash of Citron…


fill the champagne flute with your favorite champagne…

Veuve Clicquot

I plan to be enjoying all three of these refreshing summer drinks – hope you will too!

    Can’t wait to try these recipes! I was feeling the need for a summer beverage late yesterday afternoon and made my favorite hot weather drink- mint daquiris – put 1 can of frozen limeade in the blender, add rum (3/4 of a limeade can worth) , and handful of mint leaves – add ice and blend- warning can be addictive!

      I hate to have missed the first mint daiquiris of the season! Perhaps some will make it to a summer wine-down!
