Let’s start with a citrus based drink. If you are a citrus lover, then this one is for sure the drink for you. This drink comes together with a mixture of 2 cups orange juice, 2 cups ice cold water, and 3 cups orange sherbet. Ahhh it’s like an explosion of orange bliss with just the right consistency.

Next up, we have the Strawberry Bliss. This refreshing drink comes together with about 20 strawberries, 2 cups water, 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice and sugar, to taste. It is refreshing and can be made as bitter or as sweet as you like it. The lime juice can also be swapped out for lemon juice. It is definitely one to add to your list of go-to summer beverages!
Frozen Peach Margarita
The Frozen Peach Margarita is for sure to be a crowd pleaser at your barbecues this summer. What you’ll need to make this drink are 4 cups cubed, frozen peaches, 2 cups orange juice, 2 cups ice, 2 tablespoons lime juice, and ¼ cup honey. Blend everything together and serve.
To make this drink, be sure to use a ripe pineapple. To find a ripe pineapple, look for something with a firm shell that still gives you a bit of squeeze when you squeeze it. To make a Pineapple Daiquiri, blend together: 3 cups fresh, diced pineapple, ¾ cup water, 2 cups ice, 1 cup white rum and 2 tablespoons lime juice. Serve and enjoy!
Vibrant and Pink makes for the BEST Summer Drink! This one is the Watermelon Slushy. Now, I know that watermelon is an acquired taste. So, if you don’t like watermelon, then you will for sure want to skip out on this one. For watermelon to be so water based, it has quite a bit of flavor. Combine 3 cups diced, seedless watermelon, 1 ½ cups water, and 3 cups ice. Serve immediately. Now, pat yourself on the back because you just made a delicious watermelon slushy all by yourself!
Now, this last one is a good one for kids or even as an early morning drink! This Berry Blast drink is more like a smoothie. It’s dark in color and rich in plenty of berry flavor. You might feel good knowing that berries are a great source of antioxidants! To make this antioxidant packed smoothie, blend together: 2 cups frozen strawberries, 2 cups frozen raspberries, 2 cups frozen blackberries, 2 cups milk (any kind), and ½ cup blueberry yogurt. Garnish with any leftover berries and mint. Serve and Enjoy!
As you can see, all of these drink names really speak for themselves! Hopefully, these drink ideas can help you to plan for your next party. What are your favorite summer flavors to drink?
