"Firefly Collins" A large handful of Fresh, muddled mint--preferably Orange Mint, picked that day 2 cups favorite Gin 2 cups lemonade--fresh! Fill remainder of pitcher with Club Soda Serve from a handpainted glass pitcher that brings back memories of dozens of nights spent with friends, into glassware garnished with whole lemon and orange slices. Best when consumed over conversations on the deck, with the grill going and a strawberry tart standing by.

During the summer we often have cut fresh fruit to accompany our meals. We freeze the leftovers in small portions. When we're thirsty we put the frozen mixed fruit in the blender, add fruit juice and blend. We recycle our leftovers and quench our thirst at the same time!

Thai watermelon smoothies! When in Thailand last year we had these nearly every day, and we haven't stopped making them since. In a blender just mix cubed watermelon, ice, and simple syrup to taste, blend until smooth-ish but not melty, and enjoy!

My fav summer refresher is to take a bottle of plain seltzer water and squeeze a lemon and a lime into it with plenty of ice. Add a couple teaspoons of Truvia (a plant derivative zero (-0-) calorie sweetner) and you have guiltless, sinless liquid joy!

How fun! My favorite summer beverage is lemonade with fresh lemon slices in side and a few cut strawberries for fun flavor and pretty color! I also love (and drink regularly) unsweet green iced tea. Its so refreshing, especially on a hot Houston day!

After years of contemplating, I finally made my own Homemade Limoncello a few weeks ago. So far it has received rave reviews and I am contemplating making a few recipes with it. I have narrowed it down to Limoncello Cheesecake Bars and Limoncello Tiramisu'. Fortunately my husband and I have many friends who are willing taste-testers! I will let you know the results!

I'd have to say that lemonade is up there on my favorite summer beverages list! But aside from that, smoothies are my summer go-to. A great treat for a hot day that taste good, and fills you up!

Mango-Coconut Refresh Blend one large can of coconut water with about a third cup of frozen organic mangoes. Purée until completely blended. Pour over ice and sit back to enjoy an intensely refreshing beverage.

I love brewing green tea and then pouring it over frozen fruit (usually some sort of berry...) and ice and then blending to make a green-tea slushy! It's refreshing and healthy!

My favorite is lemonade. Its so wonderful on a hot sticky summer day loaded with ice. My mother had kidney stones and her doctor told her to start drinking lemonade and since she started she has never passed another one! We use spring water, organic sugar and organic lemons most of the time. I like to play with the recipe though and my favorite thing is to add a teaspoon of real vanilla. Mmmmm. My second favorite is Mint Iced Tea. Brew the same # of peppermint teabags as you would for a pitcher of regular tea. Add 1/2-3/4 cup maple syrup to sweeten and serve over ice one cooled to room temp.

We make smoothies almost daily. I buy overripe bananas and keep them in the freezer (unpeeled & in a large freezer bag), and use those as the base with a cup full of Stonyfield vanilla whole milk yogurt. We add protein powder, probiotic powder, vanilla, and chocolate chips. Or, a frozen wild organic blueberry smoothie. We've experimented with lots of flavors--it's something the kids look forward to--and they are great helpers. ;-D (we are hoping to host a fundraising lemonade stand this summer for the Save the Manatees organization--my 8-year-old son's passion)
