Lemonade is delicious! I like it when it hasn't been sweetened. You just don't need any extra sugar at all, it is best just as it is. Drinks that have been over-sugared are just sickeningly sweet and actually make you more thirsty than before. For just plain and simple thirst quenching, I prefer cool, clear water!

I came up with a strawberry lemonade green smoothie to make my husband happy while getting him to be healthier. 4 strawberries, juice from 1 lemon, small handful of spinach, agave or stevia to sweeten if you like. Mix in blender, adding water slowly until you reach desired thickness. Serve over ice and enjoy immediately. Its so tangy and refreshing! Hubby loves this and actually gets some green in his diet because he can't taste the spinach :)

My favorite drink in the summer is freshly brewed ice tea infused with lemons/fresh lemonade and fresh mint. And always a nice, tall, refreshing glass of ice cold water!

sparkling water with slices or lemon or lime. I also like to add some juice (orange or cranberry) to the sparkling water to give it a little extra flavor. Iced tea is also a favorite - I usually use a fruity tea and add some agave nectar to sweeten it up a little.

I'm a Tongan transplant living in St.Louis so I haven't had my favorite summer beverage in a few years, but it would definitely have to be fresh, green coconut juice with the coconut meat stirred up inside the coconut. no straw. no ice.

We spiff up all our favorite beverages with local fresh produce over the summer. Add fresh picked blueberries from Jones Farms to a tall glass of lemonade, or chunks of watermelon and sprigs of mint to sparkling water. Don't forget to garnish Bloody Marys at your next cookout with selections from your backyard garden like: sugar snap peas, swiss chard, cherry tomatoes & herbs. Any drink is enhanced with fresh fruit or veg!

So, we have 2 favorite lemonades - one is store bought, organic Santa Cruz lemonade. I love the original, my husband and oldest son love the mango lemonade, and my daughter and other son love teh cherry lemonade. It doesn't matter what the flavor is, though, because we all love all of them. Then, the 2nd favorite is our homemade lemonade. We use brown sugar, fresh mint, and fresh lemons. Just 3 ingredients, but it is so yummy!!!!!

Fresh squeezed lemons and spring water. We like it tart so we add a little simple syrup (sugar boiled in water). Served over ice in a tall glass with a sprig of mint.

I love Sangria in the hot summer days! This is a drink that can be done in so many different ways. Red wine, oranges, lemons, limes and you can also add apples. Yummy! And the colors are amazing! :)

Lemonade reminds me of my childhood with the sun beating down on my friends and I as we sold it on the corner in Queens. I introduce this time honored traditions with my boys. I loved the look on their face with each glass they sold and drank. Lemonade goes with summer like sand, the smell of fresh cut grass and the sun warming your face.

I have a strawberry lemonade recipe I've been wanting to try, but it's hard to change when the standard lemonade is so refreshing in the summer.

My favorite summer, winter, and fall beverage is a summery homemade margarita. The key ingredient is real fresh squeezed limes. After that, it's great fun to improvise with summer fruits such as watermelon and strawberries. The possibilities are endless.
