Refreshing Summer Drinks

Hot fun in the summertime means plenty of cold drinks. Whether you’re looking for a fun beverage idea for your next grillathon or just want a something to sip after mowing the lawn, there are lots of flavorful options to choose from.

Easy summer drinks are best when you take advantage of the season’s flavors, so we like to use fresh fruits and herbs to liven up classic lemonades, teas and punches. These recipes are simple to make ahead, so you can have a pitcher at the ready or just keep picnic prep to a minimum.

Using sparkling water adds fun to any summer drink, or adults can use sparkling wine. For an impressive presentation freeze whole blueberries or raspberries, peach slices or strawberry halves in ice cubes. They’ll keep your drink cold with even more fruity flavor.

For even more refreshment, check out our beer cocktails, and be sure to pair your drinks with our new recipes for the grill.
