I have several favorites, ice tea is a staple, often accented with herbs like lemon verbena or various mints from my garden. I also enjoy a nice wine spritzer with fresh fruit or a tall gin and tonic.

There is nothing better than homemade lemonade (water, sugar, lemons, and ice) especially when it's made with fresh picked lemons. It brings back all kinds of good summer memories!

Summer Brew 2 cans frozen lemonade 6 pack of your favorite "brew" (beer) 12 ounces vodka Mix the above ingredients in pitcher and serve over ice! Garnish with fresh slice lemons or limes or your favorite fresh fruit! I love this simple summer drink! It's easy, inexpensive and makes a large quantity which allows you to spend more time with your guests (which is what summer is all about)! Enjoy!

I love that lemonade stand basket! My favorite beverage is the fruit tea at Mere Bulles in Brentwood, but since I can't hang out there every day just to drink the fruit tea, I came up with my own recipe which is very similar. Step 8 black tea bags in six cups of water for 3-4 minutes, then remove tea bags. In a gallon container, combine 1 can frozen pineapple juice, 1 can frozen orange juice and 1 can frozen lemonade. Mix well, then add brewed tea. Add enough water to make one gallon. This will be a little strong, but perfect to serve over ice.

My favorite is a drink my husband and I got at a country fair when we were dating. They called it the Lemon Shake-up. Fresh squeezed lemon juice, fresh squeezed orange juice, sugar, ice, and lots of pulp. Yu my and refreshing on a hot summer day!

We like to make homemade iced tea and sweeten it with either simple syrup or honey. Nothing fancy but it tastes great!

Nothing is better than sitting on the back porch drinking sangria that has soaked all day long while the sun sets! 1 part red wine, 1 part sparkling juice with strawberries, grapes, pineapple, berries, and all the wonderful in season fruit!

I know everyone makes iced tea, but I make a special kind of iced tea that is actually really good for you. I discovered Brassica Tea, which contains the 'stuff' from broccoli which protects against cancer. They have it in all flavors, but I usually choose decaf green so I can also serve it to my first grader. The tea is delicious, has no caffeine, has a mild flavor (I don't use sweetener but I sometimes add mint), and I always feel refreshed and just a little healthier when I drink it.

I love peach and white wine sangria! It's still early summer but the Saturn peaches work perfect for it at this time (they seem to be sweetest fastest!). My daughter loves Santa Cruz Organic Lemonade -- and I love the summer time price it carries! :)

best summer beverage? has to be lemon-lime yummy. this can be made with or without the vodka, depending on your target audience: 1 lemon 1 lime 1 orange seltzer water OR Sprite Zero OR Diet 7-Up sprig of mint (optional) Citrus vodka OR Rasberry vodka (optional and ONLY for adults!) ice muddle 1/2 lemon, 1/2 lime and 1/4 orange (or simply squeeze the juice out of the slices, and then twist the rinds to release the oils) **it's up to you if you want to leave the fruit in for color, or remove the rinds** add in your seltzer/sprite/7-up give a quick shake or stir pour over ice, twist in the mint leaf for garnish if using vodka, add this in at the same time you add the lemon-lime soda we call this a Yummy, because it is :)

My favorite summer beverage is cherry limeade. It's the perfect mix between sweet and tangy and is always refreshing. It's best made with fresh limes, maraschino cherries and for a little little bubbly kick club soda or sprite.
