Cool down this hot summer with a quick and easy beat-the-heat group pleasing drink! I originally whipped up this beverage as a Valentine’s Day treat, but who am I kidding, this fresh summer sipper is all about fun in the sun. This recipe uses only three irresistible ingredients. Use frozen lemonade or my favorite: guava nectar, ginger ale and fresh strawberries. See below for recipe!
Secret Food Allergy Weapon: make delicious top 8 free allergen (or more) treats to keep everyone safe and included. I try to focus on foods that fit the needs of all my guests and family.
Using a few of what I call “entertaining tools”, this quick and easy treat will add a little pizazz to any gathering. I am a firm believer in the magic of presentation. Serving up this drink in a paper cup is just as tasty, but presented in a fun beverage bottles and mason jars kicks up the party a notch.
I try to keep these ingredients on hand for impromptu gatherings or to simply punch up the fun when the family starts to wither from rising temps. I consider the bottles and jars an investment that I can use all year long.
