4 cool summer drinks

Friends, let's raise a glass to summer! Here's hoping you can find some time to unwind and enjoy the season with a frosty beverage in hand. If you're ready to beat the heat, sip on one of these 4 cool summer drinks. 


Strawberry Limeade


This Strawberry Limeade is the perfect combination of sweet and tart and is practically guaranteed to refresh even the most parched persons. Its ingredients list is summer-time simple -- lime juice, sugar, water, strawberries and mint leaves. Pure summer refreshment that everyone can enjoy!


Pineapple Coladas


If there is anything that screams summer more than sipping a Piña colada out of a cored pineapple, we can't think of what it is. Making Pineapple Coladas is simple -- provided that you own a pineapple corer. It may well be worth the $10 investment if you're going to be making these on repeat, or if you just want an easier way to peel and slice a pineapple.  


Summer Melon Slushies


When the sun beats down hard, you have to fight back hard. These shaved ice Summer Melon Slushies are almost too thick and cold to sip. You can choose from Watermelon-Lime, Honeydew-Ginger-Mint, or Cantaloupe-Basil -- or create your own flavour. The summer heat doesn't stand a chance against these heavy hitters!


Mint Julep


A Mint Julep is a perfect cocktail for a warm summer evening. It's easy to prepare if you keep a few things in mind: use pre-chilled glasses (good advice for all the above beverages) and use only the smallest and most tender leaves of fresh mint. Straws are not advised. In addition to being unsustainable for the environment, they also keep your nose out of your glass. You'll want to be up close and personal with this cocktail as the aroma of fresh mint is a big part of its charm.
