Thirst Quenchers

There are so many thirst quenching finds to enjoy during these hot months. Fruit slushies, smoothies, flavored waters, lemonades, and many more. Plus, it’s fun to have a special something on hand for all the cookouts and summer get-togethers coming up. I’ve been bookmarking and printing out recipes left and right myself. I thought I’d do a quick round up of a few I’ve posted and a list of other tasty ones for you to check out.

Get your straws ready and make sure you have plenty of ice. Enjoy!

A recent post for a Frozen Coconut Limeade. Two ingredients plus ice. Doesn’t get any easier than this folks–or tastier! The recipe provides for a non-alcoholic version too.


Super-dee-duper easy Flavored Water. Have a gallon or two on hand for a quick and light drink.


This recipe for Cherry Limeade is an all natural, no preservative option full of flavor. Give it a whirl in a blender for a slushy version.


A Rhubarb Strawberry Smoothie that could be easily switched up using different fruit combos. A little healthier than a milkshake too.

    All I need to go along with these drinks is a lounge chair, sun and sand. Every one looks more delicious than the next.
