3 Summer Drink Ideas

Discover 3 refreshing drinks for the summer season, from fruity to fizzy.

Summer is the perfect time for drinks and parties. When planning a summer party, be sure to have a variety of ingredients to make festive drinks for your party guests. Drinks will cool off your party guests on a hot summer day, and many drinks can be served in punch bowls with floating party decor.

Boardwalk Cooler
For a refreshing summer beverage, try the Boardwalk Cooler. Mix 1 cup of lemonade with 1 cup of lemon-lime soda in a Collins glass. Add a half scoop of raspberry sorbet on top. Garnish the drinks with fresh raspberries.

Party Slushy Punch
To make a slushy party punch, you will need a small box of gelatin, 2 1/2 cups of sugar, 2 cups of boiling water, 3/4 cup of frozen lemonade, 1 large can of pineapple juice, 1 tsp. almond flavoring and a two-liter bottle of ginger ale. Combine the sugar and gelatin, and mix in the 2 cups of boiling water until dissolved. Add all the other ingredients and pour them into a gallon container. Add enough water to fill the gallon container, stir the mixture and freeze over night. Allow about six hours for it to thaw and put the mixture into a punch bowl. Pour ginger ale over the mixture and use a spoon to create a slushy texture.

Summer Fruit Punch
Another summer drink to try is summer fruit punch. Dice one peach, one nectarine, one apricot and one plum. Divide the fruit evenly into four ice-filled glasses. Mix 2 cups of apricot juice, 2 cups of sparking cider and 1 cup of seltzer. Pour the mixture over the fruit and ice-filled glasses.
