It’s finally here! The unofficial summer kick off. (Which we can all enjoy thanks to the men and women who have sacrificed their lives for our freedom.) Today I want to share some tasty drink recipes for your holiday barbecues. They’re family friendly too, so everyone can enjoy them!
Cascade Ice® sparkling water comes in over thirty flavors! They’re sodium free, Gluten free, and ZERO calorie too! They are fantastic alone, but when you get creative, and mix certain flavors together, then you’re in for a whole new treat!
Grapefruit Lemonade Refresher
Nothing quenches your thirst like a citrus drink, so if you’re thirsty, try this recipe. Take a chilled glass full of ice and add four ounces of Lemonade Cascade Ice, and three ounces of their Grapefruit flavor. Sugar the rim of the glass, and garnish with fresh lemon slices.
Summer is the time to enjoy fresh watermelon. It’s one of my son’s favorite fruits, and I actually have one ready to cut up today. To go with it, I’ll be making this yummy Melon Mixer with some of our Cascade Ice Sparkling Waters. First pour three ounces of Blueberry Watermelon into your glass, then add one ounce of club soda. Finish off with some chunks of watermelon and blueberries. It tastes wonderful!
How about an adult mixer?
Okay, so virgin drinks are great for the entire family, but sometimes, having an adult beverage is nice too. Here’s a recipe perfect for a hot summer evening.
Cascade Ice Pink Grapefruit Margaritas
- 1 cup Pink Grapefruit Cascade Ice
- 1 1/2 cups of fresh lime juice
- 2/3 cup of Triple Sec
- 1 cup White Tequila
- 1/4 cup of Honey
Combine ingredients and mix until blended. (I like to make mine like a slushy, so I crush ice before hand, and then mix the drink with the slush. Make sure to add coarse salt to the rims of your glasses, pour in your Margarita, garnish with a lime, and enjoy.
