Drinks to Beat the Summer Heat

Updated on April 15, 2013

10 amazing summer drinks to make your taste buds zing!

Number One: Twisted Iced Coffee... Pour 3 Tablespoons of Sweetened Condensed milk over ice and add 8-10oz of cooled/hot strong coffee.

Number Two: Chilled Flavored Water... Add your favorite fruit to 10-16oz of water. You may add 2 teaspoons of sugar if you would like. Let the water chill in the fridge for an hour or two.

Number Three: Cherry Ice... Puree 1/2 pound of pitted cherries, add 1/2 cup of sugar and 1 cup of Hibiscus tea. Pour into a nice glass with ice and garnish with cherries.

Number Four: Vodka Freeze... fill a glass halfway with ice and cranberry juice, add a splash of vodka into each glass. Top with Seltzer and garnish with mint

Number Five: Kiwi Punch... Puree 7-8 cubed kiwis with 1/2 cup of sugar and the juice from two limes or lemons. (Personally I like it with limes better.) and 1 cub of water. Pour over ice and serve. You can garnish with kiwis or limes.

Number Six: Strawberry Limeade... It's simple! :) Just make a sauce by dissolving 1 cup of sugar in 1 cup of water over low heat. Then let cool. While it is cooling combine 1 cup lime juice, 2 cubs water, chopped strawberries (however many you like, I do about a handful) and ice. Mix it all together and enjoy! (This is my favorite!)

Number Seven: Cherry Soda... (Yes another cherry one, sorry.) Bring 1 cup sugar, 1 cup water and 1 cup of cherries to boil and cook until it has thickened like syrup. Let cool for one minute then add seltzer. You may add ice too it if you would like.

Number Eight: Blueberry Freeze... Puree 4-6 ounces tequila, 2 ounces blue cura├žao, 1/2 cup blueberries, the juice of 3 limes, 1 tablespoon sugar and 3 cups ice until slushy; pour into 2 sugar-rimmed margarita glasses.

Number Nine: White-Grape Cooler... Mix 1 cup grape juice and 1 cup lemon juice together, pour over ice and garnish with lemons.

Number Ten: Raspberry Freeze.... Fill a jar with raspberries; cover with cider vinegar and steep overnight. Strain into a saucepan and add 1 cup sugar per 1 cup liquid; boil 15 minutes, then cool. Combine 3 tablespoons shrub in a glass with ice, lime juice and seltzer. (Not my recipe)
