Drinks for a Summer Saturday

Cricket is paradise in the summer sun.

Summer is upon us, in some parts of the world it’s Father’s Day this Sunday, and in England we’re playing summer sports; cricket, tennis, and gardening.  OK, the English love gardening.  However English Gentlemen mostly like sitting in the garden sipping something cool while we watch our Good Lady doing all the hard work.  So, some summery drinks…

I really like the look and sound of this strawberry summer water from Jessica Merchant at How Sweet It Is.  And, if you liked, instead of using fresh or sparkling water you could chose a very light white wine instead.  (In passing Jessica says she’s only ever been to a spa once in her life!!!!  Come on guy, pay for her to go to a cool spa!!!)

The ever-artistic Heather Christ has these apricot gin and tonics.  Heather says they are perfect for summer sipping, and I for one believe her.

For some unknown reason, we English drink Pimms in summer ~ never did like the stuff myself.  However, Tieghan Gerard at Half Baked Harvest has an interesting take on Pimms with her strawberry melon elderflower Pimms cup.  Looks very nice indeed.

This watermelon, fresh herbs, & sotol cocktail from Todd at Honestly Yum sounds very cooling.  I suppose that if you’re all out of sotol you could get by with tequila instead.

Todd & Diane, the White On Rice Couple, have this great post about a great drink; the watermelon margarita.  Want to know how to make the perfect watermelon margarita?  Then just click on the link.

Finally for now, from the lovely Averie Sunshine, I bring you grilled pineapple strawberry lemonade sangria.  I ask you, what’s not to like?

  2. I make a watermelon beverage which is more slushy and family friendly! Cut up your melon, freeze a couple of cups, when it is frozen, blend it with some lemon lime fizzy soda pop, enjoy! (I used diet since my glucose couldn’t have handled MORE sugar!)

  3. I shall stick with my bottled spring water, but I have to ask … what is Pimms??? Never heard of it, nor seen it at the stores. Wine fizzy? Soda pop? Ale?
