Simple Summer Drinks

I love summer for so many reasons. The hot weather, long days of sunlight, being outdoors and bbq’s. I love all of the different types of food specific to summer and the cool beverages that go along with them.

I decided I would share three EASY summer drinks with you that both look and taste like you put in a lot of effort.

The first one is Sangria. I love me a good Sangria. I have made it a bunch of times but I came across a bottled one from LCBO that is both delicious and affordable. It’s called Boone’s and it’s only $7.95 a bottle!

Add some ice and fresh fruit to it and serve! You can pour it by the glass or serve it punch style. I added some fresh strawberries, blueberries and an orange wedge.

Next up is a good ol’ mojito. This one is also one that comes pre-made and it is delicious! The best mojito I have ever had was in Cuba, but this one definitely comes in second. It’s the Bacardi Classic Mojito from LCBO and is $15.95 a bottle.

All I did was add some ice and fresh mint from my garden! (Don’t skip out on the mint, you can purchase it from the grocery store.)

Lastly is a blended drink. You can serve this in slushy form or just over ice.

Peach Cocktail

9D524834-57D5-4360-B8E6-5AA2AFFF1D8B

1 cup 7-Up
1/2 cup ice
Peach Liquid Water Enhancer
1oz Champagne
1oz Rum
Splash of Sangria

Mix peach liquid water enhancer (it’s up to you how much you want to use) with 7-Up. Pour into blender. Add ice, champagne, and rum. Blend. Pour over ice and add a splash of sangria (it looks so pretty for a few short mins as the colours bleed together).

(For more of a Peach Bellini feel, add the peach liquid water enhancer into the 7-Up and freeze for a few hours until it’s in slushy form. Omit the ice, blend with the champagne and rum. Pour into a glass and pour sangria over the mix.)
