Summery Drinks


*You have only today and tomorrow to enter my Hat Attack giveaway, go here to enter.
Ladies,
Starting the next few Mondays I will be having a new summer series titled, Hostess with the Mostess, on how to properly entertain during those summer months when the days are longer, bbqs cooking all sort of goodness, and the ice cream demands to be licked faster because of the warmer temps.

Also lately, I have been wanting to play hostess.
 Blame it on the fact that our weekly bible study unfortunately crashed and burned so we don't meet up anymore. Hence the lack of baking on this blog, Sean and I can't eat up all the sweets all the time. If anyone is wanting to come on over, whenever I bake, please let us know, we would love to have you. Blame it on wanting more of a social life, I am a person who gets her energy from being social, from hanging out with friends, from being in large groups. Blame it on really wanting to try some of these amazing summery drinks I have been reading in magazines, seeing on Pinterest or reading on other blogs.
This week's Hostess with the Mostess focuses on drinks, the starter to any great party. When you arrive, the hostess will ask you what can I get you to drink? It is a good way to start a party, it sets the mood for the food that is coming and helps to cool you off from the summertime heat.

I will ask you can I interest you in a:
Strawberry Watermelon Cooler


Or a
Honeydew aqua fresca


Or perhaps a
Blackberry Sage Cooler


Or can I entice you with a
Sparkling Pineapple Ginger Ale


Care for a
Peach Summer Sangria


How about a?
Mango Raspberry Sangria

Will you come over to my house now if I served these drinks?
Next in this Hostess with the Mostess series will be appetizers!

These all look so refreshing! I'm a sucker for Sangria so that last one might be my favorite. :)

MMm... those all look refreshing and delicious! I'm on the prowl for some good mocktails (since the hubby and most of the people we hang out with don't drink alcohol) for parties this summer. I LOVE punch but want something a little more "grown-up" than sherbet and gingerale. Know what I mean? haha!

Jennifer @ Delightfully Noted said...

Super, I was just checking out some summery drinks last night! I want to try something new. Thanks for all the ideas.

Amanda said...

I want all of these! Especially now that summer has arrived in full force (it's been hot), minus today, it's pretty chilly. I wish we could whip one of these up and cheer together!

All these drinks look amazing. I can't wait until I can drink summery cocktails again - I miss them!! There are some pretty good virgin ones, including some of the ones you've posted, but let's be real, the ones with the alcohol are always better haha.
