10 Summer Drinks to Quench Your Thirst!

Print
Did you have a lemonade stand growing up? When I was younger, my younger siblings and I decided have a drink stand in our driveway during the hot summer months. Lots of the neighborhood kids would come around and anxiously await whatever we were serving up. We started off with lemonade... until we ran out because my brother drank most of it. So with waiting "customers," we served the next best thing. Pop {or soda or cola or Coke, depending on where you are in the country}. At that point, we lined up paper cups and started pouring. Needless to say, our drink stand went out of business after that afternoon when the kids realized they could go down the street and buy a full can of pop for themselves! So instead of putting up a drink stand in this crazy hot summer, here are recipes for 10 Summer Drinks to Quench Your Thirst!

Sweet, tart, and thoroughly refreshing, this is one drink that 
will make those hot summer days even better...

A mix of fizzy ginger ale, tart cranberry juice, sweet pineapple juice and bright orange juice
