Yum Yum! Peach Lemonade! You will find the recipe at The Tip Toe Fairy.


Here's a drink you won't see around everyday. Elderflower Cordial.....and Buttons and Paint can tell you exactly how to make this one. Different right? I would like to try it!

Refreshing Summer Drink

Blueberry Summer Spritzer from Lois Culinary Creations. She uses a Soda Stream Machine to make this. I have been wanting one of those and now I have one more reason to get one!

Lemon Berry Fruit Slush

This drink caught my eye because it is so pretty it must be good! Lemon Berry Fruit Slushy over at Love Bakes Good Cakes.

Look at that! Red White and Blue in a Mason jar! So Patriotic! Save this link for your next patriotic party. Or any time :) Head over to My Turn for the recipe. 

Thankful Me made a delish Peach Basil Smoothy, yum!

Blueberry-Banana Smoothies

And speaking of smoothies, here is a Blueberry Banana Fruit Smoothie. So goo, over at Healthy Ideas Place. 

There is nothing better than fresh squeezed home made lemonade. You will find a recipe for Hand Squeezed Sweet Lemonade over at Blue Eyed Beauty Blog.

Have you ever tried Melon Water? So perfect for the hot days of summer. Casa de Familia Garcia tells you how to make it. 

Coconut, Lime, Milkshake, tropical milkshake, best milkshake

I love coconut anything! Coconut & Lime Milkshake over at With A Blast.

  15. I'm not usually big on smoothies because of the carb-count, but some of these sound very good -- I could probably tweak-out some of those carbs! The one that got my attention is the watermelon-mint iced tea -- oh boy, does that ever sound delicious!
