Summertime is where each one of us craves for some chilled drinks, says Thomas N Salzano, a renowned chef, and a famous blogger. Everyone wants to enjoy the refreshing summer drinks with some fruit-fills but how to prepare these drinks at home is a question.
But there are a few things that you should consider before making a summer drink for your family. The first one is that if the drink is for kids it should contain no alcohol and second use fresh fruits for the drink.
So let’s take a look at some amazing summer drink recipes shared by Thomas N Salzano that will help your prepare summer drinks at home:
Glow water is a zero-calorie seltzer water mix. You do not need much to make the water glow. Take three cans of seltzer water, one cucumber, cut it into a thin round shape, take some sprigs mint and one lemon that is thinly sliced. You can also use ingredients like ginger, cinnamon stick, strawberries as per your choice.
Now combine seltzer water with the ingredients of your choice. Stir, and muddle a little your ingredients to release more flavor. Serve immediately or else chill in the refrigerator until ready to drink.
This is one of the most easy-to-make drinks combined with two summertime favorites, one is lemonade and the other is watermelon juice.
For this, you need to combine half watermelon juice and half lemonade. For chilling and refreshing taste freeze the watermelon chunks to use instead of ice cubes.
Before I share the recipe, let me tell you this drink is not for kids as we will use rum to prepare this.
As ingredients, you need two cubes of ice, ¼ c. blue curacao, 1 cup white rum, some lemonade, and lemon slices. If you have maraschino cherries you can use that too as an ingredient.
Put ¼ cup of ice in each glass, now add a splash of blue curacao, ¼ cup rum, and another ¼ cup of ice. Now pour over ½ cup lemonade.
Skewer a lemon slice and if you have maraschino cherries add them as a good presentation factor.
This is an amazing drink for summers where you use fruits instead of ice. Doesn’t it sound interesting?
For ingredients, you need 3-4 c lemon-lime soda, 4 c lemonade, 1 can seltzer, 1 c sliced strawberries, other fruits like mangoes that are cubed, popsicle strawberry fruit pop and mango fruit pops.
Take a bowl and stir together soda, lemonade, seltzer, strawberries, and mangoes in it. Pour into glasses and garnish it with a small slice of mango or strawberry. Now place a popsicle in as a garnish. Your drink is now ready to be served.
