Summer is here and that means sitting by the pool, or the lake, or on the front porch visiting and sipping on something cool.
When it’s hot outside, I love something icy and cold and have a fun summer favorite that I make. It’s called a Margarita Slush– but you could make it with alcohol or without, and it’s delicious either way. It’s so easy, too.
One (12 oz) can of frozen lemonade (undiluted, thawed)
One (12 oz) can of frozen limeade (undiluted, thawed)
One (6 oz) can of frozen orange juice (undiluted, thawed)
6 cups water
2 cups tequila (optional)
Mix all ingredients together then divide into 3 gallon Ziploc bags and freeze overnight.
When ready to serve, take out a bag, pour it into a pitcher and add in a half of a cold 2-liter of lemon-lime soda then mush it all together and serve.
So yummy and perfect for a hot day!
Summertime is full of opportunities to make memories with your favorite fun drinks. In my latest Lovestruck book, Romancing the Ranger, Wade wins Reese over by bringing her an iced caramel latte. My favorite iced coffee is a Caramel Machiato from Starbucks. I also love a late night run to Sonic for Cherry Limeades and of course, no summer road trip is complete without a spontaneous stop to grab Blizzards at a DQ off the highway.
What’s your favorite summer fresh drink recipe?
About the Book:
She’s getting out of the city and into his heart…Reese Hudson meant to destroy mementos from her last failed relationship, not burn down an outhouse and incur the wrath of a sexy park ranger. When the judge rejects her offer to pay for the structure and sentences her to rebuild it—with the hot ranger supervising—she embraces the challenge to take control of her life.
Park ranger Wade Baker wants nothing to do with the rich city girl, no matter how tempting he finds her lush curves. She’s too much like his ex-fiancée, and if he’s learned anything, it’s that women like Reese don’t fit into his world. And he sure as hell wants no part of her big city life.
Reese may not know a hammer from a screwdriver, but she’s working hard to prove she’s not just some pampered princess to be toyed with. And damn it if Wade doesn’t admire her tenacious spirit. If only they got along half as well outside the bedroom as they do in it, there might be a chance for them after all…
