Summer beverages to beat the heat?

Stephanie

It was 100 degrees yesterday in Northeastern PA and it looks as though we are heading there once again today. (I’m melting away!)

One of my favorite ways to cool down is with a tasty summer beverage. Last week it was homemade blueberry lemonade, this week my “Rose Fizz.” I make the Fizz with Rose Syrup that I buy at the Indian Food Market. 2 tablespoons over ice then fill the glass with club soda. People have asked me how it tastes and to me, it’s exactly how you would expect a rose to taste – just like it smells, only sweeter. The sweetness of it reminds me of being a kid and that first taste of a new flavor of smooth Italian Ice from the truck that drove around our neighborhood. Watermelon, Bubble Gum… Yes!

Do you have a favorite summer beverage?

  1. For the relaxing summer day there is nothing better than a good Mojito Cuban style. If I am at work an Italian soda with cherry or watermelon flavor will do the trick!

  3. Two drinks come to mind…

    1. Jamaica– steeped hibiscus (in Mexico-jamaica) flower petals, a wee bit of sugar…REALLY cold…a tart, earthy, bit of refreshing beauty in the mouth. And a lovely deep red color to boot.

    2. Lemonade and seltzer, lots of crushed ice. Mmmm!

    Okay…and a memory… kool-aid baby-sized ice-cubes served in recycled yogurt cups by my grandmother!
