Relax & Refresh! Fun Summer Drinks.

One of the things I love the most about summer is lounging in the pool with a cold drink in hand.

I'm not much of a beer drinker, but I do love a good, crisp, fruity drink.  One of my Sweatpink Sisters, Annica @ lifemodifier is featuring fun summer drinks on her blog today...check it out!

Here are a couple of my favorites...

**Peach Sangria**

This is my all time favorite sangrias and it is *so* easy to make!


1 750ml bottle of sweet white wine - Moscato or  Chardonnay are both great choices

This is a great one to use.

About 3/4 of a 2L of Ginger Ale

1 cup of sugar (I usually cut this back just a bit)

1 cup (or more if you desire) of Peach Schnapps

Stir until all the sugar has been incorporated into the liquid.

Add sliced peaches, strawberries, pineapple and oranges - raspberries are good too.

This can be served immediately or can be left to "marinate" overnight.  I think it gets more fruity flavor when left over night from the diffusion of the fruit.

Another one of my all time favorites?

Cactus Cooler

This one is really easy too!


32 oz (4 cups) of Pineapple Juice

32 oz (4 cups) Cranberry Juice

16 oz (2 cups) of Dekuyper Peach Schnapps

You can easily cut down this recipe for a single serving by using 2 parts of each juice and 1 part of the Schnapps.

Mix well and serve over ice.  The colder this drink is the more refreshing it is.

And finally...

Cheers to that!!
