Since my daughter did a lot of the manual labor it was important that she be included in some of the strawberry cooking decisions and her request was strawberry lemonade. She is a big fan of lemonade in general and her eyes lit up at the prospect of making it at home from scratch.

Choya is a brand of Japanese Plum Brandy, and, at 14.5 alcohol, it's not nearly as potent as grape based brandy. However, the drink had plenty of kick from Tanqueray gin, a summer mixer if ever there was one.

Yesterday, I received an email in my inbox from one of my best friends requesting that I quickly (apparently she had a deadline) come up with a little healthier version of the Dole Whip that everyone loves at Disney World.

I actually made this drink twice before running out of strawberries. The second time, we had a big group of friends over and they all loved it! The drink is cool and refreshing, especially on a hot summer (or late spring) night, but I really think it's special because of the secret ingredients.

My sister shared this recipe she found with me on Memorial Day and we LOVED it! I thought you’d like it too!

The days of warm coffee was growing old. I was just waiting, it had almost been one year since I tasted the sweet taste of chocolate and coconut in a drink. I began to get fed up with the wait. I set out on a mission to make the same drink for a cheaper cost!

This is good. The kind of good when-you-might-drink-one-too-many-and-get-that-lecture-we-were-talking-about-but-totally-don’t-care-’cause-you-had-an-awesome-time good.

Ah, Sangria, could there be a more perfect summer drink? You really can make it any way and it just comes out perfect.

When I first made them, they were called Virgin Banana Margaritas. I started making them, fell in love, and always referred to them as “Banana Margaritas”. I would make them for breakfast when I had bananas getting too ripe and the whole family just loved them, especially Brady.

Do you ever have those days when you want to celebrate just because it’s 5 o’clock? Yeah. I feel ya’ pain. That’s why I’m sharing one of my favorite 5 o’clock porch drinks: cherry beer margaritas.

I wanted to try a combo of pineapple and orange for a long time. When i saw this fresh cut pineapples in the wet market, I got a packet and made juice after coming home. This tasted so yum and my kiddos too loved this.

This delicious light and fruity summer drink is sure to be a crowd-pleaser. I made it for our Memorial Day bar-b-cue and I couldn’t keep up with the demand for refills.

Cold brew coffee makes a smooth, non-bitter coffee that is especially perfect for iced coffee.Whether you should drink coffee or not from a health perspective is up to debate, but if you are going to drink coffee this is a lovely way to do it.

Florida Coolers are a summer staple made with frozen fruit juice, sugar, ice, and the alcohol of your choice. Or, you can substitute club soda for a non-alcoholic version.

It’s strawberry season here where I live, so the timing was perfect to try to make my own version of this drink. With my husband’s help, we managed to come up with what has definitely become my new favorite ‘summer’ drink.

Remember my lava flow sorbet? Coconut milk, pineapple juice, and vanilla bean sorbet, mmmmm. Well I used some of that delicious concoction to make a wonderful tropical smoothie, and just had to share. It's very simple!

As the temperatures return to warm glimpses of summer, we move back outside. We grill, we lounge in the sun, we have Happy Hour at Home. We get creative with cocktails, and this time of year, the cooler and lighter the cocktail, the better.

This smoothie reminds me of the milk shakes my parents used to make us on Friday nights when we would watch the TGIF lineup of shows on TV.

So, I wanted a green smoothie, but I had no greens, thus I made a fruit-ish smoothie instead. I pretty much never make non-green-smoothies. They feel too desserty instead of breakfasty.

This one includes lovely leafy greens, a bit of spicy ginger, some tart lemon, a touch of green apple, and earthy beets. If you aren't a fan of beets, fear not! Their flavor is mellowed by the rest of the ingredients making for one delicious juice with a gorgeous ruby hue.

A herbal dose of awesome all wrapped up in a cocktail. It is green tea cocktail style! This is our first foray into the world of Chartreuse and I believe it might be a worthy endeavor.

When the mercury climbs past 70 degrees in Seattle, it’s reason to celebrate – especially after a very rainy (even by this native’s measure) spring. So this warm weekend seemed the perfect time to try this Easy-Way Lemonade.

The perfect summer mocktail or cocktail, Watermelon Mojito is is simply amazing cool and refreshing drink. A pitcher of this is must on my party menu during summer months.

Merlot 2007 paired with Raspberry Chocolate Cupcake. Delicious and smooth. It reminded us of chocolate covered cherries, but better. The rich chocolate cupcake with a raspberry center and chocolate ganache on top was the icing on our wine

I think a fresh fruit drink is the best way to relax and celebrate at the same time. The tangy-ness of the lime, the heat from the jalapeno and the flavor the mint makes this a perfect drink for summer.

This little smoothie is a far cry from my standard and as you probably guessed, I made it for breakfast this weekend–it’s amazing how a little sleep can lead to so much inspiration!

I like to whip up delicious drinks for me and the Mister on our date nights. They are great little desserts that we can sip on while watching a movie. Well, the other night we created a recipe we call “The Caribbean Smoothie.”

I’ve always liked drinking my water with a slice or two of lemon–that extra little touch of flavor just makes water more appealing to me. There are a lot of other ways you can flavor water naturally.

This is not the official sangria, sangria. I didn’t use a Spanish wine. I used one bottle of dry white wine, one bottle of rose, but you could use two bottles of white wine. I added lots of fruit, and you can be creative here, as long as half of the added fruit is fresh strawberries. I think this matters.

It combines a fresh blackberry, berry juice, and Sparkling Rose Wine to create a beautiful drink that will help you say cheers to that special mom in your life.
