My Favorite Summer Drink!

Here in New Jersey our winters are COLD but come summer time… it is hot, hot, hot! Therefore my family and I love to spend time outside enjoying our yard, setting up little parties and just having a great time. During these hot days I am determined to keep us hydrated and refreshed and sometimes we like a little more flavor than regular water and that is when I create my favorite summer drink… an Arnold Palmer.

What you need:

-Lemons

-Mint Leaves

-Raspberries

-Ice

-Minute Maid® Lemonade

-FUZE® tea

Instructions:

You first want to figure out if you are looking to make a single glass or a pitcher and then just adjust ingredients to your liking. I usually like making a big pitcher so I add ice, 6 cans of FUZE® tea and 3 cans of Minute Maid® Lemonade. If you like a more tangy beverage – add an extra can of lemonade. I then drop in a few lemon slices, raspberries and mint leaves and stir. You can serve instantly or let it chill in the fridge for 30-60 minutes for the flavor from the mint to really blend in. I also like to use the lemon, raspberries and mint to garnish the glasses. Thanks to FUZE tea & Minute Maid Lemonade, Summers are definitely more refreshing!

This is also my go to beverage when having family get togethers or parties. It’s a drink that can be enjoyed by all of our guests, young and old. I think one of my favorite parts of entertaining in our yard is setting everything up and decorating.

First we grab a table and drape it in a cloth, I prefer to use a vinyl table cloth because they are so much easier to clean. I then add a few decorations to the front just to give the white cloth some color.

I then bring over the large drink dispenser and set it up with some fun cups next to it and display a few lemons and flowers. DSC_0222 DSC_0246

In the center of the table I place a food platter that I make by just purchasing various sliced salami, pepperoni and 2 different types of cheese. Adding crackers to this platter brings it all together.DSC_0277

I finish off the table by adding more flowers, some fun straws, a few cans of Minute Maid® Lemonade and FUZE® tea and a dish with lemons, raspberries and mint so that our guests can garnish their beverage.

I absolutely love the way our table came out – what do you think?
