Summer Breeze

[donotprint] This drink reminds me of a summer breeze, you know the kind of breeze that comes dancing off the ocean tossing salt, sand and hair.

It also reminds me of the song, you’re quite welcome for the shared ear worm ūüėČ

That song was my Mother in Law’s favorite song and she used to sing it to the boys when they were growing up.

This drink is like that… comforting, refreshing, bubbly with just the right amount of tartness.

We’re already in the high 90’s here with heat indeces in the 105-109 ranges some days {sigh} although, I suppose that’s the trade-off for living in Corpus Christi and having the beach right around the corner.

This pineapple, lemonade, lemon-lime, strawberry drink makes those hot days just a bit more bearable and would travel really well in a thermos or ice chest for our next beach excursion.

I’ll be making this for our BBQ this weekend and I thought I’d go ahead and share the recipe with y’all ūüėČ because I’m nice like that.

 

I put 1 lb of frozen strawberries in the bottom of my favorite pitcher – if you want to make this a bit more ‘adult’ soak the strawberries in vodka.

Pour in 2 C of prepared lemonade, 2 1/2 C pineapple juice and then fill with lemon lime soda or ginger-ale.

I love the fizzing!¬† Beware, pour slowly or you’ll end up with a counter covered in liquid don’t ask how I know

Stir everything together and chill before serving or pour over ice.

        I served it alcohol-free in a punch bowl with the chilled bottle of vodka and martini glasses nearby for the adults to update their beverage. It was yummy and refreshing on a hot day in Pittsburgh.

    I shared my GF Japanese Rice Salad and two articles — something happened with the picture on the butter articles — please delete #18.

    This looks so yummy- it makes me thirsty! I know what you mean about the weather, I am in Laredo, so it is even hotter than Corpus, although it’s not too humid. I had no idea you lived so close to me! :)

    I’m really glad I have found this info. Today bloggers publish only about gossips and web and this is actually annoying. A good website with exciting content, this is what I need. Thank you for keeping this website, I will be visiting it.
