  1. It’s summer, you’re hot, thirsty and may be thinking, "What sounds good to drink?" Well, summer is the perfect time to break out that blender and cool off with some refreshing summer cocktails. So call your friends, get out the barbeque and get ready to have some summertime fun.


    Electric Blue Lemonade

    Now this is a drink I absolutely love. You’ll need the following ingredients:

    1 1/2 oz. Vodka
    1/2 oz. Blue Curacao
    2 oz. Sweet and Sour Mix
    7-Up or Sprite
    Lemon Slice

    Directions: Use your blender and combine all the liquid ingredients. Blend on high for 15-20 seconds until smooth. Pour over a glass full of ice. Add a lemon slice as a garnish.


    Frozen Fruit Daiquiri

    This is a great summertime drink for both adults and kids. Just leave out the alcohol and you have a great healthy and refreshing summer cocktail for the kids. Gather the following ingredients. I personally like to have strawberry in my drink.

    2 oz. Rum
    1 oz. Lime Juice
    Tsp. Sugar
    1 cup crushed ice
    1/2 cup fruit

    Directions: Combine all the ingredients in a blender. Blend on high for about 30 seconds or until smooth. Pour, serve and enjoy.


    Long Island Ice Tea

    If you like alcohol, then this is the drink for you. Just combine all the ingredients in a tall glass filled with ice and top off with a splash of Coke-a-Cola.

    1/2 oz. Vodka
    1/2 oz. Gin
    1/2 oz. Rum
    1/2 oz. Tequila
    1/2 oz. Triple Sec
    1 oz. Sweet & Sour


    Iced Mochaccino

    Need a quick afternoon pick-me-up? This coffee drink is sure to cool you down and pick you up. Just add these two ingredients over ice. If you want to make it a Frappuccino, just put it all in the blender with 1/2 cup of ice and blend well. Add a squirt of chocolate syrup if you like your drink with a little extra chocolate.

    3 oz. Kailua Mocha
    2 oz. chilled espresso



    This is a refreshing drink for a hot summer day. You’ll need a shaker for this drink and the following ingredients.

    1 oz. Gold Rum
    2 oz. Pineapple Juice
    2 oz. Orange Juice
    1/2 oz. Grenadine
    Squirt of Lime Juice

    Directions:  In a shaker filled with ice combine all the ingredients. Shake well and strain into a glass. Top with a twist of lime for garnish if desired.


    Warning: Drink responsibility especially if there are children around or water activities. According to the Center for Disease Control, (CDC) department of National Center for Injury Prevention, (NCIPC) Lifeguard Effectiveness Group. "Each year, about 4,000 people die from drowning in the United States. Drowning was a leading cause of unintentional injury death among all ages in 1998, and the second leading cause of unintentional injury death among children ages 1-14 that same year. Approximately 50-75% of drowning occur in open water such as oceans, lakes, rivers, and ponds. About 60% of drowning deaths among children occur in swimming pools."
