Favourite summer beverage for me is also a toss-up - between ice-cold water or a nice cold Diet Coke!
Smoothies are yummy too :)

I'm very new to the blogging world and LOVE yours. Your recipes are fresh and your comments are entertaining. MY favorite summer beverage has been my own breakfast smoothies.. with Mango Vanilla being at the top!!

It was my morning iced coffee. I miss it so...

There's a little gyro shack here in Boise that not only makes a dang good gyro, but also a raspberry lemonade made with pureed ripe raspberries. Mmmmm...hot damn it's good!

PS: I made your zucchini blueberry muffins last night. They were delicious, and delightfully friendly to my son with diabetes. I've gotta thank you for that little gem of a recipe. In fact, I haven't made one of your recipes that we haven't liked. So thanks. =)

Kathy said...

My husband created my favorite summer drink - Peppermint Limeade sweetened with a tiny pinch of stevia. It is so refreshing!

Gabby said...

Hmmm...my fave would have to be lemonade and all the variations! Like cucumber lemonade. That's sooo good :)

Kristin said...

My fav summer drink is a mojito. Nothing too sweet, more dry and minty. And then second would be sangria. Sangria just makes me think of summer.

Cherry Blossoms said...

Oh goodness, I would LOVE to win this print to hang in my kitchen! My favorite summer beverage would have to be raspberry lemonade with herbal tea mixed in! Cool, refreshing, and delicious!

Megan and Keli'i said...

Favorite summertime beverage: DIET DR. PEPPER. Your Mom is a girl after my own heart :). And spinach smoothies, with a cup of milk, three handfuls of spinach, two scoops protein powder, a banana, and a tbsp of peanut butter. Delish, healthy, and even my kids dig it.

Carolyne said...

I love grape soda. It's pretty much delicious!

I hope I win. That's sounds terribly, horribly selfish, but I really really want that print Thanks for your generosity!

The P*dunc's said...

Being in my first trimester all summer, Diet Coke for the headaches and V8 vegetable juice for the cravings (which, btw, is delicious going down, but not coming up).

sarah22277 said...

Margaritas. Any flavor, really.

Beth Brehob said...

I love a good homemade smoothie. I recently got a recipe from Or So She Says.com for a tropical fruit slushie that is really yummy and I have made several times in the last month. YUM!

Emily said...

Sierra Mist from Taco Bell.

Amie said...

Oh this is an easy one! Hands down my favorite summer beverage is my mom's homemade iced tea. It is a staple to every summer memory. It is just sweet enough, and she floats fresh mint leaves or orange slices in it. There is nothing more refreshing! We are both adults, but yet my sister and I look for it every time we go to her house for a visit.

Robyn said...

My favorite summer beverage would have to be green smoothies. I drink them for breakfast all the time and they are so refreshing. And lots of water too...when it's hot outside I feel like chugging water all day long!

Shanicherie said...

My absolute favorite summer beverage are izze's! Oh how in love thee, let me count the ways! In fact, I may go buy some tomorrow. YUM.

Lindsey said...

Hmm...favorite summer beverage would have to be a cherry limeaid from Sonic. Thank goodness for happy hour because I go there at least twice a week to get my drink on!

Sarah said...

Ooh. I would love this for my kitchen!

Okay, favorite drink? Does shave ice count? If not, I choose Brazillian Limeade. Mmm.

Hollie and Ryan Tyler said...

I just found a new one: Diet Mountain Dew with a squirt of cherry syrup!

Hen Pecks said...

I'm not entering, not that I don't like the prize, it's just Logophilia is my oldest chix and it wouldn't be right for me to enter - I just had to stop by to say:

Thank you Megan and Keli'i! Finally a classy soul who puts the Doctor first on the drink list. Well done.

Joy said...

Sun Tea!! I like to put frozen strawberries in it in lieu of ice. Hmmm...summer:) Thanks for a chance to win!

Right now I'm loving a chocolate covered cherry shake from a little place here in town.

I've been drinking a new drink lately that is delicious--an orange/creamsicle made with milk and OJ. YUM. Recipe coming soon.

Hannah said...

I love this print! And my favorite summer drink would have to be sweet tea, since I'm in the South. Especially if it's poured over some Sonic crushed ice!

L said...

Favourite summer beverage for me is ice cold water with icecubes..

Btw; I am a Julie&Julia-fan. A big one.

Muffin said...

Have to say Smoothie is my fave. :) Next to water.
And a J&J-poster would fit perfectly in our kitchen! :)

Tricia said...

a 32 oz'er with minimal ice, about three seconds of lemonade and 17 seconds of fountain diet coke. and a rice krispy treat to wash it down.

Janelle said...

I really only ever drink water, but I once had a frozen lemonade with little bits of pineapple, watermelon and mango in it and it was amazing!

JerseyBaby said...

Fresh strawberry lemonade!

Water:) Plain and simple.

Jennifer said...

Casey said...

Frozen strawberry margaritas! :)

Ali said...

Fresh fruit smoothies. Delicious.

Tammy said...

Strawberry Lemonade!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Liz said...

This summer, it's all about Dr. Pepper. Normally it's something fruity though, with rasberries or strawberries in it.

Andria said...

I have been loving Diet Sunkist for quite a while.

Celena said...

Ice cold raspberry lemonade, or something mixed with vodka is great too!

Colleen Kuerth : Truly Noted said...

I love to make raspberry sun tea and then drink it with lots of ice! I don't like to sweeten mine, but a little simple syrup is a nice addition if you want it.

Katy said...

I am hooked on Crystal Light lemon ice tea!! I do love Trader Joes's Blueberry Green Tea made into ice tea too.

elizabeth said...

Citrus Peach Fresca. Zero calories. Lots of goodness.

Jeff and Lacy said...

Love that print! My favorite summer beverage is a fountain Pepsi (not diet) with "poop ice" and a squeeze of lemon. Now I need to go get one!

Jamie said...

I would have to say at the Moment— Frozen Hot Chocolate, The serendipity Recipe is my Favorite but Dairy Queen makes one very well!!

Rebecca said...

hmmmm. i am a water girl all the way. but, when, at the end of the day, i realize i haven't eaten any fruit, i whip up a mean fruit smoothie.

Pomegranate Lemonade. You can find this little gem at Nordstroms Cafe in front of the store. It's fantastic. My other favorite? A Clementine Izze. Yum!

[Morgan] said...

:)

Linda said...

strawberry lemonade!

Jelli Bean said...

I like raspberry iced tea! Mmm!

Heather said...

Oh gosh! So hard to choose...I love ice cold summer drinks! I will have to go with any kind of iced coffee...my favorite.

Hannah said...

Water!

{Erica} said...

That Megan sure is a talented gal!

Mine would be a three way tie. ce cold water (I'm being serious), Jamba Juice Peach Pleasure (minus bananas, add orange sherbet) and a grape lime rickey.

YUM!

Nathan & Michelle Watabe said...

I agree with all those people who love ice water most. I don't like to drink my calories (believe me, that's the only place I'm willing to cut calories). So if I do want something flavored I do Crystal Lite (Wal-mart brand, much cheaper, just as good) lemonade with lemon slices floating in it.

Amanda said...

Oooh that's a hard one. I love strawberry lemonade and cherry limeade! Yummo!

Jane Anne said...

My favorite summer beverage is Fresh squeezed orange juice - with pulp, of course. If I can't get the real thing, whenever Simply Orange is on sale I snag it!!

Felicia said...

It's a recent discovery, but I'd have to say Cockta (pronounced Coke-ta). It's a soft drink they have in some countries in Europe.

Mrs. Pingel said...

Homemade Lemonade or TAZO Passion Iced Tea with Stevia. Mmmmm....

Heitkampfam said...

Large unsweetened iced tea with lots of ICE!

cat+tadd said...

ec said...

my sister made me some watermelon lemonade the other day, and it was delightful.

i think the fact that your pb sandwich cookies account for any & all weight gain this year should count for an extra entry. ha! kidding. but really, they are delicious.

Jodi said...

Mmmm mine is this pina drink from MexSal in Provo. It's pineapple but not super sweet and it has tiny bits of fruit in it. So good.

Siggy Spice said...

Diet Coke with a slice of lemon!

Emily Taylor said...

My favorite summer drink is lemonade with fresh raspberries in it.

Elder Ryan Hall said...

Definitely a Lime Rikki - club soda, grenadine, lots of crush ice, half a lime, a marshino cherry and a straw. ahhh...refreshing and looks amazing.

jek1977 said...

I love lemonade in the summer. It reminds me of hot summer days on the farm, especially the evenings in the wheat field during harvest. We took a break for supper in the shade of the grain trucks. Even with a bit of wheat chafe stirred in, that lemonade always quenched the thirst. Love your blog. I'm most certainly not the best cook in the world so your recipes get me out of the rut of spaghetti and tacos I sometimes get stuck in.

Jennifer said...

Definitely raspberry lemonade!

Kurt, Amy and kids! said...

I don't care... as long as it has ice! Its too hot to drink lukewarm drinks!
