Can you believe that Memorial Day is already here? There’s no denying that summer has arrived!
I love summer. Perhaps it stems from being a kid and not having school in summer.. but I also think it’s cuz there’s always so many fun things to do this time of year. I’m a big fan of bucket lists so I thought I’d share a few things I jotted down for my summer bucket list this year:
What’s on your summer bucket list??
Bring on the memories and sunshine – and tasty cold beverages!
There’s nothing that screams summer more than lemonade – so why not jazz it up a little and make it into a crowd pleasing boozy treat?
A FROZEN boozy lemonade!
There’s nothing better than a frozen icy cold treat when it’s hot so this boozy slush is just the answer. I’m all about snacking on this by the pool or during a Memorial Day BBQ. I served it in these cute mini dessert glasses (with mini spoons!) but I bet it would even be great served in one of those red solo cups
This is one of those quick prep ahead beverages. You just mix it up, throw it in the freezer, then just serve it on up. On this episode of Drink & Dish I’ll show you how easy it is to make this Vodka Lemonade Slush – and Ari will show you how to make her Loaded Baked Potato Salad.
If you wanted to make this beverage a little more drink like you could also pour in some Sprite or Ginger Ale to serve it – but I think it is pretty fun to eat it like a slush!
