Cool and Refreshing Summer Drinks

Lemon-Verbena Iced Tea

During the summertime we all like cool, refreshing drinks. Some of my favorites are iced teas and margaritas. Here are a just few varieties of refreshing teas.

Chamomile-Lavender Mint Iced Tea

Iced Mint Tea

Sparkling Cranberry Tea

Blackberry Iced Tea

These teas are so cool and refreshing!

I do enjoy margaritas, especially in the summer, but not all the sugar in them. Did you know you can make margaritas with at least half the calories by making homemade margaritas with splenda?

My favorite tea is the classic Southern sweet tea which we call "proper" tea!

My favorite margarita, by far, is the classic margarita.... just love the lemon-lime flavor.

What is your favorite summertime, cool and refreshing drink?

Let your boat of life be light, packed with only what you need - a homely home and simple pleasures, one or two friends, worth the name, someone to love and someone to love you, a cat, a dog, and a pipe or two, enough to eat and enough to wear, and a little more than enough to drink; for thirst is a dangerous thing.

  1. I am actually not a big tea or margarita drinker; however, these pictures made me want a big tall glass of iced tea. You should have a tea tasting (he, he)...if you did, I would come right on over. :)

  2. did YOU know that you can buy pre-made margarita mix that uses Splenda...YEP...I think Harris Teeter sales it :-) Although I'm not a fan, the neighborhood girls have sung its praises.

    I'll stick with champagne (when I'm not preggo) and and sparkling H2O with OJ while I am

  3. what a cool selection. I am a tea and margarita drinker ;) but don't like them too sugary though ...

    have a great weekend.
