Three Icy Treats To Cool Off

By -

Chaz chiming to say I hope everyone had a happy and safe 4th. I was able to spend my free time at various BBQ’s, parties, & of course the pool, where I realized most of my friends seem to think they’re professional bartenders! (probably b/c most of them used to be!) They entertained me with refreshing homemade party drinks made for good summer fun & friends!

Three icy treats really stood out! They’re easy and perfect for hot summer days by the pool or parties into the night.

Avocado Margaritas
Sangria Ice Pops
Honeydew Refresher

~Avocado Margaritas: serves 3

In a blender crush 2 cups ice, 1 scooped avocado,  2oz. triple sec, 4oz. FRESH lime juice, 6oz. of your favorite tequila, and a pinch of fresh cilantro. Finally use spicy salt to rim the glass!

Fill popsicle molds 2/3 full with a sweet white wine, like a late harvest Moscato. Which is great because of the sugar content. Chop your favorite fruits, I prefer strawberries, blueberries, & cherries, and add to molds. The more fruit you add the less likely they are to settle at the top. Freeze and enjoy!

One of my favorite summer fruits is honeydew. So when I tasted this simple concoction, I fell in love! Cube 4-1/2 cups honeydew and freeze 30 minutes. Blend honeydew with 1-1/2 cups lime sherbet and 2 tbsp FRESH lime juice. Garnish with a strawberry and serve immediately! A delicious mocktail, but for a fun twist add 6-8oz. of your favorite liquor.

 

I hope you’re able to enjoy even just one of these awesome drinks! Then try out some of your own ideas in your backyard, have a party and enjoy summer!

Happy BBQing!!  CHEERS
