    I have really enjoyed reading your blog so I nominated you for the One Lovely Blog and Very Inspiring Blogger Award. You can check it out here:
    Enjoy and congratulations,

  2. It may be my half-Russian ancestry, but I crave hot tea in the summer! The rationale is that the warmth makes you perspire, which cools you down! Our local coffee house makes a wicked cranberry hibiscus tea with honey, which is so refreshing either hot or cold.
    Thanks for the great post & linkup, & God bless,

      Well, the tea sounds wonderful Laurie, but where I live, the last thing I want to do is perspire – lol!
      Have a wonderful weekend and stay cool – however you can do it! 🙂

    I’ve been visiting here and all these dates are long ago. Did I miss something?

  6. Evelyn says:

    My favorite summer beverage is sun tea. I love the process of sitting the large glass jar in the sun to slowly brew the tea. And then add lots of ice and a little lemon and sweetener and then you have the perfect glass of ice tea:)
    Have a perfectly wonderful weekend!

  7. Lisa says:

    My favorite drinks this summer would have to be either my homemade iced tea or mango-pineapple. 🙂 Thanks for hosting! Have a great weekend! Many blessings, Lisa

      Sounds fab! I’m thinking of doing Summer Reciopes as next week’s theme so the beverage will still fit right in!

    Good Morning All,

    I love smoothies! My favorite drinks would include iced tea and pina coladas. I love frosty drinks in the hot weather. Happy Friday Everyone!

  18. Love ice cold water most of the time. Of course, smoothies with fresh fruit are also fantastic.

  19. Donna Heber says:

    I love limeade in the summer, but your smoothie sounds delicious!

  20. Fun theme today! Thanks!

  21. My favorite is strawberry slushies.

    Have a good Friday.

  22. That looks like an absolutely delicious summer drink and one I HAVE to give a try ^.^
    I’m a smoothie kinda girl, too. I love making my green drinks so I think I’m going to have to choose that for my go-to drink.

    That or the ever popular water. Lol

    Have a great weekend!

  23. Yum those watermelon smoothie look good!! I like the new Mango Lemonade from Simply

  24. Joyce says:

    While I am at the end of my computer time for the day, I will definitely be back to browse the recipes. Here in Louisiana is hot most of the year, I am a big fan of pop. But, living here in Louisiana I have learned to love refreshing glasses of lemon water, which also carries many healthy benefits.
