This is a drink served throughout Mexico. It is made with several different fruits. This is a watermelon drink.
Berrylicious Frozen Sangria Slush
This boozy, fruity frozen sangria is an adult version of the icy slushies we slurped down as kids. So refreshing on a hot summer night. Cheers!
I'm a big fan of sangrias and was experimenting with edible flowers. The tangy flavor of hibiscus blends very well with the sweet wine and fruit flavors in this drink! I love to eat the fruit in sangria, so the fruit to liquid ratio in this recipe is high. Feel free to reduce the fruit if you'd prefer!
Cold Brew Iced Coffee
Delicious iced coffee. The cold brew method guarantees a drink that's refreshing without being bitter.
Salty Lemon Gin and Tonic
Gin and tonics are one of my favorite cocktails, but I often like experimenting with different add-ins instead of the traditional lime wedge. The salt from the preserved lemon really brings out the natural botanical flavors in the gin.
Smoothies are an easy way to get more fruits and vegetables into your day, but calories can add up fast. For a smoothie that's only about 200 calories, follow our formula and use 1 cup fresh fruit or vegetables and/or cooked, frozen vegetables + 1 cup fruit juice. Blueberries and grape juice are featured here.

Chef John's Whiskey Sour
Day drinking is the best drinking, and if that day happens to be a very sunny, hot day, there's no better cocktail to enjoy than a classic whiskey sour. I'm very excited to show you my favorite formula for this incredibly refreshing, super simple, absolutely delicious drink. Garnish with a slice of blood orange and a Luxardo cherry.

Homemade Blackberry Lemonade
This homemade lemonade is easy to make and gets a flavor boost from blackberries. The end result is light and refreshing which is perfect for those hot summer days.
The Real Mojito
This is an authentic recipe for mojito. I sized the recipe for one serving, but you can adjust it accordingly and make a pitcher full. It's a very refreshing drink for hot summer days. Be careful when drinking it, however. If you make a pitcher you might be tempted to drink the whole thing yourself, and you just might find yourself talking Spanish in no time! Tonic water can be substituted instead of the soda water but the taste is different and somewhat bitter.
