3 Cool Summer Drinks

As LA peaks at 100 degrees this past week, I thought I’d share with you guys 3 cool drinks for this summer! I’m not a huge fan of alcohol to be honest (except the occasional glass of wine with Allen on date night) so I’m always looking for yummy (and pretty) juices to try. If you guys are throwing a BBQ this July 4th weekend like me .. try serving these drinks to not only wow your guests but keep them refreshed and cool!

1. Strawberry & Rose

I know, strawberry.. yes, but rose.. what? Strawberry is my favorite fruit and I love how sweet strawberries taste. No matter what season it is, strawberries are always a great fruit to have around. It’s a great source of Vitamin-C and can decrease cardiovascular disease. I always have roses around the house, and including the roses is a fun way to spice up your drink! (Not literally of course.) Make sure you wash the petals first!

2. Fresh Coconut Water

Let me tell you guys .. there is no greater accomplishment than finally breaking open a coconut. I mean .. except giving birth of course. But anyway, I’ve always loved coconut but there’s nothing quite like eating fresh coconut. Aside from the fact that coconuts are so good for your skin and overall body, I love how creamy and yummy coconut tastes. You don’t need to be on vacation to enjoy a good coconut!

3. Pineapple

Pineapple has to be the trending fruit of the year. But aside from how picturesque pineapples are, they’re just plain delicious and refreshing! Cut them into pieces and add them to your drink .. or find out 7 more ways to use pineapple. This is one fruit that you must have this summer!

    I love these recipes! Look so delicious and perfect for summer! I would add some chia seeds into the drinks. Not only are chia seed healthy, but also very delicious.

  • For me, there is nothing more thirst-quenching than watermelon! Adore it! Love strawberries too, who doesn’t? However, the coconut…bought it, broke it and got totally disappointed. The water was awful and there was just not much of it, the coconut itself was hard and tasteless :( Oh well, I guess I picked a wrong coconut. Great photos and tips here!

    I love the drink ideas. But how do you like actually make the strawberry drink? Lol, I thought the coconut were pieces of shredded turkey at first!

    Chriselle, I love reading your blog, but this is the first time I’ver ever commented! I was wondering with the drinks, do you just put the fruit in cold water, or do you heat the water, steep the fruit, and then cool with ice like iced tea? Thanks so much!!!

  • Danny & Alex says:

    Wow, these look absolutely amazing. We’re definitely going to try the pineapple one, because that’s our favorite fruit!
