Summer Drinks To Refresh You

After a few hours in the sun, it feels so good to quench that thirst with a refreshing fruity drink. Here are some recipes to try out this summer.

Raspberry Iced Tea


  • 1 gallon water

  • 3 (3 ounce) gallon-size tea bags

  • 1 cup fresh raspberries

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • ½ cup powdered lemonade mix

  • 1 lime, sliced

  • ice cubes


1. Bring the water to a boil in a large pot, and stir in the tea bags, raspberries, and sugar until the sugar has dissolved.

2. Allow the mixture to steep until the desired level of tea flavor is reached, 3 to 5 minutes; remove tea bags, and stir in the lemonade mix until dissolved.

3. Pour tea into pitchers, and add lime, and ice to cool.


Strawberry Kiwi Slush


  • 2 cups crushed ice

  • ¾ pint fresh strawberries, hulled

  • ¾ cup grape juice (such as Welch's®)

  • 1 large kiwi fruit, peeled

  • ¼ cup water

  • ¼ cup lemon juice


1. Blend ice, strawberries, grape juice, kiwi fruit, water, and lemon juice in a blender until it reaches an even slush consistency, 25 to 35 seconds.


Vintage Lemonade


  • 5 lemons

  • 1 ¼ cups white sugar

  • 1 ¼ quarts water


1. Peel the rinds from the 5 lemons and cut them into 1/2 inch slices. Set the lemons aside.

2. Place the rinds in a bowl and sprinkle the sugar over them. Let this stand for about one hour, so that the sugar begins to soak up the oils from the lemons.

3. Bring water to a boil in a covered saucepan and then pour the hot water over the sugared lemon rinds. Allow this mixture to cool for 20 minutes and then remove the rinds.

4. Squeeze the lemons into another bowl. Pour the juice through a strainer into the sugar mixture. Stir well, pour into pitcher and pop it in the fridge! 5. Serve with ice cubes.
