No Fuss Drinks for Hot Summer Days

Last week The Blind Pig Gang (plus a couple extras) spent a few days on the beautiful Lake of the Ozarks.  It was a much needed change of scenery and get away for all of us.  This week in Texas it is predicted that we will hit over 100 degrees on the thermometer.  When it is hot outside, no one wants to spend lots of time prepping a drink.  You want something cool trickling down your throat and fast!  To help you with your thirst on hot days, we have compiled a list of some of our favorite no fuss drinks.

No Fuss Drink #1:  Borghetti Coke Float

This yummy drink has 3 basic ingredients. Caffe’ Borghetti, Coke and Vanilla Ice Cream.  Mix them all together in your glass, sit back and enjoy summer like a kid.

No Fuss Drink #2: Cucumber Gin Spritz

Cucumber Gin Spritz

Cool as a cucumber did not become a popular saying for nothing.  The cooling and refreshing flavor of cucumbers with a little spritz makes this beverage a very refreshing cocktail.

No Fuss Drink #3: Mint Highball

We shared this drink with you a few weeks ago.  It’s made our list again with its two basic ingredients and minty flavor. What can be more refreshing than mint?

No Fuss Drink #4: Paloma

This  Mexican cocktail, which is Rhonda’s go-to summer drink, had to make the list.  Hey friends, Kroger now has Squirt soda, so you can make a Paloma even easier!

No Fuss Drink #5: Raspberry Mojito

Cubans knew what they were doing when they invented mojitos for hot, humid weather.  Our fun twist on a traditional mojito has the light flavor of berries to help you cool your toes.

No Fuss Drink #6: Salty Dog

The Salty Dog is an easy candidate for this list.  It has two basic ingredients with a cucumber for garnish. Mix some vodka with a little grapefruit soda, plop in a slice of cucumber and head for the pool.

No Fuss Drink #7: Tequila Watermelon Fizz

This easy refreshing drink is made with tequila, seltzer water and watermelon.  It’s light, refreshing and doesn’t weigh you down in the summer heat.

 

Try one or try one each day of the week! So which drink are you going to cool off with first?  We’d love to hear about it.
