Frozen Cherry Lemonade #BloggerCLUE

Hello! And Happy August C.L.U.E. Day! That’s right, it’s time again for Blogger C.L.U.E. reveal day, and what a sweet day it is. This month we aimed to Beat the Heat, and boy did I try. Have I mentioned how hot it is in Florida? Oh, right, I did. Can the weather break already? I know, I know– it’s too soon, I’ll keep enjoying the beach and be quiet.

 

Beyond a refreshing dip in the Atlantic, I guess we have to find the most delectable ways to keep cool. And. boy did I find one on Sew You Think You Can Cook. This Frozen Cherry Lemonade is everything you need to have the coolest summer, ever. And, it’s so quick and simple to put together, you won’t even break a sweat.

Lauren’s blog was a delight to read through. Sew You Think You Can Cook is full of so many wonderful things, it’s primarily a food blog but occasionally takes on the guise of a crafting blog, a party blog, and a travel blog.  ((All of my favorite things!))

As I was searching through Sew You Think You Can Cook, I was drawn to all the variety! There was so much to choose from, but I had to keep my eye out for something to help me Beat the Heat, and this is definitely it. There were a few close, runners up- including the Pineapple Rosemary Lemonade, Blueberry Iced Tea, and the Sparkling Strawberry Lemonade. (Can you tell I was thirsty?)

I kept going back and forth between the pineapple lemonade and the cherry, and something about the cherry just tipped the scales. It was a perfect choice, as you may have seen I love anything with lemon, and I’m eager to mix cherries in where I can. They’re good for arthritis I hear, and these old knees aren’t what they used to be. 

In just a few, simple steps you have a super refreshing, homemade drink to share. I hope you enjoy is as much I as I did. I didn’t even make and tweaks or adjustments. Well, maybe just one twist… you’ll see at the end. Thanks, Lauren!

If you want to twist it up and have an at home Happy Hour, bring a bevvie to the beach, or pack a cocktail for that end of summer BBQ… add an once of vodka and a topper of Lemon LaCroix to each glass; you’ll have the most delightful cocktail. I punched one up for H, and he was sold at first sip.
