Our Favorite Summer Drink a Fun Twist on Sharing Goodies!

We have been loving stirring up yummy combinations for our drinking delight this summer. Creamy raspberry lemonade has been our favorite though and the one we choose to share with someone nearby and the one I want most especially to share with you too. I started a Pinterest board with non-alcoholic summer drinks. It's so much fun to create fun drinks and a fun spin on taking someone goodies! Short on time, but have someone on your mind?! Well taking someone a summery drink is the perfect thing I think! It's much quicker to make a drink then to bake or cook something, but still has the same effect of bringing food. I bought the pitcher at Wally World and then wrapped the ribbon around the pitcher with the paper straws. I just put plastic wrap on the top and we didn't have any spills transporting it.

         Creamy Raspberry Lemonade Recipe
  • 1 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice or from concentrate
  • 1½ cups sugar
  • 1½ cups half n half (half n half makes everything better)
  • 5 cups water
  • 1 small package of raspberries
  • 2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

InstructionsPuree raspberries and 5 cups water using a blender. Strain the puree through a strainer and into pitcher. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir. I wouldn't keep it in the fridge for over a week, but chances are it will be gone shortly after you make it haha. Make it like this once and see how you can tweak it to your taste. 

Summer is quickly fleeting and I hope you will take the time to mix this drink up for yourself and someone else!

Scatter sunshine my friends!
