Summer is here and it has come in full force over here! I absolutely LOVE the hot weather, but with 2 toddler boys and being outside almost all day I need something that cools me down, is easy to make, and is ONLY for me, but if the kids get a sip it's the the end of the world because like I said.. easy to make and put together.
So I was grocery shopping, and being summer 1/2 of my groceries comes from the drink isle. So I was walking down the isle and came across this new drink I've never seen before... OCEANSPRAY® MOCKTAILS! Of course the name and the packaging caught my eye right away. I'm living off of liquids basically. That's horrible to say, but sometimes true. So I love finding new yummy drinks!
So of course I threw a bottle of some in my cart. I couldn't wait to get home and try it honestly.
So I finished up shopping, got home and put it in my fridge to let it cool for a bit. About an hour later, I poured me a glass straight out of the bottl over some crushed ice.
I downed it! So yummy! Tasted like a tropical oasis! I literally could have carried the bottle around with me that entire afternoon.
After my second glass full I was looking as the bottle and saw that there were serving options:
-You can drink it plain like I was (obviously!) at this point the bottle was half empty!
-You can add seltzer water, some bubbly, or some sprite..
-Or you can go super tropical and add rum.
I needed a little pick me up this afternoon, and I like red bull energy drink, and so I thought I would be adventurous and do a little bit of each!
So here's what I did...
TROPICAL ENERGY MOCKTAIL:
•First thing, get your most favorite cup. A cute cup always makes for a great drink! (At least that's what I think!)
•Lots of Crushed Ice
•3/4 part Red Bull
•1/4 part Oceanspray® Tropical Citrus Paradise Mocktail™
Mix it all together... and you've got yourself a delicious afternoon refresher!
They have a lot of different flavors of Mocktail Drinks as well... So if this Tropical one isn't for you, go find another. Because I guarantee you will find one that sounds yummy to you!
Now go and make yourself a yummy drink and enjoy your summer!
The Blonde who Bakes
i don't know about you, but I am a major sucker for donuts.. I LOVE them!!! I don't like just any donut tho. It has to be just the right consistency of cake, and OF COURSE yummy chocolate or another kind of delicious glazed icing. Sprinkles are always an added bonus!
So today for National Donut Day I could not pass up the opportunity to make a sweet something to go along with fun food holiday.
So I will be sharing with you my super delicious and ever so sweet "Sprinkle Chip Donut Cake" recipe.
