Five Favorite Summer Drinks
So I don't drink alcohol so this will probably be a boring post for some of you fancy pants people who like your cocktails & drinks...

But I still like some drinks... my favs...
ONE // Starbucks Green Tea Lemonade -
(1 pump of sweetener)
I used to be on a Peach Green Tea Lemonade, but I swear, they changed the peach flavoring & now it just sorta tastes like gasoline to me. But the plain green tea lemonade still is a favorite summer drink. Doesn't it just look refreshing? & who doesn't love lemonade in the summer?
TWO // Starbucks Very Berry Hibiscus Refresher
This stuff is FANTASTIC - & has hardly any calories in it at all. It has something like green tea extract or ginseng in it - but something that is supposed to help with a little pep too. I can never get enough of it. I like to ask for less ice though because they can pack that cup up so full of ice that you barely get 2 sips out of a cup. I'm onto you Starbucks.
THREE// Iced Coffee
Oh yeah baby... this is my daily drink in the Summer. I can make it at home but there's nothing better then McDonald's actually. I always say they put crack in it or something - its the best around. Yes, even better then Starbucks. I'm on a mission to try iced coffee everywhere now.
FOUR // Zevia (Grape)
These babies are my after dinner treat if I'm hungry. They have a fun grape flavor that makes me think of childhood & they are filling. I try to stock up when they are on sale because for a 6 pack, they can be pricey (the prices go up & down at my store - don't get that) - but I love these babies & don't even want to try another flavor.
FIVE // Iced Tea
Who doesn't love McAlister's Tea. Or Chick Fil-A's tea? Some places just KNOW how to do tea. I've really learned to love unsweet tea with lemon but like to do a little bit of half & half on some days I need a little bit of sweetness in my life. I'm so not good at making my own tea. There really is an art to it. I've let down southern women in general not knowing how to make it. My mom used to make it in batches - the sweetest tea you can imagine... & it would all be gone by the end of the day. Delish!
