Oh how I love our Facebook group! It’s become my favorite place on the Internet, there’s so much good sharing and thoughtful conversations… and you guys always have the best suggestions and recommendations!

“Does anyone have an easy, go-to summer drink? I’m not a big fan of beer or white wine and red doesn’t do it for me in the summer so I’m venturing into liquor (which I’ve found is usually just ok). I’ve done vodka, la croix, and lemonade and liked that so I’m looking for more drinks like that; minimal ingredients and easy to mix. I saw Simply watermelon lemonade on the grocery store website and thought about adding that to my next order. Any favorites you’d like to share?”
And the comments were amazing. There were over a hundred great ideas, at least! For today’s post I thought it would be fun to consolidate my favorites into a post.
Before we get into your suggestions, one of my favorite things to do is make a big pitcher of Aperol Spritzes, pictured above! The recipe is simple – lots of ice, a cup of Aperol, two cups of Prosecco, and three cups of seltzer! EASY and delicious (and yes, I usually use orange slices not lemons but I didn’t have any oranges on hand. I actually find the lemon was nice – it cuts the sweetness a bit!).
