Oh Linsey, my favorite summer time drink is without a doubt a frozen strawberry dacquari (with or without alcohol) With if I am at home, without if I am away from home. Too many drunk drivers on the highways

Joan said...

Hi Linsey....My favorite summer drink is probably lemonade. For something with a kick I do like a cold beer....I do like some fancy drinks, but just a plain cold one is refreshing to me....but not when driving! Joan

Lisa L. said...

I love cold iced tea with lemon.

Roxanne M said...

My new "favorite" summer drink is kind of a spin/cross between flavored lemonade and a mojito. I crush blueberries in a glass, add ice, bluberry vodka and lemonade with a lemon on the rim for garnish....yummo! Bet it would be even better with lemon sugar around the rim....mmmmm

Mandy said...

My most favorite drink of the moment is a cherry limeade from Sonic. Yummoh!!

Heather said...

Okay.......my favorite summer drink "with" a little kick is a Raspberry Daiquari.....I think I totally botched the spelling of that!!!! LOL I don't have them often 'cuz they have waaaaaaaaay too many calories!!!! LOL

Keri said...

As much as I love my margaritas, it's not specifically a summertime drink, meaning I enjoy one occasionally, all year round! the one drink I get excited for is good ol' sun-tea! I am a happy happy girl when my jug of tea is brewing in the sun! :) Thanks for the chance at some yummy candy! :)

Erika M. said...

Well nothing can beat a pina colada; however, lemonade is an absolute fav as well.

Shelly said...

Linsey, an ice cold beer is always good, but I would take a sweet iced tea any hot day or a Diet Coke. I am a DC addict ya know, so I did have to get that one in there!

Erika Martin - Stampin' Mama said...

WOW! What a generous give-away! Someone is going to win an amazing set of prizes!

I don't drink alcohol, but I LOVE my Shirley Temples, heavy on the grenadine. I've loved them since I was a kid. We used to go to a Chinese restaurant in Aponaug, RI and it was called Ho Hos. Us kids would always get Shirley Temples and we all looked forward to those cute little umbrellas in them. The dishes would be hot because they had just come out of the dishwasher and we would put our cheeks on them because, hey, when you're 7 years old, you don't care about getting germs all over your plate before you put food on it. :)

They also had these really cool ceiling tiles with decorations etched into them that lit up.

As kids, this place was AMAZING!

Sarah said...

What a selection for blog candy!!! I would have to say my favorite (& most requested) summer time dring is my fresh squeezed lemonaid, we could go through gallons of it in a matter of days. We like to keep ours on the slightly bitter side to give it a little extra kick.

Deb Neerman said...

Wooohoo, Lucky 13!!!

We make a frozen blender drink down here, called "A Hurricane" ... as in, "come 'on down, we're having A Hurricane!"

I love to make sun tea too .. with lots of berry flavored tea bags ... yum!

Thanks for the heads up, Lins, and thanks for the chance to win!!!

~Hugs, Deb

Angie said...

Oh my... Well, my favorite summer drink brings back memories! My family used to hang out with another family (or best friends) back when we were all stationed together in Vegas. We used to get together at least once a week for a summer bbq and I would always drink an ice cold Green Apple flavored Smirnoff. Ahhhh, the memories...

Cynthia said...

I love Sun Tea in the summer and also a ice cold beer. Great candy thanks Cynthia

Etha said...

Oh wow I'll give you a weird one for this super blog candy! this 'drink' will also work as a terrific pick me up when you're without energy and as a bonus it cures most all acute allergy attacks:
Run through your juicer fresh:
1/2 beet, 1 carrot and 1 stick of celery. Top off with orange juice, add some ice cubes and enjoy fresh!

Michelle said...

Wow, what a fun blog you have and what a great give away! My favorite summertime drink is sweet tea with lemon.

Ice cold Cosmopolitan! :-)

Latisha said...

There is nothing like a cold glass of lemonade or sweet tea on a hot summer day. Something with a kick, its my special recipe drink that has a BIG KICK but tastes like Sprite, its very dangerous.

mochamama said...

Well, my absolute favorite drink is a virgin Pina Coloda, unfortunately those baby's go straight to the hips and hang on forever!!

Stampin Cats said...

My favorite summer drink dependsw on my mood. Always something frozen or made with ice cream. A
Pink squirrel is made with white creme de cacao, creme de almond, grenadine, ice cream and milk. Hmmmm, good.

java diva said...

Nice package you got there! ;) I love blending up frozen coffee drinks sweetened with different syrups like coconut or english toffee. MMmmmm! Can't wait for the weather to warm up!

MelissaS said...

My neighbor makes a pitcher of "sangria" a few times a week during the summer, and we share over the fence on the summer weekends. It is a mix of orange juice, pineapple juice and rum and something else. I don't know the secret recipe, but is sure is good!
Thanks for sharing :)

cricketpe said...

My favorite summer drink is blue raspberry vodka mixed with lemonade. It tastes just like a blue popsicle!

Hi Linsey, not sure if this candy is open to us "foreigners" but hey I'm gonna leave a comment anyway. I don't really drink alcohol but love lemonade and diet coke, freezing cold straight from the fridge with lots of ice. Have a great day. Lots of love, Denise in the UK

Carolyn King said...

fun give away linsey--my favorite summertime drink is a strawberry daquari! yummo!

Anita said...

My favorite summer drink (actually any time of year drink) is Nellie's Punch! While on our very first cruise with Royal Caribbean Cruise Line, in the Caribbean, we stopped at a private beach on Haiti and were served Nellie's Punch. It was called that because we were on a section of beach that used to be Nellie's Village (Nellis was a "lady of the night"). SOOOOO Good - 2 shots 151 proof rum, 2 shots orange juice, 2 shots pineapple juice, 2 shots coconut syrup - blend with ice and serve! Don't forget, it HAS to be made with 151 proof rum or it won't taste right.

Mandiannie said...

i just love ice tea and lemonade. I think that if nothing but those two and water and 7-up existed in the world I'd be perfectly content. Until I get that craving for A&W rootbeer that is... favorite drink...I'll go with lemonade.

Char- said...

I drink cold tea year round. I also drink lemonade yearly. For summer I like a special treat. I drink rhubarbade(think sour green apples instead of lemons).

Diane said...

My oh my that is some great summer candy to go with a Pineapple and ginger ale (non alcoholic) with lots and lots of ice in a big bubba cup. I sip on it all day long and it stays cold in that bubba!!!
Thanks for a chance to win!

Debi H. said...

My favorite drink for the summer is Mango Margarita...mmmmmmmmm! My husband is the designated driver so that I can enjoy them.

kerry said...

Thanks for giving us this chance to win!

Carolina said...

You are such a generous lady - amazing blog candy!!! Margaritas, on the rocks with salt on the rim. Yummo and chips and guac on the side of course - this helps me enjoy more than 1 - wink!

HUGS friend, hope you're having a good week!

Ginny H said...

I guess my fave would have to be lemonade with lots of ice. Now when I was younger (a lot) I liked those slushies, especially the blue ones that turned your whole mouth blue ! Remember that?

Brooke said...

ooo! fun question! and you are such a cutie with amazing talent (i'm on Unity's DT.. so i've 'seen' you over at SCS)
ok mine is.. ABSOLUTE BABE MARTINI. these are to die for... :)

Julia Aston said...

What a great blog candy prize Linsey! you are just too generous!

Your question is easy - I love the 'tini' drinks - mango-tini or blue raspberry-tini are my favorites of the moment - although I only have them as a special treat once in a while - or I water them down a lot!

LISA said...

mmmmmm my favourite summer drink is Pimms :-) just love it on a hot day....not that we have to many of them in England lol

Suzanne said...

My favorite summer drink has ALWAYS been sun tea (use the sun to brew your tea, then add sugar of course!) So I was VERY disappointed to find out recently that sun tea can kill you and it is not a recommended drink :( That probably won't stop me though :O

dpkennedy said...

That is very generous of you Linsey! My beverage of choice for the summer is just a cold beer. While I like something a little fancier now and then, unless someone else is making it for me I'll just take a cold one!

Hey, Joan called it a cold one too! Woman after my own heart-we have more in common than we thought!

maiahs_momma said...

My fav summer time drink would have to be a grasshopper (a minty alcoholic drink) or a strawberry dacquari.

Hi Linsey, my favorite summer drink has to be strawberry lemonade! Yummy! Especially the spendy ones from restaurants -always better tasting than from the store. Great blog candy!! Hugs, michelle

StampingJoan said...

my favorite summer drink is a mango martini1 Rose's makes a great mango mix that you just add vodka to! Put it in your shaker with some ice and YUMMY!!!! So refreshing!

Simonne said...

What a great question Lins. I would have to say mine is peach milkshakes. I craved them like crazy the summer I was pregnant with Trenton and I still LOVE them :)

The Parkers said...

MOJITO!!!
Nothing beats the fresh cool mint w/a hint of lime... bubbly, a tad sweet (I like it sweet), and soooo REFRESHING!

Pina Colada Ice Cream Daquiri came in at a close 2nd! YUMM!

(Either drink can be made with or w/out alcohol)


***Great idea for Blog Candy Entries BTW!***

Jess said...

Frozen brandy slushes:
5 cups boiling water, 4 bags tea (can be green or regular), 1 cup white sugar, 1 large can frozen lemonade concentrate, 1 large can frozen orange juice concentrate, 2 cups brandy. Steep tea in boiling water for 10 minutes and remove teabags. Stir in sugar until dissolved. Stir in lemonade, OJ and Brandy. Place in a short, flat container (makes for easier serving) and freeze overnight. To serve, scrape/scoop frozen mixture into a glass about 3/4 full, and then top off with 7-up or Sprite (can use diet.) and stir So YUMMY!!

StampingJan said...

Hi Linsey!
My favorite summer-time drink is iced tea. The sun tea variety. It just tastes different. I love it nice and strong with a little splenda, over ice. It is so refreshing.

wendy - wakidd@gmail.com said...

Ooh - yummy candy!

My favorite summer drink is iced tea - in a HUGE platic cup with tons of crushed ice, lemon, sweet 'n low and a straw (of course!). If I have any fresh mint on hand, I'll swap the lemon out for mint.

Peggy S. from Ohio said...
