Summertime and the Living is Easy...

June 20, 2016, by Katie {The Mishaps and Mayhem of a Solitary Life}

Happy Monday Morning Gals! Katie here from The Mishaps and Mayhem of a Solitary Life!   Hope you all had a great Father's Day weekend with the special men in your lives...

And here it is Monday again!!  But the first official day of summer, so a big high five for that! Thanks for joining me for another installment of the The Blended Blog's Summer Series!

Last time around I shared my summer essentials, one of which was summer drinks!!!  So today I thought I'd delve into that some more.  Drinks are kinda my thing here at TBB!  {What else would the single girl talk about?!? HA!}  If I'm out, I'll get adventurous and try a drink, drink, quite simply because I'm not the one making it.  But when I'm on my own, the simpler, the better!!

Like the post's summertime and the living is easy.  And so are the drinks!!

Maybe it's an ice cold beer at the pool or on the beach!  Sam Summer Ale is a summer fave!

This pic unfortunately is not me on the beach or at the pool, but it was my first Sam summer of the season, so I thought I should document it!  (I was in the airport...)

Raise your hand if you've indulged in a few Margarita Mondays with friends during the summer?!?

I'm typically a red girl, but in the summer I'll switch things up and try some white wines.  They just seem to whisper summer to me!!  I love pinot grigio and savonuign blanc.  Lots of people drink Rose in the summer as well...I plan on giving it a try!!

The star of my spring blog, a cool refreshing prosecco...great for summer too!  Goes great on it's own or with a splash of oj or cranberry juice during brunch!  I'm not going to lie, I think I like more now than I did when I wrote my post!!  :)

All of these are great...whether your heading to the pool, the beach, a backyard barbecue or Sunday brunch with friends.

And because a post from me would not be complete without a recipe for something, I thought I'd share the fabulous summer drink my sister brought to our Memorial day party!  So easy! 3 ingredients! I bet you could even make it now!!  I am not sure what it's called (my sister didn't know either), so I'm just gonna go ahead and call it...

The Summer Chill
1 Frozen  Pink Lemonade Concentrate (thawed)
1 cup vodka
3 Bottles of the Light Beer of your choice

Mix all this in a pitcher (or jug), let chill for a few minutes and serve!  So easy, refreshing, and yummy!  It was almost punch-like.

I am not one who can usually mix my alcohol, but I was totally ok with this and it was so super yummy!  Give it a try....and let me know how you like it!!

Whatever your go-to summer drink may be, I hope it's enjoyed in the company of family and friends sharing memories and laughs together.  Happy Summer!!
