As I’m sitting here enjoying the beautiful weather we have been having I am thinking about Summer and the entertaining that it brings. BBQ’s and friends make a great combination. Last week I shared a yummy drink recipe that was a hit with the whole family and you readers sure seemed to like it too. Since it was so popular I decided to share another great recipe, this time only for the adults to enjoy! A yummy summer treat from Minute Maid to help you kick off Summer.
When I think back to what our summer was like growing up, I remember a staple growing up was pink lemonade. This Minute Maid Summer inspiration is a hit with a bit of nostalgia. The Minute Maid Pretty in Pink Punch is based on Minute Maid® Pink Lemonade frozen concentrate. This is a simple recipe that is sure to get the mom’s out there in the mood for summer and delight at the cocktail parties that are sure to be a part of your summer get together and BBQ’s. So here it is:
Minute Maid Pretty in Pink Punch
1 can 295mL Minute Maid® Pink Lemonade frozen concentrate (unthawed)
1 can 250mL BACARDI® Mixers Strawberry Daiquiri frozen concentrate (unthawed)
1 cup BACARDI® Superior white rum (optional)
1 cup Water
4 cups Ice cubes
In blender, combine pink lemonade, daiquiri frozen concentrates, rum (optional) and water; add ice cubes. Pulse until blended and frothy, about one minute.
Place in an elegant Summer glassware and garnish with a Strawberry or other favorite berry.
As an added tip, please note that all drinks have the option of adding/excluding alcohol. This way everyone in the family can enjoy these great Minute Maid drinks.
These drinks are an excellent accessory to any party over the Summer or at any event such as a bridal shower or any event where the ladies will meet for a festive occasion. Looking for more yummy sweet summer treats? Try the Sparkling Grape Lemonade and this “Lime in the Coconut” cocktail.
This drink was a great take back to summer as a child and a taste of what Summer treats will be in store our family this year.
