Throwback Thursday: Summer drinks

The sun is shining, the air is warm, your feet are dangling in the cool pool water and you're rockin' hot new summer shades...but your hand is empty. And that, my friends, is the problem I'm here to fix. Check out these recipes for summer drinks that are sure to please any palate. This summer I am loving the new Smirnoff Sorbet Light Vodkas. Available in 3 flavors: lemon, raspberry pomegranate and mango passion fruit flavors, they offer so many ways to have a deliciously light, refreshing cocktail. My favorite recipe is the light pomegranate berry punch.

If that doesn't strike your fancy, does a riesling strawberry slushy sound good to you? How about a raspberry beer cocktail or a cherry beer margarita? If so, check out those summer drinks and more.

If you're looking for a refresher without the kick, I've got you covered, too. Here are 7 great sparkling recipes for summer drinks sans the alcohol.

And for the throwback, check out my timeless sangria recipes posted last year.

Don't forget to stay hydrated on these warm days - throw some sliced fruits or cucumber into your water for extra flavor and vitamins.
