Easy Peasy Spring Into Summer Refresher

springsummerrefresher

Summer is fast approaching, and I am always looking for creative ways to keep me hydrated and make my drink look pretty!

I’ve seen pretty drinks with flowers or herbs, but I wanted something much simpler than that!

Cue: Colored Ice Cubes…

There are a ton of variations on this drink, but I stuck with just using Sprite or 7Up and some Kool Aid to make this Spring Into Summer Refresher.

What You Will Need

-1 Pink & 1 Yellow Kool Aid Packs

-Sprite or 7Up

-2 Ice Cube Trays

Directions: Pour Pink Kool Aid packet into some water, mix, and pour into ice cube tray, and freeze for about 1hr (repeat same process w/ yellow packet).  Once ice cubes are set, place 2 cubes of each color into glass and fill glass with Sprite or 7Up.  Put a dainty straw inside, sip, and get ready to feel refreshed!

Of course you can always add a splash of vodka for some cocktail fun if you’d like 🙂

Enjoy!
