Keep cool in the summertime heat and make sure you stay well-hydrated.

You know, with caffeine or booze. They’re such wonderful rehydrators and replenishers.

  1. Best posting I’ve seen in ages…Coming from a tennis player in the desert-You made me more thirsty!

  2. Vanilla Bailleys Slushie?? Woah. If you ever visit NZ, please come see me. We could have so much fun. :D

  3. Great inspiration for hydration, thanks! Watermelon and watermelon cocktails are my favorite way to hydrate over the summer. :-)

  4. I’m so disappointed because I just finished off my regular hot coffee! It’s almost 100* here in FL so a little ice and vanilla in that would have been totally perfect ;) I’ll put this one on the back burner and whip it up tomorrow morning for a little iced latte outside with the greenery :)

    1. Wow it’s hot there! It’s like 62F and overcast right now and I’m about to go for a run.

  5. I’ve been loving strawberry-lemon smoothies lately….also frozen like popsicles! Mmmm

  6. oh my gosh — bailey’s infused peanut butter?!? GENIUS!! i’ll definitely give this a try — yum yum yum!

  7. What a great idea using the cookie butter in a shake!

    I love that.
    On my way to do clients and grab me a nice giant breve latte from starbucks!!
    going to be 90 here with 80% humidity. UGH

    1. 62F here and major coastal marine layer….could be tailgating weather actually! I’m sure you remember these days. Stay cool!

  8. Oh, my deep deep love for iced coffee. I had two yesterday and then drank a third on the way home. But my body started revolting and decided to only finish half of a Venti. What a wuss.

    Have a great weekend!

    1. I guess by number 3 that could happen :)

      Hope you guys are having another fabulous day!

  9. I actually only drink water and the occasional cocktail. Looks like I’m missing out on a lot of great drinks.

  10. I have been making sparking tea sprtizers. They are so delish and refershing during these crazy hot days. I’m working on my link now!

  11. If we’re talking “hydration”, then definitely just good ol’ iced coffee. Also, on the fourth, my brother’s girlfriend brought over that “Frooty” UV- supposed to taste like fruit loops. That was pretty good mixed with punch and a pinch of Seagrams.

    Chocolate peanut butter smoothies have also been my forte as of late. Yuuuuum.

    1. Frooty UV – never heard of it but gosh, sounds pretty awesome and so do those smoothies!

  12. Iced coffee, teecinno, and water with flavored stevia drops are my favorite drinks to chug this summer with our high temps and drought conditions here in the Midwest.

  13. Hydrating currently with a largeeee creamy iced coffee. And hydrated a little too well last night with wine, oh well!

    1. That’s what you’re supposed to do as a young and single 20something on a Friday night :)
