Nothing says summer like sipping a cold drink while reading a good book, soaking up the sun on the beach, or tending to the garden. I am pulling together some of the best beverage recipes for summer, including my very favorite drinks.

This summer I am filling mason jars with some of these summer beverages and tucking them into the cooler for picnics, parties, and beach days.

15 Best Summer Drink Recipes - Real: The Kitchen and Beyond

Some of my favorite memories involve a nice fruity summer drink, like a long ago summer in Nicaragua, the place that inspired both my Blueberry Honey Lemonade and Strawberry Piña Coladas {Mocktail or Cocktail}. The summers there are hot, with the sun beating down and mosquitoes buzzing all around. We drank a lot of lukewarm water but definitely enjoyed soda in a bag a bit more.

Still other drink recipes were created for recipe contests, like this Sweet and Spicy Watermelon Gazpacho Mary, which is a super healthy energy booster to any day.

And then we have recipes such as Watermelon Smoothies, Mango Piña Coladas {Mocktail or Cocktail}, Blood Orange Sorbettos, and Blackberry Melon Lemonade to just refresh and brighten our hot humid days.

If we are lucky enough we might just be able to get our hands on a thick and delicious apple cider to make these fall-like apple cider slushies with or without.
