Refreshing drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) - for the kids drinks I just through them together with ingredients I had in the house, but I've tagged some good looking recipes below.

* Sparkling Margarita

* Ginger-Citrus Cold Brew

* Watermelon-Berry Limeade

* Turmeric-Mango Tonic

* Virgin Pina Colada

* Virgin Strawberry Daiquiri


* We travel to Puerto Vallarta almost every year and I usually

bring a few reusable cups home from the drinks we get at the pool (Sheraton Buganvillias Vacation Club) It makes it more fun for the kids and they pretend they are in a resort and not at their pool at home :)

Happy Cooking & Eating!
