Temperatures are rising and this summer is getting HOT HOT HOT. As the temperatures increase, all I seem to be craving is some delicious cold drink. With these six summer drink ideas, you can beat the heat and enjoy something delicious all at the same time.

If you're having guests over these are the PERFECT drinks to cool down and really enjoy summer!

Sarasota Lemonade
2 bottles Moscato
1 pink lemonade concentrate
3 cups Sprite
1/2 cup fresh raspberries

Pour all of the liquid ingredients into a big pitcher and stir them up. Then, mash up some raspberries and add in for an extra pop of flavor. Refrigerate until it's chilled and then serve.

Mango-Strawberry Smoothie
1 cup fresh or frozen unsweetened strawberries
1 cup mango or apricot nectar (chilled)
1/2 cup plain or vanilla yogurt
4 ice cubes

The best part about this recipe is how EASY it is. In a blender combine the strawberries, mango or apricot nectar, yogurt and ice and blend until it's smooth. This makes about 2 servings, so grab a friend and enjoy.
