When it’s this hot out I like to cool off with fruity flavors that bring to mind afternoons relaxing on a tropical beach. These recipes are easy and delicious, with our without alcohol.

Blood Orange Spritz

Blood orange soda
Lime wedge
Gin or vodka (optional)

In a tall glass, combine ice cubes, orange soda, and a squeeze of lime, plus 1-2 shots alcohol (optional). Stir gently.

Peach Pleaser

4 – 6 oz peach soda, chilled
Canned pineapple slices in juice, chilled
Lime wedge
Gin or vodka (optional)

Cut one pineapple slice into 4 pieces and thread onto a toothpick. In a tall glass, combine ice cubes, peach soda, a splash of pineapple juice, and a squeeze of lime, plus 1-2 shots alcohol (optional). Stir gently then place the spent lime wedge and pineapple garnish on top.
