10+ Cold Drink Recipes



A delicious and cool collection of Summer Drink Recipes perfect to try out on a hot, summer day, all of which are kid-friendly!

I spend most of the summer craving a cold drink. Do you do the same thing? Often times, I feel like I have no appetite and just want something cold to drink for a meal. That may sound weird, but it’s the truth (and can probably be contributed to the hot state I live in – Arizona!!)

Normally, water does the trick but almost always a nice cold Fresca or Cherry Limeade from Sonic is even better. There really is just something so YUMMY about a nice, cold drink and today I’m sharing with you some of my favorite drink recipes! Most can be made and enjoyed all year long, but some of these are delicious summer drink recipes as well. Several of these can be found here on the site, but the rest are from some of my friends in Blog Land. Hope you enjoy them as much as I know we will!

  1. Yum! I love cold drinks!!!! These all look fabulous! Thanks for including mine in your round up! 🙂

  2. Your timing is perfect … the temp is supposed to be 106 on Saturday! Thank you in advance 🙂

  3. These could definitely curb my thirst in this summer. It was 103 this afternoon here in Texas. Way too hot!! There are days that I will have a shake for dinner just because it is so hot and I don’t feel like eating. Thanks for the great round-up!!
