When I was younger, my summer drink of choice was always beer.
Now, let’s remember our younger days. The beer was often cheap, and something light as you could get through more.
Things change, as you will see below.
Before we go on, though, if you are new to the Food Photo Challenge, check out this post, which explains everything. Also, the linkup for this month’s theme will stay live for about a week, so join in even if it’s later!
Simply put, though, each month there will be a theme (announced at the end of this post) and on the 28th of each month, come back and link up.
So we keep moving forward with these food photos and it will be fun to see what kind of things happen with this theme.
Let’s check out this month.
Theme: Summer drink
There are so many items you can choose from. It could be a cool, refreshing iced tea. It could be flavored (or regular water). It could be a lot of things.
I love water and drink a lot of it.
But when things call for a true summer drink, I don’t mind something with a bit extra in it.
As I noted earlier a cold, light beer used to be my choice, especially after a softball game. As I aged, though, I tend to enjoy better beer — and a lot of them don’t really work as a “refreshing” summer drink. For example, I love Guinness. And though I can drink it quicker if “needed,” it’s really a waste. So beers like that just don’t count here.
When it comes to liquor, my tastes are a bit more tight in that I don’t like a lot of things. I like rum. I like vodka. And I like fruity drinks as they are refreshing and smooth.
Enter the Blue Hawaii.
This is a drink I had for the first time a bit more than a year ago on a trip to Canada. Earlier this year I got everything I needed to make them and I’ve enjoyed the process. Every once in a while, I need a refreshing drink.
This one does it.
There’s rum, vodka, and blue curacao in it. The fruity aspect is pineapple juice and some sour mix. Shake it up, put over crushed ice and away you go.
I tried to add a bit more to this photo and drink with the fruit. When I got done with my photos, the drink was definitely refreshing!
That’s my submission for the month and I am looking forward to seeing who else is taking part in this challenge and what they have to offer!
