It was such a nice and hot summer over here in the UK and pretty much all over Europe from what I gather and in the US too. I’m sure you have been feeling the same but a good refreshing drink it’s always welcome, with or without ice .
Definitely a cold drink ( alcohol free) can come in handy and quite heavenly on a super hot day if you’re still experiencing hot weather. Over here it has cooled off a little but it is still very pleasant with temperatures above average.
Drinks like this summer cocktail provides good, nutrition, it is refreshing and so rewarding especially served over ice on super hot weather. This fruit punch makes no exception.
I did name this a summer cocktail but in reality we make it quite often and just choose whether we want it with or without ice. Kids particularly love fishing out the fruits. We use different fruits almost every time we make this and alternate between berries ( any type of berry), grapes, melon, water melon, figs, you name it!
A good refreshing vitamin punch like this is always great and adding some frozen cherries or grapes to it will make it cooler and undiluted as opposed to adding ice.
All that’s needed it’s a few ingredients mainly fruits and it’s good to go in just a few minutes. The most time consuming task in here is juicing the oranges.
