Who wants some citrus flavor?! It is finally getting hot here, and as much as I disliked the Polar Vortex I really am not a fan of sweating just for breathing. So that means lots of poolside or porch sitting and drinking cold beverages. I don’t drink during the week, really my body can only take one day on the weekends, and this citrus cocktail was on the menu. Yes, I’m old. It just so happens that I had all the ingredients on hand aside from the grenadine.
Directions: Do we really need any here? Mix it all up and toss the garnish in or on a fancy stick. Stir and enjoy! Poolside is best but it’s not required.
Can you just picture the palm trees now! 😉
What is your favorite beach day drink? Alcoholic or Non-alcoholic.
haha I love the “directions” do you really need any!! Too funny! This looks delicious and yes I can see myself poolside in a very exotic location!! Happy Tuesday!! xo
Haha! I mean pour and stir! Can’t be easier! Happy Tuesday!

ooo i need this! thanks for the recommendation/recipe. i love sangria! my fav go-to summer drink
I love a good sangria too!
oh man, vodka and i are NOT friends. however there is rum in this as well, which is my drink of choice, so maybe i’ll let it slide… wishing i was on a beach with a rum punch in hand right now!!
Just double up on the Rum, and leave Vodka on the shelf! 😉

My MOUTH IS WATERING!! this looks SO good! my favorite is pina coladas but I just may convert after trying this!
Thank you. Ohh I haven’t had a Pina Colada in awhile but I do like them.
This looks delightful. When I finally make it to Boston, will you make me one? 😉 I might even entice you to drink two since I’m a rebel like that.
Of course I will! Two might be pushing it!! Haha! I’d break my old lady rules if you visit!

I really like Twisted Tea half lemonade half tea
I load up my tall glass with ice and add some
Of my own brewed green tea. Very refreshing.
Have a wonderful day!
Love SMD’s Momma
That sounds really good!! Those twisted teas pack a punch too!
at first i thought this was gonna be able infusing water, but then i saw the alcohol, and i was all in. i’d change mine to rum since vodka gives me headaches!
It is a mix of rum and vodka but you can easily substitute the Vodka for extra rum! 😉
That looks like the perfect summer cocktail! I’ve still yet to try the strawberry rum but sounds so good!
Oh you need to go get some!! It perfect even if just with sprite but can be mixed with so much.
Mmm this tropical drink sounds so yummy! I wish I could drink on the beach but it’s illegal here…whomp whomp.
That really stinks but it really can be enjoy at home too! 😉
yum this sounds like a perfect drink for a warm (or hot!) summer day.
Really any day of the week! 😉
Is it too early to drink that right now?
It’s 5 o’clock somewhere!!

I’m trying to figure out what my favorite summer drink is. I don’t have one. I do like a good sweet tea vodka or Malibu and pineapple juice or some beer but it’s time to branch out.
I like to mix it up too but fruity always wins! They have a Malibu Melon that this would be good with too!
Kateri Von Steal says
Ok, make me one.. I’ll be right over.
Haha!! Bar keep I’ll have another! 😉
Kelly (@KRod0519) says
This sounds delicious! Definitely will try. Thanks for a great idea! 🙂 Cheers!
Thank you. You’ll have to let me know how you like it! 😉
SMD @ Life According to Steph says
That looks very refreshing!
It was very light, you don’t taste the booze too much even with both the Rum and the Vodka. Win!
Jessica Gardner says
why did I say I was done drinking until the 4th?? This sounds so good!!!
Wait, what?! Yeah that would be a tough one! 😉
Haha, nice “directions”! Cheers!
Haha! I figured it was pretty self-explanatory. 😉
Woo yummy!! Perfect summer drank! 😉
Thank you. Hope you try it!
Oh no way, this looks amazing!! I am definitely pinning this 🙂
Thank you. Hope you like it! It is light and refreshing without being too strong.
This looks like heaven in my mouth! Definitely keeping this one in my back pocket for my next beach trip
Hope you like it, the mix is not to sweet but hits the spot!
There is a very very large chance that I will be sitting in my yard sipping on this this weekend.
Woohoo! It is really good, not to strong and not too sweet.
Ashley L. says
I love this!! Just what I was looking for! I have been in search of a new cocktail to try and this will be it!
Thanks for sharing!
You are very welcome. Hope you like it! It is perfectly sweet without being overwhelming!
this was my drink of choice in college! Love pineapple and coconut rum
Pineapple and Coconut is such a great combination!
Lady Lilith says
Forget the pool. Bring this to a BBQ 🙂
Haha! Right?! Booze is always welcome at a BBQ!
Holy yum. I think I need this, now!
I am like you, I can really only handle one day of adult beverages per week!
I am so with you on that, I might just have one too!!
Amanda Elizabeth says
After this day I had that looks so amazing!!
Oh no, sorry you had a rough day! Hopefully you get to relax tonight.
I love this! It sounds so good! Fruity drinks are definitely my favorite during the summer.
Thank you. Fruity drinks that go down smoothly is always so nice especially on a summer night.
This right here is my kind of drink! I bet it’d taste good frozen, too!
Oh frozen would be really good!!! I’ll have to try that version!! You’re wicked smart, love!!
That sounds like my kind of beverage! Now I just need to find someone who will let me drink next to their pool.
You can just pool crash someone! Bring the drinks and they won’t mind! 😉
Great summer drink recipe!
Thank you. It will be enjoyed to the fullest! 😉
Brianne Bracco says
Oh my goodness….this looks soooo delicious and refreshing!! Makes me wish I was home right now to make one…even though it is only 10:30 AM here right now hahahaha!
Haha! That is awesome! Day drinking needs to be implemented in the US.
ummm. I can’t make this unless I have specific directions. rude;) we will make these when i am up in August. Which is too long to wait to see you! Damnit
August??? Nooooo. I thought you were coming up in June. That is way to long! Wahhhh!
Kelly Louise says
scrumptious! i’m pinning this!
Thank you. Hope you like it!
Um, yum! I love citrus-y, refreshing drinks!
It really hit the spot. Hope you give it a try.
This sounds delicious!!! You can add it to the cookout menu you are hosting for us. Haha! Just kidding – I said I would bring the sangria!! 🙂
Haha! That is true! I’ll cook you bring beverages. 😉
Mmmm this sounds real good. I love fruity drinks! Right now I’m into mojitos. I love the hint of mint!
Mojitos are so good! I think you would like this then. It isn’t over the top or too sweet.
