Yummy Summer Drinks {Sponsor Spotlight}

I really can't believe that July is almost over! I still have a few days left though so now is the time to brag about my fabulous July sponsors. I don't know about you guys, but I think I definitely consume more alcohol in the summer. For me, it comes with lazy lake days when I drink beer after beer and don't even think twice of the calories. No matter if you spend you summers on the water or not - we all love a good cocktail. I asked my July girls to tell me their favorite go-to summer drink.

My NEW favorite summer drink is Vodka and club with lemon and lime! YUM!!!! So light and surprisingly refreshing!

My favorite cocktail (no matter what the season) is the Colorado Bulldog.
Here is my recipe:
1 shot vodka
1 shot Kahlua® coffee liqueur
  milk or half & half (if you want a richer taste, go for the half & half or you can do 50/50 of the two or just milk for less fat)
1 splash Coca-Cola®
In a shaker mix Vodka, Kahlua. Pour into a glass filled 3/4ths full of ice and add milk to 3/4th full and then add a splash of Coca-Cola. Stir.

 Hi Pink Growl Readers! I'm Brie and I blog over at Recipe for a Beautiful Life. I'm just a normal career-minded, 20-something, Navy wife trying to juggle everything life throws my way.  I’m a total gym rat, wannabe fashionista, wino and food lover. I’m on a quest, not to be obsessive, but to be healthy and happy. I blog about my passion for fitness, my love for all things fashion and beauty, my obsession with sports, and life in general.

I love me a good cocktail, especially in the summer, when Maryland's hot, humid weather leaves me craving something cool and refreshing. Since I have been on a little health kick as of late (I've lost over 20 pounds in the last few months), I am all about the low cal options. Right now, my favorite is Coke Zero with vodka and a fresh lime wedge. It's simple, it's easy, and it's only about 65 calories a pop! Yes please! I hope you'll take a minute to stop by and check out my blog!

Hi! I'm Allyson, and I blog over at Cupcakes and Candy Canes.  I  love pretty much everything about summertime.  To me, there is  nothing better than laying on the beach with a icy Coca-Cola Classic.  This is sort of a cop-out as it's my favorite year-round drink, but I can definitely indulge a little more at the beach!

My favorite summer cocktail is a glass of cold white wine sangria! Nothing like yummy fruit and wine to toast those warm summer nights with!
My favorite summer drink is White Sangria. To make it I combine a bottle sparkling white wine like Vinho Verde, 1 sliced orange, 1 cup of sliced strawberries and 1 ½ cups of Sprite.  Let the sangria chill in the refrigerator overnight and enjoy – drink umbrella optional!
7. Suzanne at The Wineabe -
my fav this summer is a Pinot Grigio. Light, citrusy, chilled, and totally refreshing for a hot summer day {by the pool, or beach, or backyard...}

Hiiiii The Pink Growl readers! Some of you might already know me, but I’m Kelly & I have an OC Fashion & Lifestyle blog called Messy.Dirty.Hair.
BLOG // TWITTER // FACEBOOK My  Favorite Summer Drink would be The Starbucks Refresher Drinks!!! I know that its hard for a lot of us to break out of our normal starbucks drink but I highly recommend trying them. Not only do they have caffeine in them, but they're only 50-80 calories! They seriously are the best & they really do quench your thirst.

I'd have to say my favorite summer cocktail is a tie between a frozen
margarita & a daiquiri. There is nothing like sitting by the pool or laying on the beach 
with a cold drink in your hand. I live a couple hours away from the beach and 
there is this one mexican restaurant that I always stop in before hitting 
the sand. They have the best daiquiris and after just one, you're
good to go for hours if you catch my drift ;) 
And sometimes if you're a baller like me,
you have both :)
frozen deliciousness.

Oh girl! Out on the lake, it's like calories don't count, ever! Especially when it comes to alcohol. You can't be on the lake and NOT have a beer!
