PINK DRINKS and more.....


Pink Lemonade Ice Cream Soda





aren't these self-labeled bottles pretty?
fill with lemonade
 (I use Minute Maid LIGHT, only 5 calories)
& add a drop of food coloring to make these lovely pastels.

this link will take you to printable labels for the bottles...HERE  
there are a few different styles and all are adorable.


 White Sangria with Melons




  

½ cup sugar 
3-5 tablespoons brandy 
1 (750-milliliter) bottle white wine, chilled 
Melon  (watermelon, cantaloupe & honeydew), cubed
Grapes, halved
1 (1-liter) bottle club soda


1. In a large pitcher, stir sugar and brandy until paste-like mixture. 
2. Add wine and fruit. 
3. Refrigerate to keep chilled until ready to serve.
4. Pour into punch bowl and add club soda.

What charming bottles - and I of course love ice cream soda!! I had the most delicious sangria the other night at my blogging friend Liz's store opening. This one looks wonderful as well - such a lovely summer treat!!

Marsha, that pink lemonade sounds great. Remember the Pink Gin Fizz from 1950's or the famous Pink Ladies? yvonne

Oh how I love pink lemonade, and ice cream soda. Can't say I ever thought of combining them like that, but I will have to try that.

P.S. Thank you so much for the sweet, and thoughtful comment. It meant a lot.
