Fresh and Fruity Summer Drinks

I don't want you to get the idea I'm a big drinker at all but I occasionally do like a glass of white wine or a "girly" drink as my husband calls them.    I only like the fruity drinks, you know the ones that might have a slice of fruit or little umbrella attached.

During one of our last visits with my son and DIL she made me a drink she called "Hey Girlfriend" and it was so good.   I don't like to taste the alcohol at all, just the sweetness.    With summer upon us and July 4th coming up, I thought I'd share a couple of my favorite drinks with you all.

  • 1 shot Malibu Coconut Rum
  •  1 glass ginger ale
  • 2 freshly squeezed limes (or more if desired)
 That's it....so easy and soooo good!

 Here's another recipe I found on a site I follow on Facebook

  • 1 can pineapple juice (46 oz)
  • 2 cups Country Time lemonade mix
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cans Sprite
  • 1 bottle of Pineapple Coconut Rum

Obviously, this makes more than one drink!

Another good fruity drink is an Amaretto Sour.  My sister and I always order one whenever we're out with our Misters.


Classic Amaretto Sour Recipe 

This delightful combination is among the easiest drinks to make.


  • 1 1/2 ounces amaretto liqueur
  • 3 ounces sweet and sour mix
  • Splash of lemon-lime soda, such as 7 Up or Sprite
  • Maraschino cherries


  1. Combine and shake the liqueur and mix in a cocktail shaker.
Pour the contents into a glass and add crushed ice and as many cherries as desired.

Like I said before, I'm not a big drinker at all, but whenever I do order something one of these would be on my list.   In fact, there's a bottle of white wine in my refrigerator now that's been in there over a year!
