Fill Your Beverage Dispensers With These Delicious Summer Drinks

Summer time means enjoying drinks that are refreshing and light, as opposed to the heavier liquors of the winter. And when it comes to summer beverages, the best are the ones that are fruity and fun. For a really sweet drink that your guests will absolutely love, try a watermelon and cranberry mix that will complement  the rest of your summer fun party.

All you need for the following recipe is a bottle of Midori melon liquor, a bottle of watermelon Schnapps, and a bottle of cranberry juice. Mix the drinks in a beverage dispenser with 1 parts Midori, 1 part watermelon Schnapps, and 2 parts cranberry juice. It’s as simple as that! You can garnish with a piece of watermelon.

If you still have more of that Midori on hand, you can also make a Coast Colada. All you need (per serving) is:

  • 3/4 oz of Midori
  • 1 oz Bacardi white rum
  • 3 oz Pina Colada mix
  • 1/3 fresh banana
  • 1 1/2 scoops of crushed ice
Blend all of these ingredients and then serve in hurricane glasses for the best taste.
With either of these delicious recipes, you can fill your beverage dispensers, set them out on the backyard, and let everyone enjoy some great drinks in the warm weather.


Beverage Dispensers and More for Throwing the Perfect Pool Party

Summertime is the best time of year to get a bunch of people together and really enjoy the outdoors. It’s a great time to invite everyone over to enjoy the pool in the backyard! Hopefully by now it’s uncovered, cleaned, and refilled with clean water for everyone to enjoy. And when it comes to throwing a pool party, you need the perfect pieces.

First, you need beverage dispensers and glasses that are going to hold up to all the running around. Plastic is usually the best choice for these kinds of days, in case you have young ones running around who are prone to knocking things over! Lemonade can be replaced, but broken glass can be a danger, so keep things safe and simple with plastic.

But what’s a pool party without a great summer treat? Cupcake stands are needed so you can serve all your best baked cupcakes, vanilla, chocolate, and special flavors too.  It’s the perfect light and fluffy snack that is fun to eat poolside.

No matter what you choose to serve during your pool party, the best thing you can do is keep organized with a few different supplies and you’ll be the best host or hostess of the summer!

Summertime is picnic time and many people live close enough to a park where they can have one. Whether it’s family, friends, or a romantic mid-day date, throwing a blanket over the grass and enjoying some good food and drinks is a fun way to enjoy the fresh air. And making your own lemonade or iced tea and bringing it to the park is much better than buying something at the store. but you need to have the right drink dispensers that are easy to travel with.

Metal drink dispensers are some of the easiest to carry and you don’t have to worry about anything breaking or spilling. These great floral metal dispensers pictured are whimsical and fun, perfect for a summer day. And with the carrying handle, it’s easy to bring with you and back home.

Of course with those dispensers you also need glasses. It’s easiest to bring plastic cups that can be easily disposed and are safe for everyone! It’s also less to carry back home afterwards. Serve your home made lemonade and have everyone else in the park  be jealous you have such a great picnic spread.
