Mixed berry Sweet and sour drink

Mixed berry sweet and sour drink from eatgood4life.com
Summer it’s just around the corner and with that comes refreshing drinks. I am not much of a drinker except socially and when given the opportunity. This sweet and sour drink is the bomb. Sweet none the less, but good.

Of course I will opt for something sweet, that is what my palate likes!! Many of my friends think I am weird or something because none of them like sweet drinks….well I do.

I have seen many posts about watermelon and mint mojitos lately. My home garden is pretty much a mint jungle, and since we get watermelon when ever we get to the market, since it is in season, I think my next drink would just be that.

Watermelon and mint mojitos….yum….I am really excited about it, I just love watermelon so stay tuned.

Anyhow, today is your lucky day because today I have decided to have my first give away, yeap you heard me right, my first giveaway.

I am giving away a SINGED copy of Ina Garten’s latest cookbook. I am pretty much just going to keep it simple and straight forward and if I like how it goes, since I like giving stuff away, maybe I will do another one soon!!

So go on now and comment underneath.

Enjoy the drink!!

Cheers!

  1. I know it’s pretty plain and simple but my favorite drink in the summer is just good old iced tea with some lemon slices…unsweetened and lots of ice. :)

    (ps..I’m going to keep an eye out for the watermelon mint mojitos! I have an orange mint plant that I’m dying to make some sort of drink with besides in my iced tea)

  2. My favorite drink for the summer is COLD lemonade :)

  3. My new jam for the summer is blueberry lime iced tea! From scratch of course ;)

  5. i love Yoo-Hoo in the summer.

  6. i subscribe to RSS in google reader (onitnaram at gmail)

  7. I never make drinks. Except hot chocolate! That’s more of a winter thing though. So I’ll go with lemonade. I love it but it’s just so full of sugar. :(

  8. I already follow you on Facebook!

  9. And on Google Reader. :)

  10. I make iced tea the way Ina Garten does actually! I steep 2 flavors of Celestial Seasonings teas. I may use a red zinger and a berry flavor. Then for sweetening I add apple juice. It is so refreshing and I prefer to use juice as a sweetener instead of white sugar.

  11. Mix of Green Tea & Raspberry Zinger … lots of ice, fresh mint, and lemon slice.

  12. My favorite summer drink is a Miami Vice. It’s half pina colada and half strawberry daiquiri. 100% delicious!

  13. I liked you on Facebook.

  14. I’m already subscribed to the RSS feed.

  15. My favorite drink for summer is Pinot Grigio – light fruity, tasty.

  16. i am an email subscriber.

  17. i liked Eat Good 4 Life on facebook

  18. Normally I would say mojitos but since I’m pregnant this summer it’s just ice water with a lemon.

  19. My go to refreshing alcohol drink is a lite Gin and Tonic. Old fashioned, I know but watching my very curvy figure is an every bite/sip thing! One fresh lime juiced into the glass, crushed ice, a scant shot of Amsterdam Gin, and 8 oz. or so of Diet Schwepps tonic water. I am smitten with your smoothie recipes, I pinned the 2 green ones I found. I plan to try this Mixed Berry Sweet and Sour drink too.

  20. I love iced tea! :)

  28. Liked on facebook!

  29. I like iced coffee with lots of milk, sugar, and hershey’s chocolate syrup. Serve over crushed ice, or blend it, and it’s like a smoothie.

  30. My favorite summer drink is a Grape Martini on ice…

    1 oz Ciroc Vodka
    2 ozs White Grape Juice
    Frozen graps for garnish if you like

    Truth be told, I usually double this recipe and make sure there’s plenty of ice! :)

  31. I also just “liked” you on Facebook :)

  32. My favorites are iced sun tea and a drink my husband concocts with Rose’s mango mix, lemonade and 7up.

  33. Hi my name is Pam and I just came across your site by chance several weeks ago. I am so glad I did. You have such original ideas. Thanks!

  34. What could possibly beat sun tea (maybe spiced with something or other). Ina Garten is a genius in the kitchen!

  35. Fresh squeezed lemonade, but I never make it. I’m drinking distilled water. Boring but healthy.

  36. I love mojitos! And sangria

  37. I’m subscribed via RSS :)

  38. Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka is my favorite summer time drink!

  39. This looks delicious… sucha pretty summer drink.
    i actually have that book of Ina’s, signed! I went to her book signing in NYC 2 years ago.

  40. Homemade lemonade.

  41. I don’t drink often but when I do, I like frozen mudslides anytime of the year…I have made them a few times…

  42. i like this!

  43. I love Ice water with lemon :) I like you on Facebook.

  44. I LOVE a good strawberry daiquiri or margarita in the summer. For the non-alcoholic troop, I like strawberry-banana smoothies, or just some good old flavored iced tea or lemonades! For my favorite smoothie, I use strawberries (either frozen or fresh), and Vanana yogurt from Trader Joe’s.

  45. Looks yummy but can you use something else insted of wine?

    • How about a sprite type of drink without high fructose corn syrup? Some sort of a healthier version of it. I know Trader Joes and whole foods carry some. Let me know if you find a better substitute. Thanks for stopping by.
