Peanut butter and jelly, strawberries and chocolate, summer and cool drinks – some things just go together. When the temperatures rise there’s nothing better than an ice cold beverage which is why this month’s Best of the Blogs is showcasing some of this season’s tastiest sippers.
This Loaded Hibiscus Arnold Palmers from Vegetarian Ventures is an easy way to use up extra fruits and herbs you have around. Although the original only has blueberries, the sweet sipper can be customized with any fruity flavors to switch up the taste.
What’s your favorite cool summer drink? If you’re still looking for more refreshing sippers, take a look at our Tasty Seasonal Drinks Pinterest board. I promise you won’t be disappointed!

Hi everyone, I’m Jennifer Chong a photographer and designer living in Long Beach, California. I also write a lifestyle blog, where I share my favorite eats, travel spots and design loves. I am so excited to be guest blogging and pinning for BHG’s Delish Dish this month! Be sure to follow my boards to see the latest!
Today I am sharing with you all a refreshing summertime drink, Carrot Lemonade. So I bet some of you are thinking carrot and lemonade – what a weird combo! I thought so too, but I’m a fan of carrots and figured if it was too carroty I probably wouldn’t mind much.
So what did I think? Refreshing and the flavors of the carrot aren’t overpowering. It’s easy to make and you don’t need a juicer; just simmer the carrots for 10 mins and then blend. I think next time I will add a bit of ginger zest in there, too. One of the best parts of this juice is that unlike most lemonades, you don’t need to add any sugar. You can even make it ahead of time, though I would suggest that you don’t add all the water until you are ready to serve as the carrot tends to thicken once cooled.
