Spring beverages for patio season

Refreshing ways to cool down

From SheKnows Canada
Patio season is fast approaching, and that means it's time for you to enjoy the warm weather with a nice, refreshing beverage in your hand. Looking for some inspiration? We share some great drink options that are sure to have you rushing for a glass and the nearest patio chair.

Homemade sangria

Get the weekend started

There's nothing quite like the first morning when you can walk straight from bed out to the porch and not feel even the tiniest bit of a chill. Those special mornings call for a special beverage to celebrate. For a comforting and enjoyable way to welcome the warm weather, make yourself a delicious iced coffee. Or if you're in a bit more of a fruity mood, a mimosa is sure to hit the spot.

Serve up the sangria

Nothing announces the arrival of summer quite like a pitcher of sangria on the patio. There are so many different versions out there, you are sure to find a recipe that suits your taste. Sangria is such a fun, fruity drink, so play around with the ingredients: Experiment with different wines, juices and fruits until you find the combination that tastes just right.

Drinks for everyone

Alcoholic beverages are a great way to relax and unwind with family and friends, but you want to be sure everyone enjoys the warm weather with a refreshing beverage in hand, so don't forget to have some non-alcoholic options around. Homemade lemonade is always a crowd-pleaser, and you can dress it up with other fruit juices and herbs to give it some extra personality. Or whip up a pitcher of iced tea in whichever flavour you and your guests prefer.

To end off the night

After a long day at work or a busy weekend, you deserve a sweet treat while you take in the cool breeze and the sight of the stars. Finish your evening off right with a creamy Baileys grasshopper. The creme de menthe will refresh you while the sweetness of the Baileys will warm your tummy and calm your busy thoughts.
