Beat the heat!4 Tuesday, July 19, 2011
When the temperature heats up, it's time to start looking for ways to cool down. For me, there's nothing better than an ice cold beverage with beads of condensation dripping down the side. A glass of ice water does the trick, but I like to do something special when I have the ladies over.. Let me share with you some easy ways to make hydration more alluring!

● Add slices of cucumber to a pitcher of water or individual glasses. It's very refreshing and looks like fancy spa water!

● When filling your ice cube tray, drop blueberries, raspberries, grapes or mint in each slot for the prettiest ice cubes.

● Freeze your favorite kind of fruit spaced evenly on a rimmed baking sheet. When they're fully frozen, add them to a plastic bag and store in the freezer. They work like ice cubes, but will not water down your drink.

● I love a good Arnold Palmer. Pour half a glass of iced tea and fill the rest with lemonade. Yum!

● Use adorable and inexpensive mason jars as glasses for your cold beverages.
