A tall glass of sunshine

I’ve never been much of a juice or slushie person — I prefer to get my calories from something I can chew, rather than drink — but this booze-free strawberry-watermelon daiquiri might bring me around. It’s from the Summer ’14 issue of Kraft’s What’s Cooking magazine, which arrived in the mail this week.

The recipes I’ve tried from past issues have all been really good and (bonus!) we often have many of the ingredients already in the house. I was able to use up some boxes of Jello for the rainbow layer cake from the Spring ’14 issue, which I made not once but twice in one week. (It was that good!)  And I’ve ear-marked the pages of several issues to try more recipes in the future, like these strawberry-lemon cheesecakes in a jar made for Kraft by La cuisine d’Hélène. (Everything she makes is gold!)

Oh, but we were talking about drinks.

This one got me through a warm afternoon earlier this week when I was cooped up at home with a sick little boy. I could only pop outside for a minute to snap a quick pic, and when I came back inside the drink was like a tall glass of sunshine.



My brother-in-law makes a similar drink that he bumps up with lime. I bet some muddled mint leaves would also work well.

What are some of your favourite summer drinks?

    Thanks so much for the mention, I appreciate. In the summer I like drinks with fresh fruits in it. I can’t wait to try this one!
