Summer Cocktails: For Kids & Grownups

Remember back when I rubbed it in shared with you that I was invited to the super chic Aquafina Flavor Splash party in Baltimore? One of the things they encouraged us to do was find ways to flavor our days.  And since crazyinsanemom is not a flavor… yet (I have a call into their development team) I had to search out other ways to take on the task.

Guess what I found one that’s both kid AND mom friendly. YIPPEE! The kiddos and I took some of the amazing berries we picked at the orchard this week, plopped them into ice cube trays, filled the trays with Aqufina Flavor Splash water  and stuck them in the freezer. Three hours later it was time for kiddie mocktails. They loved it and I got my picky eater to actually enjoy fruit. BONUS!

So I said to myself..

“Self, you know you could make some mommy cocktails too.”

Well DUH why didn’t I think of that?! Thus was born the “Flavor the end of Mom’s day” cocktail.

Okay so the photo isn’t mine but I thought tossing up a pic of the red solo cup was sort of too frat house. See I’d like to fool you into thinking I have more class than that. AS IF!

My lovely libation was composed of the same fruity ice cubes as above. I added some berry vodka, a splash of club soda and lemon flavored Flavor Splash. Honestly it’s my favorite of the flavors which really sort of shocked me because I’m not a big fan of lemon drinks. The great thing is it tastes more like lemonade and I’m all for that. The cocktail turned out more like berry lemonade with a kick but I consider that, once again a..BONUS!

  1. I love Peach Schnapps and think a little Peach Mango Flavor Splash would be a nice addition! Thanks!

  2. This sounds so yummy. I don’t think I would have thought of using Flavorsplash in cocktail. I will have to give your peach-mango challenge a whirl. I have something in mind, just have to experiment (about 3 or 4 times) to be sure it’ll fly.
