Happy Peach Month Fabshionistas! August is peach month and what better way to celebrate than with something that’s refreshing and boozy all-in-one. If you haven’t ever had one of these boozy concoctions you’re in for a treat. A few months ago I went on a trip to New York and on my first night there we went to a rooftop bar that had yummy boozy popsicle cocktails. I grabbed my inspiration from that and decided to make my own! I present you the Peach Mimosa Popsicle Cocktail.

While the times may have changed, this is ONE summer tradition we refuse to let go. S’mores are simply delish and they represent everything that’s awesome about summer. Flashbacks of your first summer-love, recollections of cozy beach bonfires with your besties, and memories of that one time at band-camp ALL come flooding in when you bite into these crunchy, gooey treats.

Sangria days make the smiles stay. It’s the one drink that everyone can agree on. Just the word sangria excites us, evoking nostalgic memories of friendly get-togethers and future summer brunches to come. Can’t wait!

The 4th of July is almost here, which means a day of fun, fireworks, and lots of sun. While the barbecue is going and the heat is rising, you’re going to want to reach for something to cool you down. Enter these sweet treats. Inspired by the classic “rocket popsicle” this yummy frozen pop is jam-packed with healthy superfoods.

Tequila

My younger sister recently became engaged and to celebrate she hosted an outdoor party with our family and her new in-laws. It was a perfectly warm day for an outdoor event and to top if off, her in-laws had the most delicious cocktails ready to go. After taking a big sip, I immediately asked her fiance what was in them and was pleasantly surprised to hear they used tequila since it’s not usually my libation of choice…especially on hot Summer days! I was amazed how the flavor was so refreshing and light that I couldn’t get enough. It was similar to a Paloma but with a fruity/spicy twist! In honor of National Tequila Month, I thought it would be fun to share this recipe with our readers so that you can recreate it for your gatherings this Summer. Enjoy!

While you’re having fun in the sun, be sure to remember that staying hydrated is important for looking and feeling great all summer long. Water keeps your skin looking great while helping your body to naturally detoxify. If you’re tired of plain water on its own, try out a delicious infused water recipe instead. Infused water, sometimes called spa water or detox water, is a simple and delicious way to quench your thirst naturally — without any added sugar or artificial flavors. Below, three easy ways to DIY your own infused water. All you need is a mason jar!
