When the temperatures start rising into the 90s down here in Nashville, there is one thing that is a must – a fruity frozen beverage to beat the heat. Even if you’re sitting comfortably in the air conditioning, there is something so “vacation feeling” about sipping on a frozen concoction, right? I’m not sure why we leave frozen drinks to vacation time because they are truly so easy to make at home. As long as you have a blender and the ingredients, you’re good to go. So don’t wait around for the next vacay, y’all! MAKE THESE SUMMER DRINKS STAT! They’re so good!
