 Strawberry Margaritas

Ok so is it hot enough for you?  In my area we are getting between 96 to 107 degrees.  I am inland and not that close to a beach. Boy do I miss having the Boardwalk at my backdoor, back home.
We use to have one of those backyard pools you get at Costco, but it takes a lot to keep that up. So how have I been keeping cool in these hot days of summer you ask?

Smoothies and lots of healthy drinks. Ok on a Friday some are alcoholic, a girls got to relax sometimes right, lol.

Here are some of my favorites recipes:

Blackberry Juice Drink
Fresh blackberries ( preferably organic)
Simple syrup (sugar water) or agave sweeter
Apple juice
1/2 Teaspoon Ginger

I like the kick

Strawberry Delight ( Son's best friend creation)
 1 cup Fresh strawberries ( these are the ones I grew) Freeze
Apple Juice
2 tablespoon of lemonade drink powder

Lean Green Machine 

 1/2 quart Pineapple juice 
 half bag of spinach
