4. Refreshing Spring Drinks

Rainbow Smoothie

I don’t usually make carefully layered smoothies, like this one, on daily basis. (Not even on weekly, or monthly basis, to be honest!)

It’s reserved for special occasions only, and I think welcoming spring is totally considered that special occasions. Wouldn’t you agree?

Strawberry Mojito

A big batch of refreshing mojito full of summer taste!! Yes, yes, please!! Insanely refreshing and delicious!

Moscato Sangria

Another delicious batch drink you could make for Easter brunch is this fancy-looking sangria!

It takes bare minutes to make it, impressive and oh-so-delicious! Just imagine having a bowl full of boozy fruits at the end.

Pineapple Coconut Spritzer

If you’re in the mood for some tropical flavors, this one is for you! It’s as refreshing as it sounds!
