The other day when the sun was shining, surprisingly, I wandered downtown and went to one of the local coffee shops. I hate coffee, but I do like Italian sodas. They had one there called the "Mellonade". Yum yum, one sip and I was hooked. What I wasn't thrilled about was the cost; $1.75 doesn't seem like much but I was so filled with desire that I felt as though I could drink one mellonade every hour for the rest of the summer. For someone who doesn't have a job that $1.75 could add up. So instead I ordered the ingredients online from this website, for only $4.99!!!
To make a Mellonade add:
1 can of unflavored polar sparkling water (blue can)
1 spoonful of Torani Lemon
1 1/2 spoonful of Torani Orange
1 1/2 spoonful of Torani Mellon
3 cubes of Ice
And Voila! A delish sparkling summer drink.Charles and I enjoy this drink on the balcony while eating diner on a regular basis. I think it had been a rough day in the clinic for me judging by the looks of me in this picture. The mellonade might be the only thing that keeps me holding on.
Charlie can be so ridiculous sometimes. But I still like him.
Do any of you have any favorite summer drinks?
Enjoy the heat!
