Summer is officially over now, but judging by the San Diego weather only, one would never know! The soccer field this weekend was blazing hot, but I had something to put a little smile on the faces of some of my favorite soccer parents. I wanted this post to feature them – those parents who spend countless hours a weekly driving to and fro to practices and games. I filled the cooler and got to watch the faces of all of the folks who enjoyed the nice treat in this crazy heat, but I have to be honest; my mind started ticking as to what I would concoct when I got home. If I was going to crack open a can, I wanted to make an event of it. And so I did….
To my son, it was a no-brainer. He broke out the vanilla ice cream and created a Rootbeer Float – always a fun experience! So is drinking one! My in-laws swear by adding mint chip ice-cream, and all I could say is, “Different strokes….”.
Now this one was really crisp and tasty for me and my husband. I added vodka to the Pomegranate flavor and a little lime. It was the perfect Happy Hour drink after a long day at the soccer field!
My girl and her friend created Orange Juice Spritzers. I added Key Lime flavored Hansen’s (about 30% of the glass) to some fresh orange juice, added some ice, and it was super refreshing, with a perfect bite.
I have fun making creative treats and desserts in the kitchen, and with Hansen’s variety of flavors, there are planty of ideas that have not even yet crossed my mind. How about you? What would you make?
