Summertime and fruity drinks go together like a dessert bar and a fat girl. James and I found the most delicious drink at Coldstone of all places and no, it doesn't have ice cream in it. Its a dreamy blend of orange juice, pineapple, lemon juice, sugar and ice. Blended together its the perfect way to relax by the pool with a good book. It's healthy and oh-so good.
