Temperatures are hitting over 100 degrees and if you are hosting a summer party, your guests will be running to your bar area of your party space to get a refreshing drink to cool down with. Why not show off a little and wow your guests with a few unique ways to present your selected beverages at the party? Try out these cool ideas.

Popsicles for Those of Legal Drinking Age

Boozy popsicles are the on trend party staple of the year. Our editor extraordinaire, Melissa Klein, recently whipped up her own alcohol-infused frozen cocktail that were a hit at her summer party.


Using popsicle molds with season fruits like muddled blueberries and watermelon, these popsicles sounds amazing and left us wondering why she didn't bring some in for us!

Fruit Garnishes for a Little Eye Candy

Whether you’re shaking up a frozen drink or a simple cocktail, try garnishing your drink with real pieces of fruit for a visual marriage of color and natural elements.


This watermelon frosty drink from Lunchboxbunch.com has a slice of delicious-looking watermelon that makes our mouths water at the sight of it.

Pretty Floral Ice Cubes

What a lovely and whimsical idea! Blogger Joanna Goddard froze fresh flowers in ice cubes to serve in h20 drinks. 


This truly is a creative to jazz up even a simple glass of water. We love it!

An Alcohol Free Lemonade Bar

At many summer parties, the non-alcoholic drinkers tend to be a last thought to some party hosts. Wedding planner Lucy Dylan shared this idea from an outdoor wedding reception that featured a lemonade bar that also included non-alcoholic sangria and flavored waters. 


This tablespread of delicious drinks for people of all ages and drink preferences can give your party spread a refreshing look that’ll make you want to grab a cup and enjoy one of these yummy refreshments. 

This summer entertaining season, skip the typical tumbler glasses and bottles of beer and opt for a special way to serve drinks to your guests.
