Summer time is the time of year where we get creative with our beverages.  The colder, the fruitier, the better.  Here are some fantastic summer time beverages that are also non alcoholic so you can serve them at your wedding without any hesitation of children drinking from the wrong station or someone having too many and driving.  Thanks to Delish.com for these great recipes. ENJOY!!

Iced Fruit Punch

Freeze fruit juices in ice-tray molds in festive shapes. As the juice cubes melt, their flavors mingle to form a refreshing drink. Choose juices in a range of colors and flavors. Our favorites include orange, pineapple, grape, cranberry, and lemon.

Hawaiian Smoothie

For the best taste and color, use a red-fleshed Hawaiian papaya for this exotic, lip-puckering taste of island summer. Papayas are loaded with papain, a digestive enzyme, so this smoothie is a good dessert to settle stomachs after a substantial meal.
