Summer Summer Summertime. It’s almost here!
When it comes to summer, all I can think about is good food, good friends, and good fun. I’m thinking about sitting by the pool with a delicious drink in my hand and music playing in the background.
If you watch my Insta stories, then you know what kind of music I’m talking about. That means you have also seen my horrific dancing and I’m sorry about that, but that’s what 90’s music does to me and I can’t, won’t, and don’t want to stop.
Speaking of 90’s music- should we talk about the 90’s cover band concert that I went to a few Saturday nights ago? AKA the best night of my life. I mean seriously, that day started off kinda not so great until I saw one of my friends who said, “Hey, we’re going out tonight to some 90’s thing. Do you want to come?” YUP, you bet I did. That night, we walked into the venue with the band dressed up in their neon clothes and crop tops. They covered all the 90’s hit songs. Then they stopped for a short break, and in true 90’s form, one guy passed his bandmate a Zima®. It was like taking a step back in time, and I never wanted to come back.
If you’re not familiar with Zima®,it was the alcoholic drink of choice of the 90’s. It’s light, refreshing, and seen as an alternative to beer, more like a wine cooler. A lot of people loved it and were upset when it was discontinued, but I have some awesome news for you guys because- IT’S BACK!
Yes, this delicious bubbly drink is back, but only for a short time, which means you better prep yourself for Z2K because the end is near! Get in all the Zima® goodness any way while you still can. The fun thing about Zima® is that it’s clear, so it’s perfect for mixing into cocktails, or even just drinking on its own.
In honor of summer coming up and Zima® back in stores, I came up with this super easy frozen peach and mint cocktail. It’s the perfect drink to have in your hand in that summer dream I mentioned above, takes only a couple of ingredients, and is ready in seconds with the help of your blender.
The sweet citrus flavor of Zima® blended with the classic flavor combination of peach and mint will be sure to keep you cool all summer long. So grab your girlfriends, break out the blender- and maybe some 90’s music- and get to it because I’m telling you this drink is allllllll that.
