My mom and I always say there’s a single moment in which you know it’s the holidays, and there’s one for summer too!

It’s always before summer, of course, and is usually on a gorgeous May day. Maybe it’s your first day wearing sandals with a dress, or a shorter dress instead of a maxi. Maybe it’s a day with shorts and the windows down. It could be a Memorial Day party or the first crack of the baseball bat at the field across your house. Whatever it is, I LOVE it. I’m a July baby, and I became a mom in July, so I’m all about all things summer. I don’t even mind humidity if it means longer days of sun and fun.

In the summer, we are all about celebrating and entertaining.

7up

About once or twice a week, we go to Walmart to shop for warm weather meals and party supplies. You’d be amazed at what you can do with anything strawberry, cake mix, and 7UP®. I’m excited to share my Strawberry Lemon Trifle recipe:

I’d love to hear how you celebrate summer! When we were kids, we had a large in-ground pool. My parents would have parties so big, that every square inch of lawn was covered by towels. There’d be people in the pool, people on the lawn, people on the front lawn playing games. My dad was a pioneer of the times and had large outdoor speakers so he could blast music to us. That’s why this giveaway is so awesome! You’d get a patio set, speakers, a grill, a cooler, and a gift card. And 25 winners will win gift cards to get some good stuff for summer! What would you get with your Walmart gift card?

Frozen Strawberry Lime Mojito Slushies

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of 7UP®. The opinions and text are all mine.

*Must be 21 years of age or older to drink alcohol. Please drink responsibly.

Looking for the perfect, refreshing, anytime-of-year party drink? This recipe calls for refreshing mint, sweet strawberries, tart lime, and 7UP. #7Waysto7UP

As far as parties go around here, I think we’re pretty top-notch! No party here is complete without party snacks, party laser lights, and party drinks. My husband makes top-notch drinks – with alcohol or without – and will wrap anything in bacon!

Let’s talk about drinks, though. We are mojito people around here. Cassidy likes mojitos with rum, and I don’t, but somehow we have a recipe that is so versatile that it can be enjoyed by everyone – regardless of having rum or not. One of the key ingredients is 7UP – and it’s the perfect way to share good times at parties, celebrations, events, or even just a night-in by mixing up our normal routine. Our frozen slushie drink can be enjoyed during the warm months that I love so much:

And during the cold winter months, when you need a drink that is both soothing and energizing all at once!

Snow day drink! What I love is that the mint is refreshing, the strawberries are sweet, the lime is tart, and the 7UP is the perfect, versatile complement to our mixed drinks. It provides more flavor and tastes sensational which makes this a wonderful anytime drink. Whether you use 7UP in a fun cocktail or mocktail, a fruity or citrus punch, or even in baking or marinade food recipes, I’ve found incredible uses for it in every form. What I LOVE is my creative mixed drink – Strawberry Mojito Slushies.

  3. 2 Tbsp sugar

  5. Lime wedges for garnish
  6. 4 cups ice
  7. 1 cup fresh strawberries
  8. 4 ounces rum of choice (1/2 cup) *Optional

Instructions

  • 1. Muddle the mint leaves, sugar, and juiced lime with a handful of ice

This perfect, refreshing mojito can be made as a mocktail or with rum - and is equally good each way. The fresh mint, sweet strawberries, and tart lime are soothing, while the 7UP provides a perfect lemon/lime twist.

Easy, right? I don’t know what it is about the drink, but the color, taste, and texture make me happy. I’m proud to serve this drink at any party or social gathering at my house, and also happy to bring the ingredients to a party elsewhere.

I first introduced this drink at a party over the holidays.

It was the first time in EIGHT years that we had made it to one of their “famous” parties. Maybe I should say infamous, because they generally end with my dad blasting AC/DC as loud as it can possibly get – until it doesn’t sound like music anymore – and then the generation above me (and below) rocks themselves to sleep. It rocks, so to speak, and I’m happy to say that after all this time, my parents still party like the best of them! After the party we went to a friend’s wedding in PA.

Back to the party, though! It was our first holiday party of quite a few this December and I was in charge of beverages. I LOVE being in charge of beverages. Then I can go and charm my parents and their friends with these beauties:

LOOK: a real snowflake landed on one!

I buy my 7UP right in my town at Stop & Shop. You can also get it at Giant Landover and Giant Carlisle.
