When summer temperatures soar, many people discontinue spa use and leave the hot tubbing strictly for the winter months. However, summer time is actually a fantastic season to kick back and relax in your spa and enjoy a frosty summer beverage. To begin, cool your spa water by simply reducing the temperature setting to 85F or less (or turn your heater completely off). Next, heighten the summer spa experience by inviting a few neighbours over to enjoy your ‘cool tub’ while sipping on deliciously cool summer beverages.
Here is a list our favourite summer beverages that are perfect for cooling off at a hot tub party:
1) The Ultimate Summer Sangria:
Strawberries, Sprite, and Red Wine. A decedent way to add some color to your beverage selection. Simply dice up some fresh strawberries, and add the remaining ingredients. For an extra tasty treat, add some peaches and pears if you’d like.
2) ‘Life’s a Beach’ cocktail:
Pink lemonade, Strawberries, watermelon vodka, triple sec, and coconut rum. This drink is a feisty way to cool off in the hot tub, and imagine yourself on a gorgeous beach!
3) ‘Blended Bliss’ drink:
Light rum, coconut rum, strawberries, banana, pineapple juice, coconut cream. Throw a bit of crushed ice in a blender with these ingredients to make this chilly treat for your backyard spa party!
4) ‘White Winter Chill‘ Sangria:
This one’s for the white wine drinkers out there! Best summer sangria ever. A bottle of white wine, 3 cans of Fresca, and tons of fresh chopped fruit (strawberries, pineapple, and peaches are a must!) Remember, with Sangria, it is important to let the concoction sit for a while in order to unleash all of the fresh flavors.
