Hey Hey!

Summer is by far our favorite season and although many of us are still in the midst of a mandatory lockdown, we are still able to enjoy time outside soaking up the sunshine. We wanted to share a recipe for a refreshing drink that is sure to keep you cool on the hot summer days. One sip and I swear your tension will melt away as your mood improves. We hope you enjoy. As always, if you make any of our drinks, take a picture and share them with us online! Instagram ---> @ staynfocusimages
