I have no idea what is with the weather this past month. It’s like we can’t catch a break with the heat!! I looked at the weather map today and the ENTIRE United States was red. And the little legend on the side said red meant 100+ degrees. This is crazy. I don’t remember last summer being anywhere this hot and humid. Although, I must say that on Wednesday when I was walking around the city for a breather from work, the air wasn’t humid. It was really heavy and I found it difficult to breath. My coworker then said, “you know what this feels like? I feel like we’re in a dryer.” Words have never been truer. I felt like we were in a dryer with that stale, musty, HOT, air. Our clothes were also really warm too. Total dryer moment. Maybe I should carry some Bounce with me? Ha, juuuust kidding.
So what is a girl to do with being stuck in a real life dryer? Make boozy strawberry limeades of course! These seriously made my body chill out. It took my body temp from outrageous to decent. Jason drank the entire mason jar of it – girly color or not.
I loved the acidity that the limeade brought to the drink. There was a bite to it — or was it the rum?
These drinks are so easy to make and super refreshing. So refreshing that you’ll want to sit out on your porch and sip on them and the heat won’t even bother you!
Time to go chill out with these boozy babies. Enjoy! :)
