3 Simple Summer Drinks to Beat the Heat
Picture this: you're floating in the pool, reading your favorite book without a care in the world when suddenly the wild summer thirst hits you like a sack of bricks. Never to fear - when you fill out surveys for money, it's easy to pick up a number of different ingredients that can be used to whip up a quick and delicious beverage to stay hydrated for the day's next adventure. Here are a few of our favorites!
The Coffee-Flavored Slushie
For such an incredible treat, you'll be amazed that this drink can be prepared in under five minutes using three highly affordable ingredients. Class your slushie up this season by infusing it with some caffeine by blending one part chilled coffee, one part milk and one part ice in the blender, then sip and enjoy perfection. For added fun, use the cash earned with paid surveys to purchase some extra ingredients and entertain a group - this drink is perfect for catching up and gossiping with friends, and a splash of caffeination never hurt anyone.
Thanks to Kraft for the recipe to this miraculously simple poolside hydrator!
Homemade Pink Lemonade
Anyone who's ever operated their own lemonade stand from the hopeful brim of a backyard can vouch that buying from the bottle is no substitute for delicious, homemade lemonade. This spin on the classic comes from the inimitable Martha Stewart and pairs well with fresh cookies and on a hot summer day, complete with a pitcher and a group of friendly neighbors. To get started you'll need: one cup of granulated sugar, two and a half cups of fresh lemon juice, four sliced lemons to be used as garnish, one and a half cups of superfine sugar and two cups of cranberry juice. Boil granulated sugar along with a cup of water and chill to begin, then blend all other ingredients and stir until the sugar is completely dissolved.
Then, whip out your favorite set of glasses and voila! A childhood classic comes to life for all ages to enjoy.
Virgin Pina Colada
Although many would argue that the rum-infused classic is a better option, this Food Network nonalcoholic recipe is just as tasty for the days that you've got to drive. Using money from paid online surveys, it's easy to purchase the following ingredients: one cup of fresh pineapple chunks, one cup of unsweetened coconut milk, one banana, a quarter of a cup of ice cubes, two teaspoons of honey and pineapple chunks for garnish. Blend all ingredients (save the garnish) together and just like that, you and a friend can enjoy the beachside taste of a pina colada without the expensive restaurant pricing. What's more, it only takes five minutes to get this thick, delicious drink prepared!
Taking surveys for money is a simple, flexible activity that can be done in the comfort of your own home, giving you the time to enjoy the relaxation you deserve. Treat yourself today with one of these fabulous treats - you deserve it!
