Opinion Outpost Shows You the Coolest Summer Drinks

It goes without saying that parenting is tough during the summer - the kids become restless, the breathing time you used to have while they were in school disappears and the pressure to spend extra money on fun activities is at an all-time high. Fortunately, there are a number of ways to avoid this seasonal stress, first when you earn extra money online by taking paid surveys at home with Opinion Outpost, then by rewarding yourself with a well-earned cocktail by the beach. If you're at a loss for what delicious drink to whip up when you're winding down, here are some bright ideas for the latest and greatest in simple summer drinks!

Summer Cosmopolitan 
The ingredients needed to make a truly impressive summer cosmo are a little on the pricey side, but when you fill out surveys for money, the issue of cost is completely eliminated. Allrecipes provided those of age with a delicious option to enjoy after a long day at the pool with the kids. All you need to make this delicious concoction is one and a half ounces of jigger vodka, a half ounce of cointreau, a teaspoon of fresh lime juice, one and a half ounces of cranberry juice and a simple twist of lime zest as garnish. Mixed together, this cosmo will leave you in sheer bliss.

Red Wine Sangria
If you can't afford a lavish vacation to the Spanish shores, you can earn money at home to secure the next-best thing - delicious, fruity sangria. The always-delicious Food Network website gave those looking for a getaway in a glass with a sweet and sour recipe provided by master chef and TV personality Bobby Flay. Since this drink is made by the pitcher, there's are quite a few ingredients and you'll likely want to invite a few friends over to enjoy this incredible treat. Flay recommends using two bottle of red table wine (Spanish if possible), a cup of brandy, a half cup of triple sec, one cup each of orange and pomegranate juice, a half cup of simple syrup, and a luscious fruit garnish - orange and apple slices, blackberries, and pomegranate seeds are recommended. Take a deep sip and close your eyes - you'll almost be able to hear the ocean waves in the distance!

Cucumber Pineapple Tequila Cooler
This original recipe comes courtesy of Food Network master chef Amanda Freitag, and includes some upscale ingredients that can be purchased using the money you make from paid online surveys on Opinion Outpost. The cooler is great for an outdoor barbeque and will fill you right up with its delicious thickness. All you need to put it together is a cup of fresh pineapple cubes, two limes without the skin, a peeled seedless cucumber (European if you can find it), four ounces of silver tequila, a cup and a half of ice cubes, a tablespoon of agave nectar and a simple pinch of kosher salt. Voilà!

This summer, create your own fun - once you're making money online, the power is in your hands!
