They seriously have to come up with a Mom's Summer Survival Kit. While my girls are not yet in school, and I should be used to being home with them all day, once summer started, it seemed like their internal clocks were thrown off. Both girls said goodbye to naps, and because the sun sets later and rises early, so did the girls in going to bed later and getting up at the crack of dawn. Oh, how I wish I could sleep in until at least 7AM just for one day, and go to bed before 11PM, without having to get up a few times in the night.
What would my Mom Summer Survival Kit consist of?
1. Eye Mask or Sunglasses if I am laying poolside
2. Gossip magazines to veg out with
3. Mani-/Pedi gift certificate to also unwind with
4. Take out so I don't have to cook
5. comfy new slippers
6. Daily's Cocktails Frozen Pouches :-)
See, I am not asking for much. I would have added wine to the list, but with the hot summer weather, I prefer to sip on a cold frozen cocktail at the end of a crazy day with the girls. Now, I am no bartender, nor do I stock the bar with various mixed drink supplies. So, when it comes to fruity drinks of any sort, I always look for already made mixes. Last year, I was introduced to Daily's Cocktails Frozen Pouches , and have been hooked ever since. I remember being sent samples right before a big cookout. I ended up saving them to sample with family and friends, and ended up being the hit of the party. :-) Now, whenever we are invited anywhere for a BBQ, I am always asked to bring Daily's Cocktails Frozen Pouches.
I make a point to always have a few ready to serve Daily's Cocktails Frozen Pouches in the freezer, in case I want to enjoy a great tasting frozen cocktail, without the fuss of trying to figure out how to make my own mixed drink. And, with flavors that include the following, how could you resist:
Tropical Pina Colada
Tropical Bahama Mama
Tropical Blue Hawaiian
Light Strawberry Margarita
Light Pink Lemonade
Light Mango Passion Fruit Daiquiri
A few weeks ago, the folks at Daily's Cocktails sent along a Walmart gift card and fun beach bag filled with Daily's Cocktails swag for me, in hopes I would try out some of their new flavors, and share with family and friends. Who would turn down the opportunity to try out frozen wine cocktails? I sure wouldn't...especially now with my girls in summer crazy mode. :-) Unfortunately, when I went to our local Walmart, they didn't have these frozen cocktails on hand, as the store is being redone into a super Walmart. Determined to find Daily's Cocktails, I headed to my local grocery, only to be disappointed ago. But, thankfully, the liquor store next to the market had Daily's Cocktails Frozen Pouches on hand, and chilling in the freezer chest for me. It was like they knew I was coming to get some. Not wanting to decide which few flavors to get, I ended up picking up a few of each flavor. And, that night, I called my girlfriends over for some much needed girls night out fun.
We had a great time relaxing on the back deck at the fire pit enjoying good company and conversation, as we sampled each of the Daily's Cocktails frozen drinks. In the end, we all agreed that the Tropical Hurricane and Tropical Pina Colada were our favorites. I can still taste the coconut and pineapple goodness of the Pina Colada frozen wine cocktail. :-) These frozen cocktails are so tasty and refreshing, and really make for a great way to unwind after a busy/crazy day with the kids. Simply freeze in advance, take out, gently massage the package, and then tear open and pour in your favorite glass. How much easier could it get? :-)
So, as the summer season winds down, why not make a point to look for Daily's Cocktails the next time you shop your local Walmart store. Or, if you have trouble finding these frozen cocktails like I did, try your local liquor store, as they probably carry them. I know that once you try these delicious frozen cocktails, you will be hooked. :-)
