It seemed like it took forever for the summer weather to actually arrive. Now that we’re in full force with hot, humid days we’re hitting the pool and lake as often as possible. Water time = fun time, and what better way to burst out the fun action then with a refreshing Swimming Pool Summer Mocktail and some awesome new toys from Canada’s Fun Store!
Adults shouldn’t get to have all the fun when it comes to summer cocktails, so I wanted to create a refreshing drink the kiddos could have on those blistering hot days. I enlisted the help of The Union Street bartender, Andy. When I said I wanted it to be blue like the swimming pool he immediately said, lets use blue Gatorade! I like how he thinks; kid friendly and a little something extra to help with hydration!
- 2 oz (60ml) Motts Pina Colada Mix
- 3 oz (90ml) Blue Gatorade
- Add Pina Colada Mix and Blue Gatorade to a shaker filled with ice. Shake until frothy and pour into a tall glass. Top with Lemonade or Lemon Lime Soda. Garnish with a blue freezie and sliced fruit.
Now that the summer mocktail ideas are rolling you’re going to need something fun for the kiddos in the water. Canadian Tire has you covered this summer. Otherwise known as Canada’s Fun Store, they have everything from balls, bats, balloons, bouncers and bikes to keep the kids happy, and out of your hair this summer.
You can’t tell me that super cute floaties don’t make you want to lounge around sipping something sweet…maybe all day. You’re likely going to need a pool boy too!
Or maybe just to float by to attack your brothers with a blast from your Zip Fire Super Soakers.
The kids are armed and ready to have a great time this summer with all the fun finds at Canadian Tire. Be sure to pop over to their site to check out the entire “PLAYING” section. They have you covered from everything sports and camping related to great birthday gift ideas. Canadian Tire even has a whole lineup of Cars 3 themed toys, water fun, and bike accessories that will have the kiddos going wild after seeing this new flick now in theatres!
Refreshing Swimming Pool Summer Mocktail in hand, and a whole slew of fun toys, I think we’re ready to get this summer party started!
