The Best Italian Ice
Now that the heat of summer is in full-swing, there is nothing more refreshing that a nice cup of Italian Ice. One of our long-time favorite brands happens to be Lindy’s Homemade™ Italian Ice. They have the best flavor combinations and are super affordable. I usually pick up a few boxes each week for my kids.
Lindy’s Homemade™ Italian Ice comes in Lemon, Watermelon, Strawberry, Black Cherry, Mango, Pineapple, Blue Raspberry, Orange, Cherry, Root Beer, Strawberry Lemon, and Raspberry Lemon to name a few!
This brand has a traditional, true Italian Ice taste and texture, and is gluten-free, fat-free, and Non-GMO! It also has a long 2-year shelf life so be sure to stock up!
Italian Ice Margaritas
But, Italian Ice is not just for kids! One day, I wanted a margarita but didn’t have all the ingredients for a flavorful one. Then, a lightbulb went off in my head – Why not make my own with Italian Ice? I happened to have some Lindy’s Homemade™ Italian Ice on-hand and decided to blend it up and add a little tequila.
Can you say perfection? Of course, this drink is was delicious! Any flavor of Lindy’s Homemade™ Italian Ice works and you can even dress it up with some fresh watermelon and strawberries–add some garden-fresh mint for a real treat! Overall, this was the BEST drink I have had in a while!
More Italian Ice Mixed Drinks
You can easily swap the tequila in this recipe for rum to make a daquiri. Use vodka to make a Screwdriver with the orange flavor. Really, the possibilities are endless for a refreshing summertime drink!
