Announcing Event Mocktails and Coolers with three Prizes

Great is the sun, and wide he goes
Through empty heaven with repose;
And in the blue and glowing days
More thick than rain he showers his rays.

Though closer still the blinds we pull
To keep the shady parlour cool,
Yet he will find a chink or two
To slip his golden fingers through.

Summer Sun by Robert Louis Stevenson

With the summer heat there is nothing better than a refreshing and cooling drink to rehydrate you and quench your thirst.This wonderful event is all about DRINKS.

Mocktails are virgin drinks ie they have no alcohol in them. Try your hand at them, use any fruits, juices, non alcoholic spritzers, sparkling water to create a mocktail. Give it a zanny name and post it on your blog.
Be creative garnish it with a simple fruit / veg garnish, shaped ice cubes, coloured suger, sugar crystalised flowers in fact any decoration that you wish.

Coolers are any thing that makes you feel cool and quenches your thirst, it can be smoothies, lassis (yoghurt drink), milkshakes, fruit or vegetable juices. Again be creative, garnish it and present it on your blog.
