Summer weather means it’s time to relax and unwind by the pool. One of the best ways to do this is by serving delicious snacks and refreshing drinks that can be enjoyed throughout the day. Whether you’re hosting friends or family members at your custom swimming pools in Lehigh County, here are our favorite poolside drink and snack ideas for adults this summer.
From Chicken Shish Kabobs to General Tso’s Cauliflower, skewers are an easy-to-make and delightful pool time snack. What’s great about skewers is that they also keep mess to a minimum and are easy to consume when floating on your favorite floating lounge chair. For a healthier alternative, try making a salad skewer using romaine and parmesan, served with a dipping sauce of your choice.
Watermelon and strawberries are timeless summer fruits, but why not elevate your palate with some delicious and exotic fruits? Mangos have a fruity and creamy taste, perfect for a hot summer day. Guava is also a rich tropical fruit with a sweet and unique taste. Add coconut shavings to either of these and be instantly whisked away to a tropical paradise.
Tacos and Queso
Tacos are loved by all, and there are so many interesting ingredients you can add to make them unique. If you want to make them healthier, you can try to use jackfruit instead of meat. You can also use fresh seafood such as salmon or lobster for a lighter but still delicious snack. Of course, no taco meal would be complete without delicious queso and cheese dip. For the adults, serve with a refreshing margarita or citrus-based mocktail.
Lavender and Hibiscus Lemonade or Ice Tea
Nothing says summer by the pool like a refreshing glass of lemonade or iced tea. To make it even more exciting, why not add not a touch of color and notes of floral by adding lavender or hibiscus. Both of these culinary flowers will not only make your summer drinks visually appealing, but they will also make them taste even more delicious.
