Preppy Summer Drinks at Our Mountain Farmhouse

For the Children: Strawberry/Kiwi fruit Smoothies
We use any fruit, especially if it is locally in season or growing on our farm.  However, the pink and green from the strawberries and kiwi seem especially fun and preppy.
2 cups organic yogurt (we use our goat's milk instead, when we have it), 1 cup orange juice, 8 sliced strawberries, 3 peeled & sliced kiwi fruit, a dash of vanilla, honey (use as much or as little as you feel you need for sweetener), 12 ice cubes.  Blend and serve immediately.

For the Adults: Vodka Tonics
We still love our G & Ts, but we have found that we like these just as much.
1 shot Vodka, 3-5 ice cubes, 1/8 of a lime, and fill the rest of a tumbler with tonic water.  Stir, and enjoy outdoors!

For Everyone: Arnold Palmers
Named after the great golfer, of course, these can now be purchased ready-made in the grocery store, but we like to make our own.  These are wonderful to sip by the side of the pool or to take on picnics.
1 part lemonade, 1 part iced tea (we like ours sweetened), a slice of lemon.
