Refreshing Drinks for a Lazy Summer Day (or Night)

Consider this a friendly reminder to enjoy the summer which too quickly comes to an end, and don't forget to re-hydrate! Forget the Minute Maid from concentrate and make some fresh and fruity lemonade. Hey, you could even have a lemonade stand for old times sake! Frappes and ice cream shakes are a tempting option, but these iced tea, punch, and spritzer recipes are equally as refreshing.
