Celebrating Summer with Zak!

Featured Item: Zak Designs Ice Cream Tubbie

I’m excited to be sharing some ideas with ZAK Designs, for keeping cool while the weather is hot.  We love to host casual parties on the patio or by the pool, but keeping food and drinks chilled is very important and a high priority.  Here are some of my ideas and recipes to incorporate when you’re out in the heat.

Zak Designs Ice Cream Tubbies

I love using the Ice Cream Tubbie to keep foods cold, and of course they are great for more than just ice cream.  Although the lid has a freezable gel, I found that when you store your food inside the container and freeze or refrigerate it, it stays chilled even longer.  This makes it great for serving pasta or potato salads, sliced fruit, or even holding ice cubes.  The colors are perfect for summer parties too!

Speaking of ice cubes, here’s an idea for keeping drinks cold with style

Speaking of ice cubes, here’s an idea for keeping drinks cold  with style.  There is a large selection of shaped silicone ice trays these days, and I love to use them when entertaining.  Here I used a flower shape and a star shaped mold. For variety, I filled some with water, place fresh blueberries in some, and filled some with flavored juice.  The result is an ice bucket filled with festive ice shapes!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Peach Nectar, chilled
  • 1 cup White Grape Juice, chilled
  • 1 1/2 cups Ginger Ale, chilled

Combine the peach and white grape juices together.  Add ginger ale just before serving and pour over ice.

Finally, this easy drink idea is perfect for summer and is sure to please everyone.

Finally, this easy drink idea is perfect for summer and is sure to please everyone.  Use a mini scoop to scoop out sherbet balls and place in a tall thin glass or flute.  Pour ginger ale or champagne over the ice cream balls for a fantastic drink for kids or adults.  The sherbet will keep the bubbly cold and will add flavor as it begins to melt.

These are just some of the ideas to help keep things cool while hosting a gathering in the summer.  You can find more of my ideas for stylish entertaining at Celebrations At Home {www.celebrationsathomeblog.com}.

Cheers!
