My top 2 drinks for Summer ’17

Hey guys

The following are my top 2 Summer drinks for 2017. These are both great for the hot Summer days. The first one is a cooler option to chill by the pool, while the second is a refreshing alternative to drink instead of your usual boring black coffee. I have been loving both of these, especially the Iced Coffee since I’m more of a coffee lover. Hope you enjoy!
