Refreshments To Make at Home


The season’s great to throw a house party with your friends, or maybe spend some quality time with your kids. With all that work and study out of the way, you can finally kick back at home and hang out with the people you love. But in this weather, you’re going to need to beat the heat if you’ll survive for long. And everybody knows that you can’t beat this heat without some awesome cooling refreshments.

So you might be thinking of just grabbing a bottle of Coca-Cola or a pack of Dr. Pepper cans, but where’s the fun in that? Shake up your hang-out at your home in La Posada Sucat with these simple (and non-alcoholic) mix-up drinks.

4) House Blend Mango Iced Tea

There are no beverages and refreshments Filipinos can make better than mango juice and sweet iced tea. Make your own house blend and put them together!

What you need:

• Iced tea mix
• Water
• Mango puree
• Pitcher

How to make it:

• In a full pitcher of water, pour about 3 cups of mango puree (or as much as you’d prefer)
• Add the iced tea (1L) mix
• If your pitcher will allow, the best way to get the delicious foam is to shake
• But if that will cause spillage, quick stirring will do the trick

5) Spr-oke-al (The Soda Mix)

You’ve had Sprite. You’ve had Coke. And you’ve had Royal. But have you ever had them all in one cup?

What you need:

• Sodas listed above.
• A cup

How to make it:

• Pour the three sodas in a 1:1:1 ratio (but I’d suggest putting a little bit more Sprite than the other two)

Now, what are you waiting for? Call up your friends, gather up your family, and get blending!
