Today's Fixation Friday is going to be short and sweet. A few weeks ago Mike and I took our first Kayak run of the season. It was a warm and comfortable day on the creek and I'm glad I planned my beverages accordingly. The night before we stopped at Wally World to get our groceries and drinks for the weekend. Mike opted for his bargain favorite Natural Light and I snatched up my tried and true favorite beer, Mich Ultra. We started getting closer to the counter when I remembered that I wanted to try some of Dailys Ready To Drink Pouch Frozen Drinks!
I quickly placed my case of beer down in a display that was clearly for soda and not for beer. I do this a lot. If you ever come to our local Walmart and find say, some pajama bottoms in the frozen food section, chances are I changed my mind and left them there and bought some hot pockets instead. Rude, yes, but it's me and I live up to my mistakes so there you go. After stashing the beer in the wrong section I started to browse the rack of Pre-made drink pouches by the checkout. There were so many flavors I didn't know where to start so I got one of each, and maybe two of the Lemonade flavor. Mike decided he'd get one as well.
Once home I read the directions on the back, freeze for 8 hours and then enjoy! Easy enough. I tossed all the pouches into the freezer and waited until morning.
We loaded up the kayaks... and by We I mean Mike and his man power loaded up the jeep with the kayaks, paddles, life vests and other odds n' ends and I did my Saturday workout, showered and got ready for the creek. Make-up is optional, but I chose to wear a little bit. I'm a girl with dark circles under here eyes after all. After my primping I packed my cooler with the frozen pouches that were almost solid ice blocks at that point. We waited for Mike's little bro P and then headed out to pick up his kayak and some ice for our coolers. I tell you all this because before getting these puppies on ice, they stayed fairly solid for a good 30 minutes without melting. Good to know if your cooler runs warm!
Once at the drop off point we got our gear ready for a float. I waited to be down the creek a ways before trying one of my frozen beverages. I think I went with the Peach first - it was amazing!!! I believe these are mostly just frozen wine coolers, no more alcohol content then say a beer and probably a shizz ton of calories so I'd watch drinking these if you're on a mission to lose weight, which I am. I don't plan on purchasing these very often. That being said I like to call them ADULT CAPRI SUNS! You open it just a slit, slide a long straw in and it's like grade school with a kick!
My favorite flavors are a toss up between Peach and this gem.... LEMONADE!!! Yes I sipped Lemonade while riding in Lemon, my kayak.
If you're looking for a quick and easy, as well as refreshing drink for the spring and summer nights, look no further. It's not a premium mixed drink but it's cheap, fun and tasty!!!
I hope you all have a great weekend! I am planning a kayak float again this weekend but I will probably stick to sipping on some water and beer!
