This is a sweet and refreshing beverage that's perfect when cooling off in the shade. In summer, I make the sugar syrup in advance, so I can mix up a quick batch after we've been out in the sun. The syrup can keep for up to a week. —Joylyn Trickel

"We love this drink. In fact we made it into an 'adult' drink by adding strawberry vodka which makes it taste like the candy Skittles--we call it Skittle-tinis!"
