I have a wonderful friend who recently hosted a swim party at her house. She does this often, but this one was particularly fun because it was a "grown-up swim party". The invitations said something to the effect of, "We love our kids. We love your kids. But this time the pool will have NO kids." It felt pretty strange to arrive with only one bag over my shoulder and a dish to share, rather than schlepping the goggles, swim diapers, water wings, towels, extra set of clothes, snacks, water bottles, and the likes. It was quite liberating.
It was such a nice time to actually sit and relax poolside. It was even nicer when my friend emerged with a tray full of the coolest aluminum glasses filled with "summer slush". Oh. My. Goodness. This concoction was so refreshingly tasty. I had to get the recipe... It turns out that it's very simple and inexpensive: Just my style! I also did a little perusing to locate some of those vintage cups that she served our drinks in.
