Enjoy drinking something fun without a crazy price tag!

Create your fancy drinks at home. Make ice cubes by freezing fruit juice or iced tea - or by adding mint leaves or berries to water - anything to make your everyday drinks a little bit more special.

What's your favorite fancy drink?

I don't have a favorite fancy drink. I may come up with one now. I will play around with varieties.

I like to make fruit and spinach or Kale smoothies and if I want it to look special, I garnish it with a strawberry cut to fit on the rim of the cup :)  The kids love it too.

My husband and I have knocked our grocery budget down enough to where we have started having a cocktail before dinner occasionally.  It is great!

I don't have a fancy drink.  I did get a recipe from a friend to dress up your ice tea with fresh mint and fruit.  I will have to try it.
