Minty Peach Lemonade

Before I begin with my hopefully not too wordy post, I want to thank my possible volunteers for the guest post. I appreciate you all and I know that it takes effort from your side, so THANK YOU! As for the order on publishing the guest post, it will be like ‘first in, first out’. So whoever sends me the email for the guest post first, you will be the first one to go live. I think that would be fair enough for the guests. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Of course, I will tell you when it is when I’m done scheduling everything.

If you have missed the story on why I am asking for volunteers for the guest post, it is because I might be away from the computer. The requirements – no pork or alcohol (or anything related). And the deadline for submission is on August 23rd… so volunteers can still email me. Please take note that in case CONFIRMEDย volunteers will be more than 10, the others’ post will be published by October, which is my birth month, so you could still offer me your guest post as birthday gift. ๐Ÿ˜€ Am I selfish to ask everyone to do a guest post for me? ๐Ÿ˜›

IF YOU STILL WANT TO BE MY GUESTย and you did not meet the deadline, that will be great as well. I will still publish your guest post. If you’re game to be my guest, drop me an email. ๐Ÿ˜‰

And now, it’s time for FF#29…

Get your swimwear ready as we will be partying at the pool today…

Right, Selma?

Um, Selma?

Aren’t you here yet?

Okay…

I guess I’ll be alone co-hosting for the time being.

Oh, no!! YOU ARE ALREADY HERE, AND ANGIE, TOO!! That would be fun!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

Yes, I am co-hosting again with the super amazing and beautiful Selma. I really don’t think this woman needs an introduction at all. But, if it happens that you are new, come and give Selma a visit at Selma’s Table.

As always, thank you,ย Angie,ย for creating this amazing party!!

****

Please bear with me and calm me down when I am on hyper mode. But, I don’t think I will be – I did not even bring sweets with me. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ If I will be bouncy and hyper today due to the sugar overload, maybe I will be thrown into the pool… and that is not good. And because I will behave (ehem!) today, I’ll be just right here – giving everyone a glass of this… and hide some of the sweets

When Selma emailed me about co-hosting FF#29 with her, I immediately gave her [email] a big green. ๐Ÿ˜€ Felt so excited, eh? And we agreed about the pool party, which of course, approved by our super creative, amazing, talented [and everything] host, Angie. I think Angie hit up the gym so she could look best at her swimwear. Ooopss! Am I even allowed to say that?

Back to my excitement, I realized that my recipe posts donโ€™t always go along with the weather. So for todayโ€™s party, I have decided to go with the weather. I was so excited to make this โ€“ checked the recipe multiple times, making sure that I donโ€™t miss anything.

Aside from the fruits, I have the other ingredients. I made a mental list for the fruits and bought them.

And itโ€™s time to make the drinkโ€ฆ

  1. Jhuls that sounds so tasty! It’s starting to cool down a little in the UK, but I think we might squeeze a few more hot days out of the summer yet. Sounds like the perfect refreshing drink to go with our last BBQ’s!!

  2. Oh Jhuls, if I am not going away for 2 months myself, I would offer to be a guest post on your blog in a heart beat. But have fun on your time-away-from-computer, yes?

    Happy FF# 29 to you, my sweet friend. Your lemonade here is so refreshing, just want I need for a pool party ๐Ÿ™‚

    Huge hugs

  3. Hey Jhuls! So, Selma asked me to keep an eye on you for a bit…โ€ฆUh Jhulsโ€ฆyou can’t stay in the pool for the whole party! Your skin will go all wrinkly and some of the guests have been looking for you! They love your drink and want you to make another pitcher! I’d really like a glass too! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Phew, now that I’ve done my job, I just want to tell you that this is a gorgeous summer lemonade and I can’t wait to try making it! ๐Ÿ˜€

  4. This looks and sounds amazing, midnight is the perfect time for lemonade drinking right?! And I love how you didn’t get enough lemons, that’s the kind of thing I would do – I do do in fact! When I go grocery shopping with my friend I’m in charge of making the lists and we get there and say there’s “chicken broth” on the list and she says “how much” and I’m like “…umm?? I don’t know, just get this one it’ll be fine!” she gets very frustrated with me! I’m not sure why I’m still allowed to make the lists haha!

    So great to see you co-hosting again Jhuls ๐Ÿ˜€ Have a great FF!

    1. Suzanne, I think I am lost and replying to comments from FF29. ๐Ÿ˜€ Life was kinda busy, so I had to set aside blogging. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I am happy to see you here. Thanks as always!

    1. Sonal!! I am not in a wrong party – just checking what I left behind. ๐Ÿ˜€

      Glad that you left a note for me. Amd glad thay you love everything at FF29. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Very refreshing Jhuls! Always love reading and seeing your posts!
    When is the deadline for the guest post again? Things have been so crazy busy that I forgot!

  6. Jhules this looks so divine and a great way to make the grey whether we are having over here a little more summery! Thanks for hosting, can’t wait to link up in a bit…!

  7. Yummy lemonade, Jhuls, and it goes perfectly with the season. Peaches are at their height now in my neck of the woods. You are too funny dear, and I see you are nearing the edge of that pool – be careful before you get nudged in! Thanks for co-hosting and happy FF!

  8. I’m loving peach lemonade this summer too!!! And this one with mint looks amaaaazing! It’s perfect for lounging by the pool and or to use to distract others when the desserts come out. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Happy Fiesta Friday Miss Jhuls!!!

    1. I have taken lots of extra desserts with me when I made another batch of this, Lina. While they are refilling their glasses, I was busy taking desserts. ๐Ÿ˜€

  9. Thanks for co-hosting with Selma! I just love a poolside party. ๐Ÿ™‚

    The minty peach lemonade recipe looks delicious. I think everyone likes their lemonade differently. We were making a blueberry lemonade the other day, and my mom preferred more water in the recipe than my sister or me.

    Happy FF, and have a wonderful weekend!!

  10. Hey Jhuls, great to see you hosting FF again. I’m loving this lemonade, it definitely goes with the weather/season.

    I’ll probably be emailing you too about a guest post if that’s alright with you ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. Hi, Jess! I waited for the email and I am still waiting. ๐Ÿ˜€ I know the deadline is up but you can still send me as I have guest bloggers for October. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      1. Awesome! The only reason I haven’t sent it yet was because I missed the deadline and didn’t think you needed it anymore- but now this changes everything lol Expect the email in your inbox VERY soon ๐Ÿ˜‰

Thanks for reading! Let me know your thoughts...
