3 Refreshing summer drinks to cool you down

Hey friends, today we are going to make some of my favorite crisp and refreshing summer drinks to cool you down during the long, hot days! They are so tasty and easy to make, you`re going to love them!

So, today we are been making 3 different refreshing summer drinks. Is`s awesome way to keep it cool during the hot days, to hydrate and refresh you, but also to give you a little bit of vitamins. 

GINGER MINT LEMONADE

3 Refreshing summer drinks recipe

You`re going to need:

1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1/2 cup white sugar 
1/2 cup water 
4 cups water 
1 inch piece of ginger, peeled and diced 
1/4 cup mint leaves

We`re going to start with making a simple syrup, because this is how we are going to sweeten our lemonade. If you don`t want to use sugar, feel free to skip this step and use another liquid sweetener, like agave nectar or maple syrup.

In a small sauce pan combine sugar and water and put it on a medium high heat. Wisk it until all the sugar dissolves. In the meantime, peel the ginger and slice it, and wash a fresh mint. Take off the sauce pan from the heat, add the ginger and mint and let it infuse for 10 minutes. If you like the taste of ginger to be stronger, you can leave it for another 5 minutes, but for me, 10 is just perfect. After 10 minutes remove ginger from the syrup and let it cool to room temperature.

Next, we are going to squeeze juice from the lemons and orange and set it aside. I used 2 large lemons and one orange, and that was perfect.

Now, in a large pitcher add your infused simple syrup, then add lemon and orange juice and cold water and give it a nice stir. Add a few slices of fresh lemon and a little bit of mint and it`s done.

Serve it in your favorite glass, (I like to use my mason jar) with lots of ice, slice of lemon and fresh sprig of mint. Yummy! This is so delicious, with a nice hint of ginger and mint and refreshing taste of lemons and oranges. Trust me, you need to try it and you will be addicted!

CHERRY LEMONADE

3 Refreshing summer drinks recipe

You`re going to need:

1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice 
1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1/2 cup fresh or frozen cherries
1/2 cup cherry juice (freshly squeezed or store both)
1/2 cup white sugar 
1/2 cup water 
4 cups water 

3 Refreshing summer drinks recipe3 Refreshing summer drinks recipe

Like before, we`re going start with making a simple syrup, but this time, we are going to infuse it with our cherries. Let it sit in a syrup for about 15 minutes, until it pick up all the flavor and color. Next, we are going to squeeze the lemon and orange juice and set it aside. I used 1 large lemons and 1 orange, because the cherries are also tart like lemon, and that was perfect. 
3 Refreshing summer drinks recipe

Now, in a large pitcher add your infused simple syrup with cherries, then add lemon, orange and cherry juice and finish with a cold water.  Give it a nice stir and add a few slices of fresh lemon and it`s done.

I decided to serve it in a vine glass, but to make it look pretty, I run a slice of lemon over the top and deep it into some sugar. Use lots of ice, add some cherries and enjoy! This one is especially refreshing and delicious because of the cherries! You can thank me later!

3 INGREDIANT PINK LEMONADE SYRUP

3 Refreshing summer drinks recipe

You`re going to need:

300 gr. fresh strawberries

500 gr. fresh lemons

800 gr. sugar

2 jars

This one is little bit different from the others, because we are going to be making a syrup. This is a great way to make your summer refreshing drink ahead of time and save the taste of fresh strawberries for longer, or when they are out of the season. It`s also great for summer parties, because you`ll have a less work and more time to enjoy!

3 Refreshing summer drinks recipe3 Refreshing summer drinks recipe

Unfortunately, I lost my footage on how to make it, but it`s really simple. First you need to clean your lemons in some water and bicarbonate soda. This will take most of the dirt and chemicals from the skin, because we are going to use them whole. Then put them in a small sauce pan and let them boil for a few minutes, just to make sure they are absolutely clean. 

Cut your strawberries in 1/4 and set aside. Cut your lemons length wise and then cut each half into a slices. Don`t forget to take the seeds off from the lemon. Transfer lemons and strawberries into a large bawl and add the sugar. Gently stir everything together and fill the clean and sterilized jars. Close and let sit on the counter for a few days, or until the sugar dissolves and liquid in a jar become clear. 

3 Refreshing summer drinks recipe3 Refreshing summer drinks recipe

You will need just a 2-3 table spoons of syrup/glass. In your favorite glass add some fruits from the jar, lots of ice and garnish with fresh strawberry. Your kids will get nuts about this one! I strongly recommend you to make a double batch of this delicious syrup, because it`s going to disappear in a blink of an eye! 

P.S. You can turn all three of these into a more grown up drinks by adding some vodka. 💃

I really hope you`ll try these this summer and love them as much as I do. Let me know in the comments what`s your favorite summer drink and share the recipe, so we can all enjoy it!

Summer-Themed Printable Monthly Planners {Free Printables}

Summer is upon us, so I decided to create a set of summer-themed printable monthly planners for my free printables blog series.

Summer-Themed Printable Monthly Planners {Free Printables}

Summer-Themed Printable Monthly Planners {Free Printables}

I don’t know about you, but my productivity tends to go down in the summer. With the gorgeous weather beckoning us to join in on all of those fun outdoor activities, I find it hard to keep on top of all the details involved with managing our family and home. Oh, and there’s also those not so fun work-related tasks that need to get done!

Although I use my planner to keep track of my To Do’s, I thought it might be helpful to create a monthly planner to see exactly what I need to tackle in both my personal and work life at the beginning of each month during the summer. I like the idea of capturing all of this information as a monthly snapshot on a single piece of paper that I can use as a blueprint for each month.

The Monthly Planner allows you to capture the following information in one convenient place:

  • your top 3 goals to accomplish each month
  • important dates to remember (birthdays, holidays, events, etc.)
  • major expenses that you’ll incur that month (so that you can plan your finances accordingly)
  •  tracking your progress on any habits you’re working on (e.g., exercise, water intake)
  • miscellaneous notes and reminders
  • an end-of-summer countdown 

I included the end-of-summer countdown to help me remember to schedule out the activities on my summer fun “bucket list” before it’s too late. While it’s important to be productive during the summer months, it’s equally important to enjoy the season with your family and friends as much as possible!

The prettier the printable, the more likely we will want to use it, right? So I created two gorgeous summer-themed planners for you to choose from — a pink version and a blue version! I had to think about my mail readers too, right?

HOW TO USE YOUR SUMMER-THEMED PRINTABLE MONTHLY PLANNERS:

1. Download your free Summer-Themed Monthly Planner Printable and save it on your desktop.

Downoad here >>>  Summer-Themed Printable Monthly Planner – Pink
Downoad here >>>  Summer-Themed Printable Monthly Planner – Blue

2. At the beginning of July & August, print out a copy onto a standard A4 piece of paper using a standard ink jet printer.

3. Use your monthly planner to be intentional about the month ahead!

I hope you find these summer-themed printable monthly planners to be useful. Wishing you a productive & fun rest of the summer.

Oh, and be sure to check out my collection of free printables designed to help you get organized and be productive!

How To Be A Goal Getter/Goal Getter Planner Review

We are half way to a new year and it`s time to review our goals and our progress. New Goal Getter Planner from Moj Rokovnik.rs is a perfect tool to achieve any goal and become a goal getter!
How To Be A Goal Getter
Na polovini smo godine i pravi je trenutak sa se osvrnemo na ono što smo do sada postigli. Novi planer pod nazivom Goal Getter is kompanije Moj Rokovnik.rs je odlična alatka za ostvarivanje ciljeva uz koju i vi postajete "goal getter".

Acording to Urban Dictionary "goal getter" is someone who strives to achieve their ultimate goal regardless if the outcome is good or bad.

Everyone has goals. Every single person you talk to has a goal they would like to reach one day. They believe it's their goal. Yet majority of them rarely ever do a anything to reach it. Those aren't goals - they're dreams.
In order to achieve any goal, goal getters don`t dream, they get things done! They take action every single day in order to make their dreams come true. 
There are several steps you can take to become a goal getter.

Definicija Goal Getter-a (Urban Dictionary) glasi da je to osoba koja se trudi da postigne svoj ultimativni cilj bez obzira na krajnji rezultat.

Svako od nas ima svoje ciljeve. Ako razgovarate sa bilo kim, uvidećete da ta osoba ima cilj koji bi želela da ostvari jednog dana. Ali većina ljudi zapravo ne radi ništa na tome. I onda ciljevi postaju samo snovi koji se nikada ne ostvare.
Po čemu se goal getter-i razlikuju od ostalih, pitate se? Da bi postigli svoj cilj, "goal getter-i ne sanjaju, oni rade svakog dana na onome što žele da ostvare. Ako i vi želite da postanete goal getter, evo nekoliko koraka koji vam u tome mogu pomoći.

1. Have a very specific goal
I will explain this step further. Let say you want to lose wait... It`s a goal, but it`s not very clear. It can be a few pounds, or more... So it`s not really specific. Your goal always need to be clear so you know what is your target before you star aiming it. New Goal Getter planner can help you determinate your goals with a few simple tests. This tests will help you get a better picture of all the aspects of your life, what you accomplished so far and where you want to be in the future. If you have a clear goal in your mind, you have a better chance to accomplish it.
1.Jasno određen cilj
Da bih ovo bolje objasnila, navešću vam jednostavan primer. Recimo, želite sa smršate... To jeste cilj, ali prilično neodređen. Možda želite da smršate dva kilograma, ili pet ili deset... Dakle "smršati" nije bar konkretan cilj, jer ne znate koliko i u kom roku želite da smršate. Vaš cilj uvek treba da bude konkretizovan, tako da znate šta je cilj i pre nego što krenete da ga ostvarujete. Novi Goal Getter planer može u tome da vam pomogne. Na samom početku nalazi se nekoliko testova uz pomoć kojih ćete steći jasniju sliku o svom životu i onome što ste do sada postigli u različitim sferama svog života, a šta želite da postignete u budućnosti. Jer, kao što sam rekla, ako imate jasan i određen cilj ispred sebe, veće su šanse da ćete ga i ostvariti. 
How to be a goal getter
2. Have a plan and routines
Every great battle starts with a plan. Achieving the goal can be overwhelming, because we want instant results and trying to do all at once. Of course, it`s not possible, so people tends to give up even before they start. But, goal getter don`t think that way. He makes plan and stick to it. 
Good plan includes:
- the goal
- course of action to reach the goal
- deadline to hit the goal
- daily plan to keep up the above 3
Don`t be trapped in your own feelings, just think of small thing you can do every day to achieve your goal. Then do it! Then think about small thing you can do tomorrow. Do it! Simple as that. That is your routine. Goal Getter Planner has a pages dedicated to making a new routines that`s going to help you to stick to your goals. You can write down your ideas for the new routines for every day of the week and pages for ideas for morning and evening routines. Once you set your routines, it will be much easier to schedule your time and organize your day in order to reach your goals. 
2. Napravite plan i rutine
Svaka velika "bitka" počinje planom. Znam da postizanje ciljeva ume da bude teško i obeshrabrujuće, jer svi želimo da vidimo rezultate brzo. Naravno to najčešće nije moguće, pa zato često odustanemo i pre nego što smo počeli. Ali goal getter ne razmišlja tako. On napravi plan i čvrsto ga se drži.
Evo šta dobar plan mora da sadrži:
- cilj
- radnje koje dovode do cilja
- rok za dostizanje cilja
- dnevni plan koji omogućava sprovođenje prve tri stavke
Najvažnije je se ne obeshrabrite. Razmislite koju sitnu stvar koje možete da učinite danas, a koji vas vodi do cilja. Onda je sprovedite u delo. Potom razmislite šta je to što možete učiniti sutra. I to sprovedite u delo! Zapravo je vrlo jednostavno. Činite to svakog dana i stvorite rutinu. Goal Getter planer ima poglavlje koje je posvećeno stvaranju novih rutina za svaki dan i svaku nedelju, kao i deo koji je posvećen idejama za nove jutarnje i večernje rutine. Jednom kada uspostavite nove rutine, biće vam mnogo lakše da rasporedite svoje vreme i organizujete dan tako da uvek imate vremena za radnje koje vode ostvarenju vašeg cilja.

3. Visualize and take notes
Vision is not a dream. By creating a vision board you make yourself a clear picture of accoplished goal you can daily refer to be encouraged by. It`s popular with a reason, it`s a powerful tool which helps you to stay focused and get your goals. Also, it`s very good strategy to always have your journal or planner with you. Goal Getter has a pages where you can take notes about things that stopping you from making progress, what works and what not works, how to fix it, what to change or improve...etc. This notes will help you see if your plan and daily habits leads to getting your goal or not. Then you can adjust your daily plan and get back on track easily.
3. Vizualizujte i beležite
Viziualizacija nije sanjarenje. Kreiranjem tzv. vision board-a vi zapravo stvarate jasnu sliku postignutog cilja, koju možete pogledati svaki put kada vam je potreban podstrek ili inspiracija. Ovaj metod nije tek tako stegao veliku popularnost, on je moćna alatka koja vam pomaže da ostanete fokusirani na svoj cilj. Uz to, veoma je dobro da uz sebe uvek imate notes ili svoj planer, kako biste zabeležili svoje misli. Goal Getter planer je osmislio stranice u koje možete zapisati šta vas sputava u ostvarivanju ciljeva, šta se pokazalo kao dobra, a šta kao neuspešna strategija, šta možete da učinite da biste savladali prepreke i napredovali itd. Ove beleške će vam pomoći da utvrdite da li vaše dnevne rutine i planovi vode ostvarivanju zadatih ciljeva ili ne. Tada ćete znati kako da korigujete svoje dnevne planove i da krenete napred.
How to be a goal getter
4. Be persistent and determined 
To actually become a goal getter means you are persistent and not afraid of fail or mistake.  Goal getter is something like a marathon runner. They know it`s going to be a long, hard run and they may not win it, but they still practice every day and don`t give up in advance. Similar, goal getter do what they need to do every day, taking one step at the time. They are always focused on the next step, because this step is one step more they achieved in order to design their own life, life they want for themselves. They now it`s going to be a mistakes on the way, but they don`t get discouraged. Instead, they think about the mistake, why they make it and how to fix it. They are determined, persistent and patient, because every goal takes time.
To help you with setting the time for each goal, Goal Getter Planner gives you a chart where you can set time frame for goals you have in every aspect of your life.  You can set goals  in 3, 6, 9 or 12 months, depending on how much time that goal needs. This planner also has pages where you can brake down every goal in single steps with a deadline. Because, remember, goal is a series of steps, one step at the time.
4.Budite istrajni i odlučni
Biti goal getter, znači imati strpljenja, biti istrajan i ne plašiti se grešaka ili neuspeha. Goal getter je pomalo kao maratonac. On zna da će trka biti duga i zamorna i da možda neće pobediti, ali ga to ne sprečava da svakoga dana uporno trenira. On nikada ne odustaje pre početka trke. Slično tome, goal getter svakoga dana preduzima radnje neophodne za ostvarenje svog cilja, jedan po jedan korak približavajući se finišu. On je uvek fokusiran na sedeći korak, korak koji će ga približava cilju, dati mu mogućnost da sam oblikuje svoj život i živi život kakav želi. On zna da će na tom putu biti prepreka, ali on ne dozvoljava da ga one obeshrabre. Naprotiv, on razmišlja i analizira svoje greške, učeći na njima. On je uporan, odlučan i strpljiv jer zna da se ciljevi ne ostvaruju preko noći. Da bi vam pomogao, Goal getter planer sadrži tabelu u kojoj možete upisati ciljeve za svaki aspekt vašeg života. Različiti ciljevi traže različite rokove, a vi odredite da li će to biti 3, 6, 9 ili 12 meseci. Takođe, ovaj planer sadrži i deo u kome možete svoj cilj da razložite na pojedinačne korake, upišete koji su to koraci i potom odredite rok za njihovu realizaciju. Jer, ponoviću, svaki cilj je zapravo serija koraka, koje treba preduzeti jedan po jedan.
How to be a goal getter
Besides all the above, this planner will help you with your finances with a monthly review of spending and saving, monthly chart for bills and incomes. It also contains a list of medical appointments and year in a pixels, so you can have a better insight of your feelings and moods during the year. You also have a pages for important dates (like birthdays, anniversaries etc.) and to do lists for everyday chores. Then you will find weekly spreads with place to write 3 most important tasks of the week, notes, list of tasks and routines. After every weekly spread you will also find the empty pages to take notes. Pages in this planner are undated, so you can start using it at any time, which is very convenient and makes it easy to use. 
I really like it and I hope it will help me in the future. If you have a goals you want to achieve, try this method and let me know how it went. 
How to be a goal getter
Pored svega navedenog, Goal Getter Planer će vam pomoći i sa vašim finasijama. On sadrži mesečni pregled troškova i štednje, mesečnu tabelu svih računa i prihoda. 
Takođe, u njemu ćete pronaći i tabelu svih zakazanih medicinskih pregleda, kao i godinu u pikselima, tako da na kraju godine steknete bolji uvid u svoja raspoloženja i osećanja. 
U njemu ćete pronaći i stranice za važne događaje (rođendane, godišnice i sl.), kako i popularne to-do liste. Pored toga tu je i nedeljni planer sa tri najvažnija zadatka za tu nedelju, beleške, liste zadataka i rutine. Nakon svake nedelje nalaze se stranice za beleške, ideje i zapažanja.  Planer nema datume, tako da je vrlo praktičan i možete bilo kada početi i nastaviti da ga koristite.  
Meni se Goal Getter Planer zaista dopao, mislim da je odlično koncipiran i da će mi zaista biti koristan. Ukoliko i vi imate ciljeve koje želite da ostvarite, pokušajte ovaj metod i poručite svoj primerak Goal Getter Planera i javite mi u komentarima šta je najvažniji cilj koji biste želeli da ostvarite.
