Summer Blockbusters with Cascade Ice!

by Cascade Ice on July 16, 2015

It is the peak of summer, which means we’ve been enjoying our time at the movie theaters with all of the great new summer blockbusters! From the thrills of Jurassic World, the silliness of the Minions Movie, and the “feels” from Inside Out, we just can’t get enough. Today, we’re sharing our best recipes inspired by our favorite summer movies!

TRex Mai Tai

T-Rex Mai Tai

When we weren’t clinging to our seats during the intense T-rex chase, we were in awe of the gorgeous tropical landscape. This Jurassic World themed drink is sure to make you feel like you’re in paradise.

Begin by mixing 4 oz of Cascade Ice Orange Mango and 4 oz of Cascade Ice Coconut Pineapple. Next, stir in about 1/4 ounce of simple syrup and orgeat syrup, then add 3 drops of green food coloring.  Add crushed ice and then pour into a glass. We used a fun mason jar! Last step, garnish your fresh strawberries and slices of mango to give it the final tropical island feel.

One in a Minion

One in a Minion

This fun drink has as big of a personality as our favorite yellow characters! This blended drink will make you want to go watch the Despicable Me movies all over again.

Begin by preparing your glass. Add a piece of black tape halfway around a clear glass to make the belt for your minion. Next, adhere either one or two wiggly eyes near the top of the glass, depending on which minion character is your favorite. After you’ve designed your glass, begin by making the bottom half of the drink. Blend 3 oz of Cascade Ice Coconut with Blue Curaco (or blue food coloring for the kiddos!) over ice.  Next, make the top half, by blending 3 oz of Cascade Ice Coconut Pineapple with your favorite white rum (or Cascade Ice Organic Lemon Zest!) and ice. Pour the bottom blue layer  into your glass up to the black tape line and top it off with your yellow blend. If you desire your minion to be a brighter blue or yellow, try adding neon food coloring to make it pop!

Many Moods

We loved the harmony of the characters of Inside Out! In order to replicate how all our different moods work together, we are pairing Cascade Ice Organic sparkling water with fresh summer fruits to represent the characters.

Begin by choosing which fresh fruits you would like to represent the characters. Our suggestion is: Anger as Raspberries, Disgust as Cucumbers, Fear as Blackberries, Joy as Oranges, and Sadness as Blueberries. Add as much of each fruit to a glass as you desire. Lastly, pour your favorite Cascade Ice Organic sparkling water flavor over the fruit. We love the Mixed Berry flavor for this drink. It’s as simple as that!

We hope you enjoying making these recipes as much as you enjoyed the movies. We certainly did!
