Pink Bikini

"Talk about an easy--and fun--summer drink recipe! I love the girly pink color and sweet coconut taste. One sip, and I'm transported from my Birmingham backyard to the Bahamas. And to make the drink "skinny" I use Crystal Light raspberry lemonade in place of frozen juice for fewer calories."  
—Jacquelyne Froeber, Travel Editor

Margarita de Sandia

"This margarita recipe is a breeze to put together before a party--and who doesn't love a fiesta where your guests don't have to yell over a blender the whole time? Instead of limes, garnish each glass with mini-watermelon slices and candy-colored salt for the rim!" —Caitlin Miller, Copy/Production Assistant

Avocado Fries

"I love the crisp texture of the panko paired with the creamy avocado. It's important to find barely ripe avocados--the really soft ones will fall apart when frying." —Julia Rutland, Senior Food Editor
