I love carbonated beverages and Coca-Cola™ has been a staple in my family for years. I will admit that I haven't consumed it as much since moving to SoCal because I've always found that it was more for large group entertaining with tons of crispy snacks but I don't think like that anymore. I love water, I love sparkling water, but I ADORE an ice cold Coke and having something refreshing and fun to go along with my weekend chill time is where it's at!
This past Memorial Day Weekend I took advantage of extra days off work to enjoy my surroundings. I skipped all the crazy BBQ's and soaked up the quietness of my cute little neighborhood. Because I wanted to feel as if I was doing something I made avocado deviled eggs and shrimp ceviche because I wanted to eat things that were cold and refreshing as well as tasty.
Prepping and putting my snacks together was really easy and I was able to munch on them within an hour of thinking them up. The longest time was 'cooking' the shrimp in lime, which had the house smell AMAZING FYI! While I was at it I made sure to put a few bottles of Coke in the fridge to make sure they were really cold because that's how I like to drink it. And even with that I still put tons of ice in my cup. I know, it's a lot, but it's so worth it!

They're on sale there where you can get two 20 oz bottles for $3 when you use your ExtraCare card, which I think everyone should have because who in the world shops without a rewards card these days? And while you're at it you can grab a few things to make a quick get together with your friends more enjoyable like quick meals and/or something to read if you're reading to the beach or plan on relaxing in the backyard like I did.

When it comes to planning a super relaxing day there are only a few things needed: Sun, seating area, and a breeze! As a New Yorker I appreciate the outdoors so much and revel in having a nice relaxing time to just chill and kick back. Of course, added to this is a fun and yummy snack.
Make sure you head on over to CVS to grab some yummy carbonated drinks for your summer fun as well as visiting the Coca-Cola site for summer fun inspiration. So tell me, how do you plan on making awesome summer memories this summer?
