4 Fun Ways to Enjoy the Warm Weather

  • Escape to Paradise

Winter's behind us and blue-sky days are before us, so it's time to get out there and savor the sunshine. There are hammocks to be napped in, porches to lounge on and beaches to stroll, so grab your sunscreen and enjoy that warm weather - here are four fun ideas to get you started:

1. Take a Staycation
Living in the same place for awhile can make us forget the charms of our local area. Take a day off and be a tourist in your own city or town with a staycation. Visit all those local landmarks you haven't been to in a while, take in the scenery and re-discover the fun and uniqueness of your area through a fresh perspective. After a day of exploring and sight-seeing, head back home to continue the staycation festivities. Make your favorite frozen drinks using your Margaritaville® Frozen Concoction Maker®, and then enjoy them on the patio before digging into to your favorite meal al fresco. Here's a fun frozen concoction recipe to make for your special staycation:

Lazy Days Frozen Margarita


  • 3 ounces tequila 
  • 4 ounces pineapple juice
  • 2 ounces orange juice
  • 1 ounce lime juice
  • Sugar or salt for glass rims
  • Honey for glass rims
  • Lime wedges for garnish 

Prepare margarita glasses by dipping rims in honey and then in sugar or salt. Set aside. Add ice to the ice reservoir and all remaining ingredients to your Margaritaville® Frozen Concoction Maker® glass jar. Concoct and pour into prepared glasses. Garnish with lime wedges and enjoy.

2. Spend the Day at the Beach 
The beach just has a magic way of clearing our minds and rejuvenating our spirits! Soak up this beach bliss by spending all day at the seashore. Set up your perfect base of operations for your day on the sand, complete with an oversize umbrella to block the sun, a fluffy towel to lay out on, a radio to get the party started and your favorite book for downtime. Slather on the sunscreen and then immerse yourself in the complete relaxation the ocean brings. When you get hungry, head to the boardwalk and indulge in your favorite fried seafood, then let loose and set a new record at the arcade or take in the breathtaking views from the top of the pier's Ferris wheel. 

3. Throw a Patio Party 
Warm weather is as good a reason as any to throw a party! Your patio's the perfect setting - you and your loved ones and friends can sip on some frozen concoctions and snack on tasty eats as the sun goes down - and then dance the night away! Your Margaritaville® Frozen Concoction Maker® keeps the drinks flowing so your party can go on long after sunset in true island fashion. Decorate your patio tropical-style to build the perfect space for a warm-weather bash, and hang colored lanterns and string lights to create just the right atmosphere. The most popular spot at your party will be next to your tiki bar, where your Margaritaville® Frozen Concoction Maker® will mix up an endless array of refreshing and delicious frozen drinks as the music plays. Here's a recipe to try at your patio party - it's sure to be a crowd-pleaser:

Island Breeze Piña Colada 


  • 3 ounces white rum 
  • 4 ounces pineapple juice
  • 3 ounces coconut cream 
  • 1 cup frozen mango chunks
  • 2 ounces orange juice
  • Whipped cream for topping
  • Pineapple slices for garnish 

Add ice to the ice reservoir and all remaining ingredients to your Margaritaville® Frozen Concoction Maker® glass jar. Concoct and pour into glasses. Top with swirls of whipped cream and garnish with pineapple slices; serve.

4. Go on an Indulgent Picnic
Indulge your appetite and treat yourself with a warm-weather picnic. Pack an extensive spread with all the fixings: fruit and yogurt dip, fresh baguettes, cheese and sliced deli meats, potato or pasta salad, and lots of desserts. Tote your goodies in an old-fashioned picnic basket and bring along a large blanket, then scope out a cozy spot. Spend the day enjoying the slow and simple pleasures of life - munch on your picnic spread, listen to your favorite music and lounge with your favorite book as you savor the beauty of the nature around you. 

Remember to enjoy your frozen concoctions responsibly and follow all drinking laws.
