On the Road to Beachier Times

by Dixie Haag | Posted on Saturday, February 20th, 2021

Here in Texas we just survived the #Snowpocalypse2021, and we are ready for some warmer weather! Watching the O’Reilly Auto Parts 253 at Daytona should do the trick to get us on the road to beachier times.  We will be pretending to be beachside in Daytona in the summer with some beach worthy drinks as we watch the NASCAR drivers hit the road course.  Nothing tastes more like the beach than some seriously fruity drinks, so we will be sipping up a variety of fun recipes. Feel free to join us in our escape to the beach, even if it is only in our minds and taste buds!

To feel like you’re really there, virtually visit the beach or the road course or both:
