Caroline Savard (Wooloo) offers a tutorial for taking your summer drinks to the next level. It’s the perfect activity to add a little “je ne sais quoi” on hot summer days and impress your kids and their friends!

How to create the refreshing station


*You can also use slices of watermelon or cantaloupe.


  • 3 large Mason jars
  • Highball serving glasses
  • Cardboard straws
  • Wooden skewers
  • Serving tray
  • A large container to hold ice cubes and keep juices cool

For the fruit skewers (optional)

  • Fruit of your choice: mango, blueberry, watermelon or cantaloupe
  • Cutting board
  • Letter-shaped cutters

Possible small additions

Here are some other ideas to enhance your refreshing station:

  • Ice cubes in different shapes
  • Ice cubes made with Rougemont juice
  • Candies
  • Decorative umbrellas

How to set up the station

  1. Fill the large ice cube tray outside to keep the juices cool.
  2. Transfer juice to Mason jars.
  3. Cut 1 cm-thick slices (mango, watermelon or cantaloupe) and place in a serving bowl.
  4. Place blueberries in another small bowl.
  5. Bring the juice, fruits and remaining accessories to your station.

A “mermaid” mocktail to impress the crowd

The idea behind the “mermaid” mocktail is to create a gradation of color in the glass. All you need to do is add a colorful drink to the apple and pineapple juice base, but beware of mixing colors! We suggest you use Allen’s Fruit Punch to achieve a beautiful result.

Finally, why not create little fruit skewers as decoration: no one will lose their pretty glass among the guests!

Preparation – Mermaid Mocktail

  1. Fill glass halfway with ice.
  2. Pour in ½ cup McIntosh apple juice.
  3. Slowly add ¼ cup pineapple juice.
  4. Finally, add ¼ cup Allen’s Fruit Punch and watch the magic happen.

Preparation – Fruit skewers that show your guests’ names

  1. Place the fruit slices on the board and let the children cut out the letters of their first name using the cutters.
  2. Assemble the letters on a wooden skewer, alternating with the blueberries.
  3. Place on your glass.

Cheers and enjoy your summer!
