With summertime in full swing, we love entertaining in our new backyard. We moved into a new house with a big yard and thought it would be perfect to host a get-together. Realizing that the heat might make our guests unhappy, we opted to take the party over to grandma and grandpa’s house with the big swimming pool! One of the best ways to make your summer party a hit is to serve the best K cup flavors, such as iced tea and other low calorie drinks. Refreshing on a hot summer day in lieu of traditional coffee, your Brew Over Ice drinks can be the perfect addition to poolside fun! #BrewOverIce #BrewItUp #CollectiveBias
The first step to any party-planning is to head to Walmart. With everything you need to throw the perfect party – from food to drinks to the perfect party fare, Walmart is your one-stop shop for everything you need.
Finding the K-cups in Walmart is pretty simple. Look for the coffee/tea aisle and your selections are right there! I love that they have an entire center post just for them! The Brew Over Ice cups can be found mingled within.
Let’s not forget the party aisle! These plastic Mason Jar tumblers have me swooning and in a variety colors, they make any party a hit! Add in the fact that they are plastic and less likely to break makes them the perfect option!
After you’ve bought your party essentials, it’s time to test out the brewing! Brewing over ice is pretty simple, all you need is a mug, your k cup, your Keurig brewer and a plastic tumbler filled with ice! For best brewing, brew your favorite and newfound Brew Over Ice flavors on the 6oz (small) or the 8oz (medium) setting.
Here’s a simple how-to video for a quick visual on how to get your drink ready to go!
To prepare for my guests, I put together a simple tray and lined it with some coordinating scrapbook paper. I purchased plastic tumblers from Walmart and displayed the Brew Over Ice K Cups including the Vitamin Burst Acai Berry Flavor – my personal favorite. There is such a large selection of Brew Over Ice cups that your Keurig is no longer limited to Fall and Winter times when the weather is cooler. I also thought the tumblers made the perfect guest favor for the day.
The bright colors make the party festive and fun. I love striped straws and the fact that these cups are reusable make it even better. Fill a bucket of ice and get ready to go! I kept the Keurig inside and would just act as hostess, refreshing drinks as necessary so that guests could enjoy the party!
We had such a great time that I even shared with a picnic I attended as well. Guests had a great time enjoying larger pitchers of previously brewed Brew Over Ice cups!
The Brew Over Ice K Cups really help bring your party to the next level! Whether it’s a picnic, family gathering or graduation soiree, using the Keurig allows your guests to enjoy a variety of beverages without wasting huge pitchers of pre-made drinks!
As if the versatility and flavors weren’t enough to win you over, did you know Keurig has it’s own recycling program for use with K-Cups? The Grounds To Grow program offers a way for K-Cup users to return used cups for processing that separates grounds for compost and plastics for re-use.
What’s your favorite drink to toast the summer? Is it best served over ice?

I always want to brew into pitchers, but the Keurig only has so much of a clearance, you may be onto something there! #Client
