Recipes Series: Summer

We are in the midst of the dogs days of summer, and refreshing recipes that are simple are the key to beating the heat yet soaking up all the goodness of summer. 

Lunds & Byerlys Summer Recipes

Lunds & Byerlys has a wide-range of recipes for barbecues, picnics, festive desserts and for nights you just don't want to turn on the stove, there is always a fresh salad bar or pasta salad. 

Fro-groni from Sur La Table

We love this recipe from Sur La Table that is a take on the popular Frosé. It's a take on the classic Negroni and gives it a slushy feel. You can top with Prosecco too for a little more pizzazz. Pick up the ingredients at Edina Liquor just steps away from Lunds & Byerly's at 50th & France. 

Sur La Table also carries pretty much everything you for your kitchen too! We are especially loving their summer pineapple-themed glassware.

Fro-groni Recipe via Sur La Table: 

Serves: Makes 2 cocktails


  • 3 ounces gin
  • 3 ounces Campari
  • 3 ounces sweet vermouth
  • 3 ounces fresh orange juice
  • 2 half wheels of orange, for garnish
  • Prosecco, for topping (optional)


Negronis—a boozy blend of gin, Campari and sweet vermouth—have become one of our favorite classic drinks. But when summer rolls around, the all-alcohol mixture becomes too heavy for the hot days, so we end up concocting a slushy, frozen version. Feeling celebratory? Top your glass with a pour of Prosecco post blending. 

In a blender, combine the gin, Campari, vermouth and orange juice. Fill with ice and blend on high until smooth. 

Pour into frosted rocks glasses, garnish with orange wheels and, if you’d like, a pour of Prosecco. Serve immediately.

Fashion Series: Title Nine

Summer is a busy time that’s full of working, household chores, and driving the kids to all of their summer activities or sports. With an on-the-go lifestyle, sometimes it’s hard to be prepared after a quick workout. Luckily, Title Nine has your apparel covered for during and after a summer workout.

Title Nine is named after the civil rights law that requires gender equality and specializes in women’s athletic clothing after founder, Missy Park, noticed a lack in gear for women in 1989. Today, Title Nine has grown and carries a variety of women’s products meant for multiple activities, including camping, swimming and working out.

We knew we had to share their products, since they are functional for busy schedules, and fashionable with bright colors that scream summer. To start, they have incredible pants and tank tops meant for you to sweat in. Add a headband and water bottle, and you are ready to hit your yoga mat. Once you’re done, throw on a Title Nine dress. With the buttery soft Buttah™ fabric you can cool off, get going with your busy day, or lounge around and enjoy a drink.

This summer, Title Nine is offering wonderful coupons at Yoga by the Fountain. With $9 off a brand new bra or 15% off your entire purchase, you can definitely gear up for the summer!
