This Fall, I'm Drinking Pink with mike's hard lemonade #mymikesmoment

“I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for mike’s hard lemonade. I received a Circle K gift card to facilitate this review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.”

All opinions expressed in this post are my own. 

As a mom of four, I stay pretty busy. I also help take care of my 76 year old mother. Between taking kids to and from school and activities, going to appointments, and going grocery shopping and running household errands, it feels like I'm always on the go. It's sometimes hard to remember I need to stop and take a break and enjoy a little time for myself.

One simple way that I like to relax and treat myself is by sitting on the back porch and enjoying a refreshing beverage like mike’s hard lemonade. Now that the cooler autumn evenings are starting to arrive, I enjoy inviting my good friend and neighbor (who also happens to be a busy mom) over for a chat and a cocktail. Sitting on the porch and sipping our mike’s hard lemonade is a great way to unwind and catch up with the things that are going on in our lives. We both have daughters who just went away to college so having that in common gives us lots to talk about.

Mike’s Hard Lemonade Co. is currently celebrating its 15th anniversary. They are best recognized for their iconic mike’s hard lemonade that uses real lemons – the whole lemon, including both the juice and the zest – which results in a very crisp and refreshing beverage. Right now, their seasonal flavor, mike’s hard pink lemonade is on shelves and available until Octoberish. Since 2009, mike’s hard lemonade has released this seasonal pink lemonade flavor each year to support breast cancer awareness and has contributed more than one million dollars to breast cancer research. That’s definitely a product that not only tastes great but one I can feel good about buying!

Another thing that makes it easy for me to enjoy mike’s hard lemonade is that I can pick it up on one of my regular trips to my local Circle K store. I live in a fairly small town and the Circle K store is located right in the center. I literally pass by there every time I’m out. It’s where I fill up my car with gas and a quick and convenient place to run in when I need snacks or staples such as milk and bread.

So, this fall, when I need to savor a moment for myself, I’ll be “drinking pink” and supporting a great cause at the same time.

Have you tried mike's hard pink lemonade? What's your favorite flavor?
