  • END-OF-SUMMER BUCKET LIST

    It’s hard to believe summer is coming to an end. Hopefully, you’ve been soaking up the sun all season long, but if you’re still looking for ways to make the most of your summer before it ends, check out our end-of-summer bucket list below.

    • Head to the beach one last time (a river or lake trip also works!)
    • Treat yourself to ice cream and splurge for that extra scoop
    • Take a mini-road trip with your besties
    • Get all your gals together for brunch
    • Visit a farmer’s market and buy your favorite fruit
    • Capture the perfect Instagram pic on a giant pool float
    • Watch the sunset with a glass of rosé in hand
    • Get one last summer pedi in the brightest summer shade you can find
    • Spend an afternoon outdoors with a great book
    • Take a trip to the zoo
    • Go on a Segway tour
    • DIY your own flower crown
    • Buy matching sunglasses for you and your bestie
    • Have a picnic with all of your favorite foods
    • Binge-watch that show on Netflix you’ve been trying to catch up on
    • Try making that Pinterest recipe you’ve been too scared to attempt

    Which of these do you still need to check off your list before summer ends?

  • Get the scoop on Nekter Skoops

    Written by  on  in Featured Products, Happy & Healthy

    Got a sweet tooth? Us too. In fact, we’d scream for ice cream just about every day (twice on Mondays) if it weren’t for all that pesky cream…and corn syrup…and just generally uncool ingredients. So what’s an ice cream craver to do? Get the Skoop, that’s what!

    The skinny on these skoops: they’re free from dairy, soy, gluten, refined sugar, preservatives and artificial flavors – and even better, it’s so smooth and creamy, you’d swear it was your Nonna’s homemade gelato. Don’t have a Nonna? We’ll be your Nonna.

    We’d call it an indulgence, but with clean ingredients like cashew milk, honey, sea salt, Tahitian and bourbon vanilla, coconut sugar, and pure cocoa, we don’t think we could get away with it. Made in small batches in-store to ensure that “fresh factor,” this is one sweet treat that both die-hard foodies and devoted vegans can enjoy, no Nonna required.

    But wait, we can top that! No seriously, we’ve got toppings. Finish those Skoops with coconut flakes, vegan chocolate chips, chocolate drizzle, strawberries, blueberries, cacao nibs, gluten-free granola and more!

    Skoop is currently available at over 60 Nékter locations – to find the nearest Skoop location near you, visit locations.nekterjuicebar.com!

  • Summer Party Ideas!

    Some of the best parties and get togethers we’ve been to have been during the summer months so if you’re in search of a great summer party idea, keep reading. This isn’t our first rodeo people, so trust us when we say we know how to throw a great summer bash!

    BACKYARD MOVIE NIGHT

    By now you’ve been to or at least have heard of movie nights in the park, at the beach, and Cinespia at the famous Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Bringing all the fun picnic food (and Nekter on the Rocks cocktail mixers) with blankets, oversized pillows and having a blast with friends is one of our favorite summer pastimes. We thought, why not step it up a notch and personalize it even more with hosting our very own backyard movie night? It’s much simpler than you’d think. Renting a movie screen and projector is actually pretty easy. There are the big inflatable screens or the projectors that stand up right; whichever you prefer. All you need is an open area in your backyard and an extension cord to plug in the projector and speaker. This could be a great idea for a kid’s birthday party, for a family night, or an evening with friends. Lay out blankets, pillows and make easy finger foods like cheese + charcuterie platters, veggies dishes, and don’t forget the popcorn.

    BEACH DAY WITH GIANT GAMES

    Jenga, Connect Four, Dominoes… yes the games you used to play as kids are now available in JUMBO sizes for your pleasure. Add in Corn Hole and Bocce Ball and you’re set for an incredibly competitive and fun day in the sand. I mean, this might be the most exciting thing that has happened to our beach days this past year. There is a caveat though, these games can be a little pricey and heavy to carry but have no fear, if you’re not up for lugging these across the sand you can rent them. We really like Joymode for these jumbo game rentals. All you need is good food, good drinks, and great friends and family by your side.

    BARS, BARS, BARS

    In this case, we actually don’t mean an alcoholic bar. We’re talking about food bars! If you’re hosting a party in your backyard or poolside this is a great idea. Being a host/hostess, you know how time consuming it is to throw a party. You’re likely to be in the kitchen most of the event prepping for the snacks, main course, dessert, drinks. You want to be in on all the festivities too yet still feel like you’re a great host, right? Our answer, prep ahead of time so you can avoid being stuck “behind the bar” and plan to have food bars. Some of the best food bars we’ve had are:

    • Burger Bars
    • Taco Bars
    • Salsa & Guacamole Bar
    • S’Mores Bars
