Challenge #99 week of 22nd July 2013

ETA: Whimsical Musings prompt #100 will be posting week commencing 19th August 2013. Things are taking a little longer than planned to organise! Hope to see you back here next Monday!

Happy Monday everyone.

First of all, a little announcement.  See that number at the top, in the subject line? You know that #99? Well, what does that mean?

.... YES! It means that our next prompt will be a full

And you know me well enough to know that I intend to celebrate!

I want to really shout from the rooftops that we have 100 fabulous, inspiring prompts to share with you all and that this marks almost 2 years of Whimsical Musings!

So, I'm going to take a short break after this prompt in order to get everything straight and organised for a fun WEEK of inspiration and a surprise or two that may or may not include a giveaway. And I know how much you all love surprises... I mean giveaways!

That means that prompt #100 will be scheduled for the week commencing August 12th so you better mark that on your calendar with a big exclamation mark.

But in the meantime, here is our prompt for this week.

It's hot round here. Now it may not be unusual for it to be hot where you are, but here in (relatively) northern Europe, a heatwave is something to get excited about. Or in my case, annoyed with after the first day and a half! I hate being too hot. It makes me grumpy. And it's been hot round here for days and days and days. It feels like forever but of course, it's only been a couple of weeks :-)

Now, we've had prompts about ice-cream, summer memories, beaches, seasonal food. What's left?

Summer drinks.

I'm sat here with a cold, cold glass of Schweppes Bitter Lemon and it's so refreshing. I might even break out an ice cold beer later. And hopefully before R departs for even hotter climes on his monthly trip out East, I'm hoping for a cocktail or two to keep me going. Over the years, I've done a few layouts featuring "the cocktail" and that might be the direction I take. Or maybe good old German beer. Or just a refreshing glass of water.

Of course now I want to find one I can only find this layout! It's old but you get the idea.

Wimbledon Martinis

Maybe you want to take the colour scheme from a drink or label from a bottle. Maybe you want to talk about your drinking habits or your drink of choice. What about taking inspiration from a drink advert or the flavours or traditions? There is a myriad of ways to take this and I'd LOVE to see where you go with it.

Strawberry Bowle (Strawberry beer)

My favourite Weizen beer.
And if this prompt seems a little beer heavy, I live in Germany - the land of the best beer in the world so it can only be expected!

Go on, treat us to some creative inspiration from your very own summer drink fave.
