Perfect for anyone, any reason, any time. What we love most about this idea is that your drink options are basically limitless. Adults-only? Grab a 1.75 liter of pre-mix Captain Morgan Tropical Punch. Sharing with the kids? Take your pick of lemonades or juices.

Desserts That Define Summer

Crisps, crumbles, cobblers, and more — summertime is sweetest with produce packed treats! Get the download (and the definition!) of these classic desserts below.

Blackberry-Peach Crisp

Word: Crisp | [ krisp ]

A streusel-like mixture of flour, sugar, butter and (most importantly) oats or nuts. It’s the crisping of the oats that lends this dessert its name.

Peach and Raspberry Cobbler

Word: Cobbler | [ kob-ler ]

At its simplest, a cobbler is fruit baked beneath sweet biscuits. Sometimes they’re neat, sometimes they’re artful shapes of fruity-biscuity goodness. Regardless, they’re always delicious.

Strawberry Crumble with Basil

World: Crumble | [ kruhm-buhl ]

Nearly a crisp, but not — this treat forgoes the oats! Sweeter than its cousin, the crisp, crumble is just as versatile.

Here’s the Scoop

The hottest season of the year is no match for a cool ice cream treat! From pints to pops, Cub is the place to go for chilly treats of all shapes and sizes.

Pick Your Favorite Flavor

Muffin Tin Mixer

There’s clever (hello, muffin tin meals) and then there’s genius: introducing, perfectly portioned build-your-own sundae bar muffin tins. They’re adorable, practical, and a breeze to pull together. Plus, they’re guaranteed to impress everyone you serve one to. Can you say host with the most? We recommend four flavors of ice cream, four sauces, and four toppings for maximum mix-and-match potential. But of course, anything goes. There’s no wrong answer when it comes to ice cream!

More Berries? No Problem.

You know that point in summer where you can’t stop buying fresh strawberries and inevitably end up with more than you know what to do with? This two-in-one recipe puts them to brilliant use. We doubt you’ll have any trouble savoring every last one.
