Sip Rachel Zoe's Favorite Summer Drinks All Season Long

When dreaming up our Summer 2024 Curation, Rachel Zoe wanted to include something we’ve never put in previous boxes: A reusable cup. Why? In case you didn’t know, our CURATEUR-in-Chief is the queen of beverages. From her morning smoothie to Tanqueray nightcap, you’re likely to find her with some kind of drink in hand.

So when it came time to design our custom tumbler, something basic just wouldn’t do. Rachel wants all her moments to be as glamorous as possible—and she wants the same for you! That’s why she and Rachel Miriam made sure to create a tumbler you’ll be proud to tote around town when you’re sipping iced coffee, when you’re hydrating at the beach, or anywhere else you’re headed this summer and beyond. It’s gold, it’s glitzy, and it’s even a little inspirational! Rachel specifically chose the mantra “Dream Big” to be emblazoned on the cup to motivate you throughout the day and keep you reaching for your goals.

The Dream Big Tumbler is just one of the adventure essentials Rachel selected for our Summer Curation. The complete box also includes 4 other chic travel must-haves that will help you navigate all your plans this season in style. Not signed up for yours yet? Head here to get your hands on one before it’s too late!

Once you’re signed up you may need a few ideas for fun summer drinks to put in your own Dream Big tumbler, so we asked Rachel to share how she’s filling up hers this season. Keep reading to learn about her favorite summer beverages for morning, noon, and night—plus how to make them yourself!

Johnnie Brown Smoothie

“My kids and I are obsessed with smoothies. Our favorite is one we call the Johnnie Brown. It’s made with banana, peanut butter, vanilla almond milk, vanilla protein powder, honey, and ice. Sometimes I give myself an added nutritional boost by adding in these superfood blends that you can shop on our site!”


The Rachel Palmer

“I am a huge fan of tea—all kinds! But in the summer I have my favorite recipe down to a science. I start with iced black tea and add a splash of lemonade, a lemon wedge, and a sprig of mint for an extra refreshing flavor and just the slightest bit of sweetness.”

Tanqueray & Soda

“When it comes to summer cocktails, my go-to is always a Tanqueray and soda. I make mine a little extra fancy with a splash of lime juice and some fresh mint. I can see myself adding this to my Dream Big tumbler for summer pool parties!”
