I love a good summer cocktail. Something refreshing, not to sweet, and full of ice on a hot summer day. Last year, while on a trip through the Mediterranean, I was introduced to my current summer favorite, The Hugo Spritz (find our recipe here). I’m still searching for my Summer 2019 favorite. Read on for 10 Summer Cocktail Recipes.
This Frozen Salty Dog has all of my favorites (gin, grapefruit, and a bit of salt!) with a refreshing, frozen twist. I can’t wait to give this one a try. Hmm…maybe this weekend?
Summer herbs are blooming everywhere so why not take advantage? This Basil Gimlet from the lovely blog Cookie + Kate would be a great use of that garden bounty!
The Aperol Spritz is EVERYWHERE right now. Why not mix it up a little and try this Aperol Grapefruit Margarita?
Of course, if you’re in the mood for a margarita, I really recommend our Chili Lime Margaritas. They’re super simple and full of fresh flavor.
Lane and I are so lucky to have the best group of colleagues/friends that share our love of food and yummy drinks. Actually, we all share a major love of bubbly stuff (prosecco is our favorite right now!) and these Boozy Popsicle Mimosas sound perfect for our next get together.
At one of our girls dinners, we served this Bourbon Tea, from Garden and Gun magazine. It’s a fantastic summer cocktail, but be warned: it packs a punch!
Love a good Moscow Mule? This Peach Basil Moscow Mule is a really fun summer twist on a classic.
Rosé has risen to the top of the summer beverage list in recent years! It’s a fun, easy summer drink. Wanna mix it up a little? This Summertime Rosé Tequila Sangria sounds perfect for a summer gathering.
Need a drink for a summer brunch or wedding shower? I think these Lychee Rosé Mimosas would be perfect.
I had some great limoncello drinks in Europe last summer and can’t wait to try this Limoncello Collins. Love the combo of gin, lemon, and mint.
