There's nothing better than a cool, refreshing cocktail on a hot summer day. So, be the bartender this year by whipping up some of these great summer drinks:
For a Party on the Patio - A twist on a classic, the Watermelon Mojito will be sure to impress your guests. Cool, refreshing and "skinny" - plus, it's the perfect way to showcase one of summer's favorite fruits!
When You Want to Indulge - How about a "grown-up" milkshake? This Chocolate Chip Cookie Kahlua Millkshake looks divinely decadent. We recommend serving this as a fun dessert at your next dinner party!
If You Want A Day Drink - Try some Lemony Spiked Sweet Tea with a leisurely weekend lunch. Fresh mint and lemon juice make this tea refreshing and bright, and the rum packs just the right punch.
Perfect for a Picnic - Make a batch of this delicious Cherry-Peach Sangria ahead of time, then serve over ice at your favorite picnic spot. The flavors will benefit from some time to meld together. Be inspired by Spain and serve your Sangria with some yummy tapas - the perfect picnic food!
A Virgin Version - These Mango Mock-o-ladas may not have any alcohol, but they are gorgeous, flavorful and icy cold. Perfect for your kids, your pregnant friends and yourself!
For the WOW Factor - This Citrus Rosemary Gimlet is a summer favorite for the sophisticated palate. Make the rosemary simple syrup and citrus blend ahead of time, so you can whip these up in no time once your guests arrive.
A Girls Night Delight - Skinny Margaritas all the rage these days, so why not make your own?!? The girls will be thrilled with these tasty yet figure-friendly summer drinks. Choose from a basic recipe or an amped-up cucumber version both sweetened with agave nectar.
Your fun friends,
