Our Fave Refreshing Summer CocktailsAugust 1, 2023
It’s hot out there, ladies. Water’s great, and we’re loving seltzer, but sometimes those just won’t do. To enjoy your summer days in true style, a special drink is in order. Here are the five drinks we love to sip on most in the summertime.
Classic Bloody Mary
We’re starting off simple, because summer isn’t complete without a few afternoon Bloody Mary’s! Begin with a recipe of vodka, tomato juice, horseradish, Tabasco, and Worcestershire, then top it off with a stick of celery for that photo-ready look.
There are so many delicious twists on margaritas, but the most refreshing has gotta be watermelon with a lil’ fire. It’s super simple to get this one right: just combine your favorite tequila and lime juice with blended watermelon, then mix in some chili lime spice for extra pizazz.
Icy Mint Mojito
With just five easy-to-get ingredients – white rum, sugar, lime juice, soda water, and crushed mint – this is an easy one to make in a pitcher for girl’s night. If you’re feeling fancy, add a dash of blue curaçao to get that electric blue look.
If you’re craving a sweet treat, look no further. A classic piña colada starts with both white and dark rum, pineapple juice, and coconut milk. An even better piña colada is topped with whipped coconut cream for extra vacation indulgence. You deserve it!
This cocktail typically features tequila, but for a more adult version, use mezcal. Combine with lime juice and grapefruit soda, then salt the rim. To finish with flair, add a smoked twig of rosemary for garnish. This fire-fresh cocktail is a real end-of-summer treat.
