This past Monday was the first day of Summer, and what better way to welcome in the warm season than with some delicious cocktails. We love experimenting and trying different drink recipes, especially this time of year.
We have rounded up a few of our favorites below. What is your drink of choice in the summer? We would love to hear any and all of your best recipes.
- Gin, Basil & Cucumber: Basil is one of the most delicious and surprising addition to a cocktail. People are always so surprised to try it and every time they rave about how good it is! Plus, cucumber is always a refreshing base. BS’ in the Kitchen has an amazing recipe.
- Grilled Pineapple Margarita: It’s no surprise we love margaritas, but summer just calls for an extra twist on this classic. If you’re having a barbecue, the grilled pineapple margarita is a delicious version of a fun, summery favorite. Check out The Brewer and the Baker for a great recipe.
- Blood Orange Sangria: Enough said. This drink is delish, and can easily be adjusted based on whatever is in your fringe. How Sweet Eats has a great recipe that user blood oranges, strawberries, raspberries and apples. You can easily switch out the berries for whatever is in your friend and oranges can be easily switched out for apples.
Hope you’re able to try out one of these drinks this evening. Come on, it’s almost the weekend, isn’t it?
