Mexican Shrimp Cocktail, otherwise known as Cóctel de Camarónes, doesn’t resemble an American shrimp cocktail at all. This version is almost like a “salad in a glass!” It’s chock full of crunchy vegetables and shrimp in a spicy, tangy tomato sauce.
Spicy Watermelon Margaritas are the perfect cocktail to sip on a hot day! Simple, fresh ingredients with a kick of heat from the jalapeño slices. Enjoy them with your favorite tacos or chips and salsa!
Bourbon Smash cocktails are some of my favorite summers cocktails. I have experimented with a wide variety of fruits and berries when making Bourbon Smash recipes. One of my all-time favorites is the Peach Bourbon Smash! Sweet, cool, and refreshing, it’s easy to drink and easy to make. I use peaches in this cocktail, but all stone fruits are excellent with bourbon. Apricots, plums, and nectarines have all been amazing as substitutes for this Bourbon smash, and I mix it up quite a bit. I usually just go by what looks best when selecting the fruits.
The Tequila Sunrise cocktail, with its bright striations of color, evokes a summer sunrise. This classic drink has only three ingredients—tequila, grenadine and orange juice—and is served unmixed to preserve the color of each layer.
A perfect summery drink that combines sweet, juicy mangoes, warming ginger, a hint of spice and vegetal notes from green jalapeño, refreshing lime-lemon soda and a crisp lager.
Mint Strawberry Moscow Mule is the perfect summer cocktail. Made with vodka and ginger beer, its super easy and our go to drink these days!
Say hello to my little friend, The Godfather Cocktail. Certain booze lends themselves to certain situations. I drink rum when I want to celebrate, wine when I want to relax, and whiskey (The Godfather) when I’ve packed and moved my apartment in less than a week and my entire body hurts.
Earthy, funky, zesty and full of texture– that’s what you can expect with this blackberry tequila spritzer. Sure, it looks like a total girly fruit bomb. What can I say, my husband’s the mixologist and he gravitates towards pink drinks.
Just kidding. But I am in Maine, and it is GLORIOUS. The air smells like salt water and pine trees, and I’m just sitting here drinking fresh coffee, looking out at the ocean, and generally feeling rather princess-like.
Tired of the straight-up margarita? This strawberry basil margarita is a fun twist on the classic. It’s a sweet, tart and refreshing cocktail, perfect for summer outdoor sipping!
