Summer is the best time to enjoy a crisp glass of something yummy and bubbly either by the pool or the patio. As someone who loves easy, simple and delicious recipes for everything, the thought of making a cocktail seemed really complicated and something best left to the professionals behind the bar. However, as bars are no longer a thing, I found myself looking for a way to make delicious drinks at home. Below are my three favorite recipes which I know you will enjoy making and have fun drinking!
Combine grapefruit juice, lime juice, and sugar in glass; stir until sugar is dissolved. Stir in mescal, add ice, and top off with club soda. Garnish with grapefruit wedge.
o ¼ cup fresh grapefruit juice
o 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
o 1 teaspoon sugar
o ¼ cup mescal or tequila
o ¼ cup club soda
My version simply requires watermelon, vodka and a blender. Cut the watermelon and blend it until liquified, stir in vodka to taste and chill in the refrigerator for a few hours to let the flavors sink in.
o Fresh watermelon
Muddle the mint, sugar and lime juice in a glass. Add rum and ice and lightly stir for the BEST and freshest summer drink!
o Fresh mint
o 2 tablespoon of lime juice
o 2 oz of white rum
o 1 tablespoon of sugar
Until next time! <3
