Summer is finally here and that means gimme all the sweet fruity cocktails! Here are a few of my favorite Summer recipes that are pool and lake day approved all thanks to Pinterest!

Blood Orange Mojito

Mojitos are one of my favorites and this cocktail takes less than 5 minutes to make!

What you need:

Mint leaves

2 blood oranges

Rum

Simple Syrup

Lime Juice

Sparkling water

Let’s get to making:

muddle the mint and lime juice together in a glass. Add in the rum, blood orange juice, and simple syrup. I also added in sparkling water and garnished with an orange wedge, and bingo you’re ready to head to the pool with this tasty drink!

 

Watermelon Moscow Mule

Mules are so fun to make and the flavors are endless! And lets be real we all drink it for the fancy cup! haha

What you need:

Watermelon juice

Lime juice

Citrus vodka

Bubbly ginger beer

Let’s get to making:

Place watermelon chunks into blender and puree until smooth. Strain the watermelon to keep the juice handy. Then place 1/4 cup of watermelon juice, vodka, and lime juice into an ice filled shaker. Cover and shake to combine. Strain cocktail into a copper mug. Top with ginger beer and garnish with watermelon wedge and mint leaves.
