I love a delicious and refreshing cocktail during the summer! And I love creating cocktail recipes to share with you. In this edition of My Favorite Five, I’m sharing my favorite summer cocktails! Including margarita, sangrias, and more!  Click the Cocktail name to be taken to the original post with the recipe.

1) Coconut Margarita

I’ve shared this margarita recipe in multiple blog posts, on Instagram, and Instagram Stories. I love it that much! During a trip in Cabo, a friend ordered this drink and after trying it, I knew I needed to recreate it! This drink is perfect for summer…sweet, cool, creamy, and delicious! Read my post on Cabo San Lucas here. You might also like my Serrano Margarita or Citrus Margarita recipes.

Vodka Mojito, Summer Cocktails

2) Vodka Mojito

I served this vodka mojito at a garden party I hosted a few months ago and it was a huge hit! A mojito is one of my favorite warm-weather drinks. This drink is minty, tart, and refreshing! For this recipe, I used BLK EYE Vodka. It’s a high quality, non-GMO, farm to bottle vodka with 100% Texas roots!  I shared a Mix Your Own Mojito Bar last week, so be sure to check out the fun flavors there, too.

Summer Cocktails

3) French Rosé Champagne Sangria

Sangria is another summer drink favorite! This recipe was inspired by the famous sangria at The Ivy in LA. It’s light and not too sweet. It’s perfect for summer nights with friends or a specialty drink at parties! I’ve also done recipes for White Peach Basil Sangria and Strawberry Sangria that you might enjoy!

Summer Cocktails, Organic Basil Fizz

4) Organic Basil Fizz

As you can probably tell, I like to draw inspiration from other drink recipes and recreate them as my own! This recipe was inspired by a drink I had while we were in the Maldives for our 20th Anniversary. You can read about that trip here. This cocktail is very fresh and light for summer!

Summer Cocktails, Raspberry Frosé

5) Raspberry Frosé

Of course, I had to include some frosé! Who doesn’t love a cold glass of frosé on a hot summer day!? This quick cocktail recipe is the perfect amount of sweet, tart and cold.  So refreshing and perfect for a hot June day! If you want to make something for the kiddos, this Raspberry Lemonade is delicious!
