The 6 Best Summer Cocktail Recipes To Start Your Season

Cheers to summer! Time to sit by the pool and sip your favorite cocktail. These 6 cocktails are sure to get you in the summer spirit.

Aperol Spritz

It’s easier than you think, with only 4 ingredients you can create this classic Italian cocktail that is always a crowd favorite. Just combine aperol, prosecco, club soda, and an orange slice, give it a twirl with a straw and voila! Easy, classic, and delicious.


Ranch Water

A Texan twist on the margarita. This drink is refreshing, on the healthier side, and super easy. Simply take your favorite tequila, 1 shot of lime juice, Topo Chico (chilled), and ice! It’s as easy as 1-2-3.


Frozen Espresso Martini

With the espresso martini getting so much attention this year how could we not add a summer-fyed version of it? The Frozen Espresso Martini is the same, just chiller (as if it’s frozen!) All you need is 100ml of espresso, 60 ml vodka of your choice, 60 ml of Kahlua, 1 tsp of caster sugar, and a handful of ice cubes. Blend until smooth and there you have it (under 5 minutes and it tastes like it took way more effort than it actually did to make!)


Moscow Mule

For those that love vodka a Moscow Mule is a great choice for a summer beverage (and easy too!). All you need is a lime or two, depending on how sour you want it, ginger beer, and your choice of vodka! Chill the ingredients, mix the vodka and ginger beer, then add the juice of the lime(s). Garnish with more lime and pour into a copper mule mug if you really want to stick to the Moscow Mule tradition, although a regular drinking glass will do just fine.


Fruity Greyhound

Meet your new summer favorite cocktail! A fruity twist to a classic beverage. Fill a shaker up with ice, grapefruit juice, gin, and muddled raspberries, shake and serve! Add a raspberry garnish for that extra oomph and there you have it!


Whiskey Lemonade

A spiked childhood classic. Who doesn’t love lemonade? It’s sweet, a little sour, and hydrating, mixed with whiskey and it’s more fun! We recommend making your own lemonade, here’s how: Make 2 cups of simple syrup by heating and dissolving 2 cups of sugar into 2 cups of water. Add the juice of 10 lemons, syrup. Once the lemonade is done, add in the whiskey!
