Nothing hits the spot quite like an icy cocktail. Add in some refreshing fruit, and you’ve got a drink perfect for even the most grueling of summer days. Whether you’re into vodka, rum or tequila, we’ve got you covered. Best of all, we have included ingredients made by companies that treat their workers with respect.
Adding a bunch of mixed berries is an easy way to upgrade the classic mojito. All you need are blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, Bacardi Raspberry Rum, and a few other ingredients.. The berries and mint will instantly give you a refreshed feeling that will make your summer days more enjoyable.
This twist on a timeless cocktail is perfect for rosé fans. Instead of using red wine in your sangria, pour Chateau St. Michelle Syrah Rosé with E&J VS Brandy and Chambord Raspberry Liqueur into the mix with raspberries and strawberries. The Rosé Sangría is a light and cute drink with pink tones perfect for all occasions.
Coconut Gin and Tonic
It’s dangerous to mess with a classic, but how about a twist on yet another drink that’s dear to our hearts? Just add a splash of coconut water to your Gilbey’s Gin and tonic and voila, you’ll feel like a professional mixologist!
Vodka Pink Lemonade Slushies
Who remembers enjoying a slushy from the corner store? Channel your inner kid and those feelings of yesteryear with a vodka pink lemonade slushie. Since we’re all about convenience, all you need to do is throw in ice, pink lemonade, lemon soda and Burnett’s Vodka. Just like that, you’ll reminisce on simpler times but have way more fun in the process!
Strawberry Daiquiri Jell-O Shots
Jell-O shots don’t have to mean Spring Break trips filled with regret. Attach better memories to these dollops of sweetness and fun by making strawberry daiquiri Jell-O shots in the actual fruit by freezing them and making them an edible shot glass. The process is as easy as adding Bacardi Rum and lime juice to the Jell-O mix, and then pouring it into the strawberries. You can also make booze-free ones that may taste just as good — but probably be a lot less fun.
Raspberry Limoncello Prosecco
If you’re looking for something on the classier end, Raspberry Limoncello Prosecco is the way to go. It’s sweet, bubbly, and really easy to make. Grab a pitcher and pour in fresh raspberries, mint, Caravella Limoncello, and Bivio Italia Prosecco and you’ve got yourself a good time with a simple, no-nonsense drink that’s still cute enough to Instagram.
