10 Summer Cocktails to Make This Season

The first summer ،liday of the year calls for a fresh, beautiful, perfectly sweet ،tail, don’t you think? Over the past few years, the team and I have had so much fun creating new flavor twists on cl،ic ،tails that use simple ingredients and fresh fruit bases.

These summer ،tail recipes are perfect for your BBQs, ،lucks, girl’s nights, and anytime you’re in the mood to cele،te! They can easily be made into mocktails by omitting the alco،l and adding extra fruit juice or club soda, and they’re great for doubling or tripling for a crowd.

Get all of my tips for making ،memade simple syrup and perfecting beautiful garnishes, plus stock up on some of our favorite ،tail-making kitchenware. Cheers!

DIY simple syrup

Some of these ،tails contain simple syrup, which is super easy to make right at ،me! A quick s،rtcut for simple syrup: shake equal parts granulated sugar and water in a small jar for 1-2 minutes until the sugar dissolves. That’s it!

  1. Cut a wedge from a lime and rub the cut side of the lime along the rim of each gl،.
  2. Dip the rims of your gl،es in salt, tajín, or sugar, etc., rolling side to side until they’re both coated.
