Summer Cocktails

Updated: Jul 25, 2018

Summertime is my favorite season. Whether you are grilling in your backyard, throwing a summer gathering with friends or chilling in the sun there’s nothing better than a summer themed cocktail.  And because I’m a busy working mom, I don’t always have a lot of time to make the fancy cocktails I have pinned on Pinterest. So these 2 simple cocktail recipes are my go-to because they are refreshing simple and pretty!

Grapefruit Vodka Spritzer

The tonic adds the spritz while the grapefruit juice gives it the citrusy flavor. It is both refreshing and dangerously delicious.


  • 1 large chilled grapefruit, juiced

  • 1 can soda water (I prefer La Croix Sparkling Water-Grapefruit)

  • 3 ounces vodka (I prefer Ketel One Botanical Grapefruit & Rose)

  • Grapefruit quarter wheels for garnish

Strawberry Mint Lemonade Bubbly

I like to call this summer in a glass. Fresh strawberries are muddled with mint, then mixed with lemonade and the oh so bubbly Prosecco.


  • ½ cup fresh strawberries

  • 1 cup fresh mint leaves (spare a few for garnish)

  • ½ cup lemonade

  • 3 ounces Prosecco
