It’s summer time so it’s prime time for backyard drinking. (I know this especially well after this weekend. Moscow Mules, FTW!) So here are five cocktail recipes to keep your weekends boozy and your mornings bagel-y. You see, I was lucky enough to work with Metro Detroit Bride on this cocktail shoot. Consider them all sampled by me.
P.S. Cindy and I made a similar champagne and coulis cocktail for our picnic party last year.
Featured booze: L. Mawby Sparkling Wine
I normally can’t drink gin, but I can sip it for real when it’s mixed with watermelon juice and cucumber simple syrup. That syrup changed things for me. It’s just cucumber-y enough, ya know?
Featured booze: Two James Old Cockney Gin
This drink is super lady-like and lookin’ good in stripes. It’s a touch sweet, so add more vodka as needed.
I love the idea of a champagne sangria. I can’t wait to make more versions of this this summer! Maybe even a brunch sangria?
Featured booze: Pinot grigio + Black Star Farms Pear Brandy
I think we all know this is my favorite drink of the moment. Next up, watermelon!
Featured booze: Blackberry infused DiVine Vodka
