Local Mom Scoop hosted Garlic & Zest to share her 3 Hot Summer Cocktails To Cool Off With This Summer.
It’s blazing hot this summer in South Florida. I mean BLAZING!!
With over ninety degree days and the heat index at 105 in Boca Raton, I really have been craving something refreshing or something fruity to drink this summer.
What to make when a glass of Rose’ just won’t do?
That’s when I got together with my friend Lisa from Garlic & Zest who has a website that features doable recipes. She already had some wonderful light summer cocktail recipes to share with me. These soon to be classic summer cocktails were created on my Facebook Live Show LIVE FROM THE KITCHEN. You can Watch The Replay.
These summer cocktails are perfect for hosting friends, a pool party or watching 4th of July fireworks.
But if you don’t have time right now. Here are the 3 cocktails below along with links to the recipes. Enjoy!
1. French 75 – Sophisticated Summer Sipper
We started the show making this delightful and refreshing cocktail the French 75 as we refer to as a sophisticated summer sipper.
This is the perfect drink if you are hosting a few friends over for a steak and lobster night or happy hour by the pool. It features gin, simple syrup, lemon juice, and prosecco.
For the show, Garlic & Zest used Prosecco instead of champagne which is really my favorite kind of bubbly. Watch the video on how to properly open a bottle of prosecco or champagne. 16:54
2. Tropical Planter’s Punch Cocktail – A Fruity Patio Cocktail
If you’re looking for summer cocktails with rum, then you’ll feel like you’re in the islands with this summer cocktail.
Even if you can’t be on summer vacation, you can at least feel like it with this Planter’s Punch Cocktail recipe is the perfect pool party pleaser.
It features dark rum, guava necter, simple syrup and more.
I would make this in a picther and have ready for my guests.
3. Icy Mango Chiller – The Perfect Pool Cocktail
If you have a mango tree in your backyard, then this is the perfect way to use them in a summer recipe. Make it by blending ice, fresh mango, and lime juice. Make it boozy or not by adding your favorite rum or vodka.
The Mango Chiller was so simple to make and it’s perfect as a cocktail or as a summer non-alcoholic drink. Can you say mocktails for the kids?
