Treat Yourself To One Of These Tasty Summer Cocktails

I’m not sure I’ve ever had Strawberry Gin Smash, but the name sounds fun, and it sounds pretty tasty! I recently found out that I don’t hate gin and that I’d actually only ever had crappy gin, so I’ll have to give this a go! (via The Kitchn)

Shark Week or not, I’m pretty sure I want to try this Shark Bite cocktail. I’m also always impressed by beverages that seem to have a bit of a layered effect. It just looks pretty! (via The Shabby Creek Cottage)

When I was growing up, I had a grapefruit every single morning with my breakfast. I loved the cute little grapefruit spoons my mom had and to this day they might just be my favourite fruit! And I can’t wait to try this Grapefruit Salty Dog! (via The Rookie Cookie)

I really love coconut flavoured things, so this Skinny Coconut Margarita might just to happen at some point this week. Yum! (via With Salt & Wit)

I shared this recipe on my blog a little while ago when I was testing out a new rum from Quebec and it blew my mind. You’ve got to give the Dark ‘N’ Stormy a taste! (via So Fawned Lifestyle)

There’s something rather satisfying about whole fruit in your cocktail. ThisRaspberry Limoncello Prosecco calls for frozen raspberries which’ll also keep you beverage nice and cold! (via Damn Delicious)

I’m not usually a bourbon girl, but this Indian Summer Cocktail combination (featuring apricot jam and sage) has my interest piqued. (via A Spicy Perspective)
