My Favorite Summer Cocktails
Summer begins vacations, moments in the hot outdoors, and parties that make our minds turn to refreshing cocktails. I'm going to share my favorite summer ones -
My all-time favorite summer drink is the mojito because I adore lime and mint and it is so fresh and clean and easy to drink.
I like the recipe Bicardi uses -
2 parts Bicardi rum
4 lime wedges
12 fresh mint leaves
2 tsp extra fine sugar
1 part club soda
sprig of fresh mint for decoration
Squeeze limes wedges into glass and add the skins. Add sugar and press them together. Bruise mint leaves in your palms to release oils, rub them on the rim of the glass and drop them into the glass. Fill glass halfway with ice. Add the rum and stir. Top with crushed ice, a sprig of mint and club soda.
Put pink lemonade into a pitcher. Add Malibu Coconut rum and Amaretto. You can add a scoop of sherbert on top if you want.
Dirty Pirate Popsicles
I absolutely love pureeing fresh summer fruits like pineapple, watermelon, berries, and make popsicles with added liquor like coconut rum, but my very favorite popsicle cocktail is the Dirty Pirate.
Mix 2 parts Coke, 1 part rum and 1 part Kahlua. Put in popsicle forms and you are ready to have your drink in frozen form.
