A cocktail by the pool is the epitome of ‘living your best life’ this Summer. These drinks are a few of my favorites that I will be making all Summer long to cool down in this heat, they are 5 easy Summer cocktails. They are all super refreshing and pretty simple to make. These classic Summer drink recipes are ideal for the Florida heat and are the 5 best Summer cocktails for 2020.
These drinks are going to range from your classic Margarita to my favorite European Hugo! Remember that during the Summer, happy hour starts when ever you want it to, so bring that shaker and tequila out because it’s time to make some drinks!
To start off, let’s keep it simple and begin with the Aperol spritz.
• 1 1/2 oz. Aperol
• 4 oz. prosecco or champagne
• 1-2 orange slices for garnish (optional, I used blood orange)
Fill your wine glass halfway with ice. Add the orange slice if you’d like, then the Aperol and prosecco. Top it with another orange slice as a garnish.
FROZEN PEACH BELLINI
- 3 cup fresh or frozen peaches
- 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 cup ice cubes
- 3 cups prosecco or champagne
Add the ice, peaches, and sugar into a blender. Blend until smooth and add the prosecco or champagne & finish blending.
- Elderflower Syrup
Fill wine glass halfway with ice. Muddle mint or add to the bottom of the glass, then add lime. Add a small amount of elderflower syrup and finish it off with prosecco. Briefly stir to combine all of the ingredients and get the syrup off the bottom of the glass.
- Lemon sorbet
- Coconut vodka
- Titos vodka
Combine two scoops of lemon sorbet with 1 1/2 oz. of coconut vodka, ice, 1/2 oz. of vodka. Blend this all together and voila.
- Lime juice
- Margarita mix
Prep your glasses by grabbing a wedge of lime and putting it all around the rim of the glass, then place it face down on a plate of salt. Then combine 3 oz. of margarita mix, 2 oz. of tequila, and ice in a shaker. Garnish with lime slices or wedges.
That is all of my favorite Summer drinks for 2020. If you’re looking for some more Summer essentials, check out my last blog post on it. Don’t forget to let me know which is your favorite and the one you’re going to make first!
