3 Summer-Inspired Cocktails Chosen for You!
Y’all, this summer has been an absolute scorcher. I mean the kind where your hair is always tied up, makeup becomes optional, and you’re barefoot 90% of the time. There’s just something about extreme heat that makes you want to laze around, so nothing can compare to fruit-filled chilled cocktails to quench the heat.
We’ve scoured the internet for cocktails we think embody summer and all it has to offer, to bring you these three drinks that are Wine Nook approved! Plus, all of these beverages were selected specifically to use in our fillable bags. Meaning: not sparkling and below 80-proof!
Pineapple Jalapeno Smash
Pineapple is the best fruit, and I will fight anyone who disagrees. So when we found this Pineapple Jalapeño Smash cocktail from Fork in the Kitchen, I was very excited. Vodka-based, it’s the perfect blend of sweet and spicy. If you’re feeling bold, this is definitely the recipe for you. Not to mention, this drink is a breeze to make!
Southern Bourbon Peach Tea
Even easier than the previous recipe is this party-pleaser. Transport yourself to the south with three of our favorite things packed into one cocktail: bourbon, iced tea, and peaches. This Southern Bourbon Peach Tea from Dazzling Daily Deals is a seriously simple combination that makes for a foolproof drink at your next BBQ, picnic, or block party.]
Blueberry Basil Margarita
Summer means margaritas! And because we love unique takes on classic recipes, we fell in love with this Blueberry Basil Margarita from Super Golden Bakes. This mixed drink is loaded with yummy flavors, including: blueberries, basil, agave, and lime. It’s a sweet twist on an old favorite that you’ll want to sip on all summer.
