I might like to work out and stay healthy, but I end every day with a cocktail! Check out my favorite recipes below and I challenge you to try them because they are delicious!
While a cold beer in the sunshine is always refreshing, there are times that only a girly drink will do. If you’re getting together with a few friends this summer, why not consider making one of these great drinks that are perfect for girls who just want to have fun!
Sex On The Beach
A smooth and easy drink to prepare, it’s easy to see why this is one of the top girly drinks out there. Pretty to look at, it’s deliciously fruity without being overpowering. All you need is an ounce of vodka, and ounce of orange juice, an ounce of cranberry juice and a half ounce of peach schnapps.
There is no better drink to conjure up images of long lazy Spanish afternoons, and nothing goes better with tapas at your next party. All you need is some fruity and sweet red wine, some Sprite and a splash of brandy. Mix them together and then add some delicious freshly sliced fruits such as strawberries, orange slices and lemon. You can add a spoonful of sugar if you aren’t already sweet enough!
Take a unique twist on sparkling wine by making your own white sangria. Made with white Riesling, black raspberry liqueur, sparkling wine and a splash of Grand Marnier with some freshly sliced fruits, this drink tastes even better when served in a scooped out watermelon.
While you’re thinking of watermelons, why not try pouring a bottle of vodka into a scooped out watermelon and leaving it overnight to absorb the flavor of the fruit?
Strawberry Lemonade Vodka
Vodka mixed with lemon and strawberries makes a refreshing cocktail to enjoy on a warm evening. Simply chop up strawberries and lemons into small pieces and place inside a cocktail glass. Add a splash of simple syrup and mix before adding vodka and ice. Shake it up and serve topped up with soda.
Although the traditional daiquiri is made using rum, you can switch it up using vodka instead. Put strawberries into your cocktail shaker with some squeezed lime juice. Add a splash of simple syrup and crush with a muddler. Add another 2 ounces of vodka together with some ice, shake and serve cold.
Conjure up the Caribbean with this super simple cocktail that only requires pineapple juice, cranberry juice and Malibu. Add the ingredients to your glass along with some ice cubes, mix and enjoy!
If you don’t want the hassle of preparing your own drinks, why not head out to a bar instead. There are plenty of great girly cocktails you can ask for such as the colorful Blue Hawaiian, the classy Cosmopolitan or the simple yet sophisticated Mojito. If you’re looking for something fruity yet pretty, a Mai Tai is the drink for you, while a Margarita packs a powerful punch with its zesty lime flavor. Drink it on the rocks or frozen to ring the changes. With so many options to choose from, you’re sure to have a great night with the girls!
