Raspberry Lemon Prosecco
Three words that make you think of summer, right? This bubbly drink is quick and easy to make and delicious and sweet to drink. With chilled prosecco, chilled lemon liqueur, and frozen raspberries, you know this drink will cool you down on hot days. Garnish with fresh mint and enjoy the summer breeze.

Watermelon Tequila Cocktail
Watermelon is one of our favorite fruits and tequila goes great with most things year-round, but it’s especially perfect for summer. You can always go with a classic margarita for summer, but we thought we’d switch it up with a different tequila drink. This one features seedless watermelon chunks, silver tequila, sugar syrup, blueberries and fresh lime juice. Pour it over ice and garnish with mint.

Black Cherry Sangria
Nothing says summer to us like sangria. It’s perfect to make in a pitcher for a summer party. This recipe features semi-sweet red wine and black cherry rum. Add pineapple and orange juice and mix with ginger ale for a fruity combination ready for a party. Don’t forget to add lots of chopped fruit as well.
