As we talked last week, I love this time of year! It's perfect for entertaining and several different summer holidays give us the perfect excuse...if you need one.
Today's blog is Part 2 in our series Summer Fun - Party Time and with July 4th just around the corner, it's time to talk about summer drinks that are perfect for entertaining. These five drinks all have alcohol in them but can definitely be made non-alcoholic as well.
We paired this drink with our fun short monogrammed glasses and our nautical crab designed coasters.
When making this drink, if you want a clearer drink, remove the strawberries instead of putting them in a blender. I didn't try this but if you want to try this as a non-alcoholic option, replace the champagne with non-alcoholic cider.
PEACH WHISKEY ICE TEA
We served this drink in a short rocks glass because you mix it with a shot of alcohol.
PINEAPPLE RUM PUNCH
We of course paired this drink with our fun, yellow monogrammed glasses and pineapple coasters.
SOUR APPLE TEQUILA
When I made this drink, I replaced the Agave with simple syrup. I have also seen recipes with honey instead of the Agave and some that left it out all together. I like the sweet vs sour taste so I kept the syrup in.
If you are planning to serve several of these drinks at your party, I would suggest doing something similar to what we did. We served each drink in a different glass and paired it with a different coaster to match. That way, you can let your guest know which alcohol is which.
Next week, we will be sharing some fun summer dishes. If you missed Part 1 of our series, where we talked about 5 hints for outdoor parties, check it out.
