Summer Cocktails To Enjoy By The Pool

Posted by Nicole Chenault on

Summer is so close we can almost taste it! We can’t wait to sit by the pool, drink in hand, with our favorite book and relax. The kids are at summer camp, hubby’s at work, and it’s time to wind down from all of the school year stress with our favorite cocktail in hand. Here are some of our favorite summer cocktails to enjoy by the pool!

Always refreshing, always tasty, and always easy to make! 

Ingredients:

  • Fresh mint

Chill your ingredients, add some ice to a glass, and pour to your heart’s desire! Be sure to garnish with an orange slice and if you’re feeling extra citrusy, squeeze some orange juice into your finished drink for an added edge!

A Vodka Spritzer

Mom to mom, you’re lying if you say you don’t like Vodka! These Vodka Spritzers are arguably one of the MOST refreshing drinks we’ve ever gotten our hands on.
