"2 ounces tequila + 2 ounces coconut water + 1 ounce pineapple juice + juice of ½ lime. I'm obsessed!"
"Empress gin and rhubarb simple syrup (I made it myself!), muddled with mint and topped with a splash of club soda. It’s delicious. My partner’s been calling it 'the emperor’s new clothes.' We had a MASSIVE rhubarb harvest, our mint went berserk, and someone gave us a big bottle of Empress gin that neither of us touched for years, so we’re working with what we’ve got!"
"1 can coconut cream. 10 strawberries. Generous pour of vanilla rum. Ice. Serves 4. So simple and delicious!!"
"I've been making a mocktail that is Trader Joe’s blood orange sparkling water, a splash of blood orange juice, and then, depending on how sweet the blood orange is, some simple syrup. I put some mint on top. It’s nice and refreshing!"
"I’ve been doing a play on an Aperol spritz with what I had on hand: gin, Aperol, and tonic with a lime wedge. The tonic brings out both the bitterness and sweetness of the Aperol. A nice cross between a G&T and a spritz."
"I make Moscow mules, but I use a blueberry-infused vodka (you can buy them, but I make my own) and add muddled blueberries. Adds a pop of an extra flavor, but it’s still flattering to the ginger and lime of the traditional mule. My husband uses a spicy serrano-infused vodka that we made."
"I made this *really* tasty tamarind and vanilla syrup — then used it in delicious old-fashioneds with rum. I'll top everything with a little sparkling water to make it extra refreshing."
"Very simple: 1 ounce gin, 1 ounce Aperol, ½ fresh-squeezed lemon. Stir it up and it basically tastes like summer!"
"Not a cocktail, but I use 2 parts lemonade, 1 part Sprite, and 1 part cherry juice. (I like cherry Bai, but you can use tart cherry juice or Kool-Aid!)"
"Skrewball peanut butter butter whiskey + Bailey's = Reese's Peanut Butter Cups in cocktail form. Thank me later."
