Lemon Lime Vodka Party Punch
Every time I host any sort of gathering, whether it’s 5 people or 50, I serve punch. I’m always trying to come up with new fun punch recipes but all of them always have one thing in common: vodka. I just love vodka party punch! Unlike tequila, vodka punch doesn’t come back and bite me in the behind (ha) plus it’s easy to mix and match flavors.

Rosemary Blueberry Vodka Spritzers
I love the earthiness from rosemary, but I was also thinking that lavender would be lovely, thyme could be nice, and even the mellow, sweet fragrance of chamomile would work well in here. I love having options, and I highly encourage you to experiment with whatever herbs you happen to have on hand. This cocktail can work with either fresh or frozen blueberries. If using frozen, you’ll need to let them slack out a bit before muddling, otherwise they’ll be really tough to break apart. You could also try making it with strawberries or blackberries, or heck, I’m sure just about any fruit would taste real nice muddled up with some booze.

Cool Gin and Cucumber Cocktail
In honor of St. Patrick’s day, I’ve decided to unveil this super cool and super yummy cucumber gin cocktail. What I love most about this drink (and what makes it different from most recipes you’ll find on the internet) is that it is made with fresh cucumber juice. Don’t get me wrong, I love a stiff drink, but there is something super refreshing about cucumber juice that takes this favorite to another level.

Strawberry Mint Gin and Tonic
I’ve constantly adored a decent gin and tonic. It’s a basic mixed drink to make, in addition to there’s simply something so summery and invigorating about it! Since I cherish G and T’s so much, I’ve added a little wind to my go-to drink to make this Strawberry Mint Gin and Tonic. It’s my new summer fave!
This Strawberry Mint Gin and Tonic couldn’t be less demanding to make. Get a muddler and use it to daintily squash together a few strawberries, some mint, and a little sugar to improve up the berries. Blend in some gin and lime juice, at that point finish off your beverage with tonic water.

Tequila Sunrise Margarita
One thing I know about a Tequila Sunrise, they are supposed to show a layering that mimics the colors of a real sunrise. The recipe I was given had all the ingredients shaken together and while a sort of pretty pinkish orange color; it just did not work for me. Round One was out of contention.

Pineapple Jalapeno Smash
I always forget how much I love pineapple. I know, that sounds bizarre, but really. Ask me my favorite fruit, and obviously I say strawberries (I mean, you have been around here, right? Obsessed.). But then I get to thinking and I’m like omg I love watermelon too. And reallllllyyy good cantaloupe. And then I remember the amazing joy that is a fresh, sweet pineapple.
