3 Drinks for Your Next Barbecue

April 27, 2018

Summer is in full swing, the air is fresh, the sun is out and the smell of barbeque fills the weekend air.  This is the perfect season to sit in the shade of your patio and indulge in a refreshing glass of something icy and delicious.

This is the time of year when entertaining is in full swing, from backyard parties to family-friendly barbeques it’s always good to have an easy, adult-pleasing drink on hand. From juicy strawberries to ripe peaches, here are a few of our most delicious mid-summer cocktails!

Strawberry Daiquiri Remixed:

Who doesn’t love a delicious Strawberry Daiquiri on a summery July day? I know I do! This is an easy way to mix up the beloved drink just a bit by adding a bit of heavy cream making this drink reminiscent of strawberries and cream. Yum!

Ingredients

  • One 12-ounce bag frozen strawberries
  • 6 ounces light rum
  • 4 ounces lime juice
  • 5 tablespoons confectioners sugar
  • 2 ounces heavy cream
  • Whipped Cream for garnish

Directions:

Combine all ingredients except whipped cream and put in a blender, pulse until smooth, place in a nice tall glass and garnish with a dab of whipped cream. Serve and enjoy immediately.

Mmm-Mimosa

I love anything that has to do with champagne from glasses of it straight, to Bellini’s, I feel like champagne is the perfect celebratory drink but adding sherbert and making it into a float just seemed perfect for summer.

Ingredients:

  • 8oz champagne
  • 1 small scoop sherbet

Directions:

Put sherbert in a champagne flute and top with champagne, drink immediately.

Easy Peachy Sangria:

Sangria is another drink I love having in the summer and since it has a nice wine base it’s something many people can easily drink. This is an easy version you can make up while company is on their way over.

Ingredients:

  • 1 bottle Riesling
  • 4 ounces peach schnapps
  • 3 fresh peaches, peeled, cored and chopped

Directions:

Mix together and sit in the fridge to chill or serve with ice.

If you are looking for a more carbonated variation top off the glasses with Ginger Ale.
