Summer Cocktail Recipes

Posted by  ·  August 6, 2017  ·  Last Updated: August 5, 2017

Hosting a summer party or BBQ? Don’t forget the drinks. You can make a few special drinks and cocktails in no time with these simple recipes. Here are few recipes that stood out this week on made by you Monday and a few of my own favorite cocktail recipes. Cheers!

Summer Cocktail Recipes

Here is a summer cocktail that features craft beer not once, but twice. Plus tequila. A frozen, blonde ale strawberry sorbet gose margarita. With pink salt. How is that for a mouthful?

This Moroccan Spiced Mint Tea Julep cocktail recipe features a sweet and spicy simple syrup, Moroccan mint iced tea, and bourbon. These unusual flavors come together to make a delicious drink.

We have come to love a cold, refreshing, copper-mugged drink called the moscow mule, and although we were hesitant to tamper with perfection–we decided to branch out of our comfort zone!  Using ingredients from our garden we came up with this refreshing cucumber and mint moscow mule variation. It’s the perfect summer cocktail.


Drinking the best margaritas the perfect way to celebrate summer. These margaritas are yummy. They are the perfect mix of tart and sweet with a refreshing fizz! I have also heard them called beer margaritas.


Fall will soon be in the air and this Apple Cider Mimosa is the perfect fall drink for entertaining. It is more of a fall drink but you really can serve it whenever you like.


Be sure to stop by tomorrow for another Made By You Monday. Who knows next week I may be featuring you.
