Sometimes the hot summer sun calls for more than just water.
Our Sparkling Summer Punch is the perfect summer cocktail recipe. It has strawberry sweetness, limey tartness, minty freshness, and bubbly bite. It’s always a crowd pleaser!
Summer taste buds crave fresh fruit and bright tastes. We try to add in extra seasonal produce everywhere we can. Fruit in our salads, check. Fruit in our dessert, check. Fruit on our pizza, (and we are not talking about pineapple, try grilled peaches with goat cheese!) check! But of course, fresh fruit always makes an appearance in our summer cocktails.
Having a cocktail (or two) is fine in our book. Just remember to make smart choices – stay away from artificial sweeteners, sugary drinks, and look for fresh fruit options! Here is one of our favorite, fresh summer cocktails recipes.
