Aperol Spritz - The Aperol Spritz is the perfect cocktail for any summer occasion. It's light, refreshing, and super easy to make. Simply mix equal parts Aperol and Prosecco, add a splash of soda water and garnish with a slice of orange. It's the perfect combination of sweet and bitter and it'll have you feeling like you're sipping on a little piece of Italy.


Watermelon Margarita - Nothing says summer quite like a margarita, and when you add watermelon to the mix, it takes it to a whole new level. Blend fresh watermelon chunks with tequila, lime juice, and a splash of triple sec to create a fruity and refreshing cocktail that's perfect for a hot summer's day.


Tropical Punch - This punch is the perfect cocktail for any summer party. Mix pineapple juice, orange juice, dark rum and a splash of grenadine for a sugary and tangy punch that's guaranteed to get the party started. Garnish with a slice of pineapple and a cocktail umbrella and you'll feel like you're lounging on a beach in Hawaii.


Frozen Peach Bellini - A bellini is a trendy cocktail that's perfect for any occasion and when you add peaches and turn it into a frozen drink, it's even better. Blend fresh peaches with Prosecco, peach schnapps and a splash of orange juice for a sweet and frosty cocktail that's perfect for sipping by the pool.


Strawberry Daiquiri - This cocktail is a favorite for a reason. Blend fresh strawberries with rum, lime juice and a splash of simple syrup for a sweet and refreshing drink that's perfect served up any time of day, including brunch.
