Cocktails, please...

This weekend we are having some of our neighbors over for drinks and apps! If you haven't already noticed, I love cocktails. Well, I mean lets be honest... I love cocktails and any excuse to entertain!

Anyhoo, I am always searching for new cocktail recipes and wanted to see if you bloggers had any good ones, which I am sure you do!

Soooo, PLEASE SHARE some of your favorite cocktail recipes with me!!!


Pin It


  1. Nojito (non-alcholic Mojito)


    crushed ice
    8 mint leaves
    3 ounces lime juice
    1 1/2 ounces sugar syrup
    2 ounces club soda
    garnish with mint

    1. Fill a pint glass 1/3 full with ice, then add mint leaves.

    2. Add the lime juice and sugar syrup.
    3. Lightly mash the leaves together with the liquid using a muddle stick or wooden pestle, careful not to tear the leaves.

    4. Fill the glass with more ice, then add club soda.

    5. Garnish with mint, serve, and enjoy!

  2. I haven't actually tried this myself, but I was at a winery in VA over the weekend and they suggested making a cocktail with rose wine. You put 1/2 glass champagne (or some sort of spritzer if you prefer) with 1/2 glass rose, and pop in a few berries. They said it is yum!

  3. You can never go wrong with a classic of chambord and champagne, that's my favorite! Top it off with some floating raspberries, yum!

  4. Sangria!!

  5. I also love cocktails and have imbibed my fair share today (I'm at the beach, FORGIVE ME!) ... I know this isn't fancy, but I absolutely love champagne paired with any type of juice... cranberry, pink lemonade, yellow lemonade, just anything. Put it in a drink dispenser and you are good to go - a cheap drink that everyone LOVES!

  6. fresh strawberry and raspberry margaritas! yum!


Thanks for leaving some sweet PBD love!
