Fun Drinks You Can Toast To This Summer

It’s officially summer—happy solstice!!! Time to buy some my fav 15 SPF bronzer—that makes me extra mocha caramel-y—to repurpose old sheets for picnic blankets, and attend every single free movie-in-the-park screening. Usually I’ll suggest some really good smoothie recipes or healthy foods to try out, but how about we celebrate with some (alcoholic and nonalcoholic) drinks!?

1. Chai Coconut Bubble Tea

What you’ll need: dried boba, honey, chai tea bags, sweetened coconut milk

I’ve said this before, but I swear by coconuts. Maybe it’s the islander in me, but whatever the case may be, I think you should definitely try this recipe.

2. Mexican Horchata

What you’ll need: rosemary simple syrup, water, sugar, rosemary leaves, club soda, bourbon, grapefruit juice.

I recently got into grapefruit because my stepdad is obsessed with them. Literally. There is an arsenal of grapefruit in my fridge. But this looks great: here’s the recipe.

7. Caipirinha

What you’ll need: lime, sugar, ice, cachaça (sugar cane brandy)

Maybe I’m partial because I’m currently learning Portuguese and everyone thinks I’m Brazilian. But this is a classic, so here it goes.

8. Fresh Mint Margarita

Though my least favorite flavor in a carton of neapolitan ice cream, strawberries can be the way to go sometimes. So try this out.
