As the dog days of summer stretch on, there’s plenty of time to enjoy a great cocktail. Whether you want to give your standard iced coffee a boozy kick or you’re looking for a way to use in-season strawberries, we have the perfect cocktails for all of your July parties.
If you already have the grill fired up, toss on a couple of pineapple chunks, and you’re on your way to a tasty cocktail. Fresh lime juice, agave nectar, mint, pineapple juice and dry rum make for a boozy, refreshing go-to when topped with caramelized pineapple.
Wine lovers, this one’s for you. Rosé gets an extra-cool kick when it’s frozen and blended with simple syrup, Aperol and fresh lemon juice. The resulting cocktail is not only an ideal accompaniment for summertime brunch or lounging by the pool, but it’s totally Instagrammable, too.
