The weather is getting warmer, the days are getting longer and it’s almost impossible to park outside our beachside complex on a weekend. It’s official – summer is almost here! Which means we can start enjoying tropical cocktails like this Cuban Beach Cocktail.
It’s sweet, it’s spicy and it’s pink (kinda…more red, actually) – it’s a Spicy Raspberry, Lime & Jalapeño Margarita! Before you go running off into the distance away from the crazy lady who stuck a jalapeño into a deliciously sweet margarita, just give me one blog post to change your mind about unusual ingredients (i.e. jalapeños) in cocktails, k?
As of yesterday, we are officially into spring, so bring on zesty citrus flavours, crisp light salads and jugs of slushie cocktails like this one. Whilst I pretty much love every kind of cocktail ever, I have a special fondness for cocktails in slushie form.
And just when you thought it couldn’t get any more pink and girly around here, I whip up this Vodka-Spiked Pink Velvet Hot Chocolate, top it with thick and fluffy whipped cream and sprinkle it with red heart-shaped sprinkles.
