Raspberry Lemonade Sparkler

Welcome to Summer! Has it been crazy hot where you live? It sure has been  here in Southern Indiana for the past few weeks. When it gets close to the 90s with humidity on top of it, I’ve got to find a way to beat the heat. Out here in the country, we like to visit our “neighbor’s” house, who happens to have a very lovely swimming hole. Complete with a fun slide to slide down and make huge splashes in the water. It’s a ton of fun, and my kids love it.

Another thing I like to do on a nice hot summer day, sit on a shady porch with good company, and share a delicious, refreshing, ice cold beverage. It doesn’t have to be an adult beverage, but in this case, it is an adult beverage. I introduce to you, the perfect hot summer day beverage, my Raspberry Lemonade Sparkler.

You’re going to love this cocktail. Not only is it super simple to make, but it’s incredibly refreshing, and absolutely delicious.

When you make this drink, be sure you are using Pink Moscato Champagne and not just Pink Moscato wine. You want the bubbles in this beverage. It makes a HUGE difference in the final outcome.

I hope you enjoy this wonderful cocktail as much as I did, and as always, when drinking an adult beverage, please drink responsibly.

Now, go mix one of these up, take it to the porch, sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Salty Dog Cocktail

Is it warming up where you are? It started warming up around here in the southern half of Indiana a bit earlier than we all had expected. Only a few days ago it was close to 80 degrees! To me, that’s summer weather, but I’m not going to complain. Ok, I might complain a little, but it’s not about the heat. It’s about the darn biting bugs! They’re out already, and looking for me to chew on specifically, I just know it! Anyway, aside from that, It’s still nice to sit on the porch with good company in beautiful weather, especially if you have a pretty little citrus cocktail to sip on. I am no bartender, but if I can mix this up, then you know it has to be easy! There’s only a couple of ingredients and it’s so easy, delicious, refreshing, and so pretty! Mix up a couple of these and share one with a friend while enjoying the warm weather, wherever you are.
