Now that school is out for most of yall, you are all feeling that summer loving. I am ready to try some new things. And that includes drinks. I have been searching on the internet and I think I have found some that I am down to try! From down-home classics to ones my clever friends have concocted your taste buds will be sure to thank you. I hope you all try these too!
Disclaimer: Y’all know, but I am going to say it anyways like a good seed: 21 and older to consume alcoholic beverages in the USA.
Wine about it no longer because you can mix a margarita with wine now! Wow, what an invention! So if you are hankering with mixes two of these fabulous types of alcohol look no further! For this recipe, I have found ones for pineapple, mango, and raspberry margaritas! Spice it up with these different flavors.
- 1 ½ c frozen pineapple
-2 oz. freshly squeezed lime juice
- 2 oz. of silver tequila
- 1 oz. of triple sec
- 1 ½ c of frozen raspberries
-2 oz. of freshly squeezed lime juice
- 2 oz of triple sec
-1 1/2 c of frozen mango
- 2 oz. freshly squeezed lime juice
- 2 oz. of silver tequila
- 1 oz. triple sec
- Add salt in a small dish. Rim margarita glasses with lime and dip in salt to coat the rim.
- For the margaritas: For each margarita add frozen fruits, lime juice, tequila, and triple sec and blend until smooth.
- Pour into glasses. Take the mini Moscato bottles and flip into drink.
2. Dry Ice Cocktail: Summer Edition
Honestly, if you have not seen these on the internet I encourage you to open up another tab and search them up immediately. Very cool! (Pun intended). Dry ice is available at Walmart and groceries stores such as Costco. Plan out when you are going to make this drink with the dry ice because it has a very short shelf-life. This is because it is constantly changing from a solid to a gas. SCIENCE!
- Pink liqueur
- Pomegranate juice (Or any type of juice you prefer)
- Dry ice
Combine liquids then add the dry ice and watch the magic happen! It is completely safe to drink (or else it wouldn’t be on the list, I’m not trying to poison you) the drink with the dry ice in it but do not eat the actual cube please!
4. Rose Gummies
My cute favorite little bears in candy form and a bomb wine! What could be a better summer treat?!
- 1 cup of rose wine
- 1 ½ oz of gelatin powder
- ½ cup of sugar
- Strawberries (diced)
- Heat wine in a microwave- safe container for 1 min or until hot
- Mix sugar and gelatin into wine and stir with a whisk until dissolved.
- Pour mixture into molds
- Refrigerate for one hour
5. Blue Hawaii
Why take a trip to Hawaii when you can just taste in a drink? Yeah, I guess I still want to go Hawaii but hey this is a delicious drink.

Mix and enjoy! This drink can also be made as a non-alcoholic drink! You can replace the curacao with Koolaid to give that blue look!
