This Beachside Cocktail comes together using only 3 ingredients and tastes like summer in a drink! Refreshing, flavorful, and a favorite with many!
Living in Houston, TX…the weather has already felt like summer for a few months. Hot, sticky, and some days….bumping 100 degrees! Needless to say, we have been having lots of pool days and grilling outside!
Last week, my kids were swimming in the pool, my hubby was manning the grill, and I was preparing the potato salad to go with dinner.
My hubby quickly came inside and asked if I wanted a drink. Of course I did, right? He went over to the bar area and a few minutes later, out came these beauties! Needless to say, I was impressed! I had been expecting a Jack and Coke, or Raspberry Lemonade Cocktail, so this was a fun treat!
One sip in, I was thoroughly enjoying it. After finding out what was in it, I realized it was pretty low calorie too (using Sprite Zero in lieu of regular Sprite since that was all we had on hand).
It was such a colorful, refreshing cocktail and we both agreed we needed to add it to our rotation.
My hubby is getting pretty good at playing bartender these days and coming up with some great new variety so stay tuned for lots more to come!
Next time you are out grilling, or by the pool, beach, etc….whip this Beachside Cocktail up and taste a bit of summer in your glass!
