9 Terrific Summer Cocktails for a Girls' Night in ...


In honor of this Saturday, which I’m spending with my girl cousins (about 12 if everyone shows), I’m sharing with you this list of summer cocktails for a girls’ night in.

I tend to have the same cocktail wherever I go, but I can be disappointed if it’s not made correctly.

That’s the good thing about a night in with the girls.

You make it and you can tweak it to get the taste just right!

These are tried and tested cocktails that have been around a while, and you really can’t go wrong with them.

Give these summer cocktails for a girls’ night in a try and let me know your favorite!2

1. Bellini


The Bellini, one of the most perfect summer cocktails for a girls’ night in, can be made with peach juice, peach nectar, or pureed white peaches.

I like the idea of using the fresh peaches so that’s the recipe I’ve included below with a little extra ingredient.

1 ounce Pureed White Peaches

1/4 teaspoon Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice

Prosecco Sparkling Wine

1 dash of Grenadine

Peach Slice for Garnish

Pour pureed peaches and lemon juice in the bottom of a champagne flute.

Carefully top off with Prosecco.

You don’t want it to bubble over.

Add a dash/splash of Grenadine.

Stir gently.

Garnish with peach slice.

You may opt to add 1/4 ounce of peach Schnapps to the pureed white peaches for a little added punch.

2. Who Doesn’t Love a Margarita?

Who Doesn’t Love a Margarita?

There are all flavors of margaritas available, and most everyone tends to go for the frozen version.

Give this «neat» version a try.

It’s quite simple to make without the noise of a blender cutting off the girl talk.

1 1/2 oz tequila

1/2 oz triple sec (Cointreau is recommended)

1 oz fresh lime juice (or lemon juice if you prefer)

Lime wedge for garnish

Salt or sugar to rim the glass (optional)

Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice cubes.

Shake well.

If desired, salt the rim of a chilled margarita glass.

Pour contents, with ice, into the glass.

Garnish with the lime wedge.
