Garden Cocktail Recipes: Cheers to Fresh Produce
Carrot Mexican Mule
Grab a copper mug and make your own mule cocktail with a veggie twist. Our carrot juice cocktail can be made with freshly juiced carrot or purchased juice. When combined with fresh rosemary, tequila, lime juice, and ginger beer, it will transform you from a Moscow mule person to a Mexican mule drinker.
Spanish Gin Tonic
A Spanish-style gin tonic (no"and" here) is the perfect customizable cocktail. Use whatever fresh herbs you have in the garden along with some citrus, cucumber, and spices. For a traditional cocktail experience, serve this up in a balloon glass so your nose gets the herbal aroma with the first sip.
Summer Fruit Daiquiri
The best part about this easy fruit cocktail recipe is that it can go any way you like. Craving a strawberry daiquiri recipe? Or maybe a peach daiquiri is more your speed. No matter your route, this summer drink is the refreshing sip you'll be craving all season.
It’s easy being green with this gorgeous garden cocktail in hand. Five ingredients (including homemade celery juice) tossed in a cocktail shaker create this fresh cocktail recipe.
Grilled Peach Whiskey Smash
If you haven't been grilling fruit at your summer cookouts, this cocktail will definitely convince you it's worth your while. Fresh peaches take on a whole new level of flavor after getting charred on the grill. Pair them with lemon, fresh mint, honey, and bourbon for a refreshing whiskey cocktail.
Lavender Lemonade Sparklers
If it sparkles, we’re in! This floral cocktail is no exception. Make a simple four-ingredient (including water) lavender syrup, and combine with vodka and sparkling water. You'll definitely want to keep a pitcher of this by the pool.
Sure, we all love a lime or strawberry margarita, but a mango margarita recipe is our current crush. In case you're not a fan of cutting into those tricky fruits, opt for purchased refrigerated slices. But if you’re mango savvy, definitely go the fresh route for that intense mango flavor.
