Whether you're stuck inside the office from 9-5, or you're lucky enough to be seaside for a holiday, summer time brings cravings for some tasty cocktails! So, to start off our Summer Time Series, here's our Bella gals fave summer refreshers. Representing the North, South, East and West, we got the inside scoop on some delicious drinks (mocktails too!) that our ladies love to enjoy on these hot summer days..........
1. Watermelon Mojito.
.. Rae Anne/ Denver CO "I saw Bobby Flay create this delicious concoction on the Food Network, and I had to try it. Now easily my favorite summer cocktail!" 2. Huckleberry Lemonade
... Maribeth & Madison/ Westport CT "We discovered this drink at a local pub. Shout out to The Little Pub in Ridgefield, CT! Their bartenders are the best. WARNING-These babies sneak up on you." 3. Basil Lemonade & vodka
... Lacy/ Washington DC "I think Basil Lemonade and vodka is the absolute perfect summer drink. My friend made it at a summer event a few years ago and I have loved it ever since." 4. Michelada
... Allison/ Charleston SC "Right now my fave drink is the Michelada, being that my husband and I just returned from Costa Rica. There are different versions but mine is simple: Salt rimmed glass, ice, heavy lime juice and your favorite beer. Cheers!" 5. St. Germaine Champagne
... Allison/ Indianapolis IN "I LOVE a St. Germaine champagne cocktail. So refreshing. I had it poolside when we were staying the Beverly Hills Hotel." 6. Goombay Smash
... Megan & Danielle/ Kansas City MO "We added this fantastic drink to our list of favorites after staying at The Sands Hotel in the Bahamas. Beware; it is tasty and will sneak up on you ;)" 7. Sangria
... Ashley/ Jacksonville FL "I'm normally a simple red wine type of girl, but in the summer months I like to mix things up a bit and enjoy a glass of fresh Sangria!" 8. Margarita
... A favorite amongst many Bella's including Shelley & Mary Kendall/ Nashville TN & Mobile AL "I can never turn down a margarita! On the rocks with salt please!"- Shelley 9. Blueberry Mint Lemonade
... Bridget/ San Francisco CA "Easy to make and refreshing...reminds me of being at a spa! You can also add cucumbers. This is the perfect picnic drink to make in a large pitcher. A real crowd pleaser!"
Remember it's always 5 o'clock somewhere! xoxo, Bella
