What better way to beat the heat and chill with friends than a summertime cocktail? Nothing feels more summer to me than a poolside cocktail!
And to add a little variety to my cocktail game this year I got a little creative with my personal favorite tequila (Mezcal) and recreated a drink I’d loved from a recent girls trip to Charleston!
So without further ado, here is my current favorite cocktail, and the perfect way to mix things up for when you’re feeling stuck on summer sipping. It also happens to be what made it into our signature drinks when celebrating turning 40 last month – an unforgettable night indeed!
- ¼ cup Tequila (I love Mezcal)
- Fresh lime juice from 1 lime
- A heavy splash of John D. Taylors Velvet Falernum
- A few dashes of angostura orange bitters to taste
- Orange peel for garnish
Mix Shake it hard and double strain! Enjoy!
The summer is just around the corner and I can’t wait to see all your #cocktailpics! When you’re ready, be sure to tag me @thestylishlender so I don’t miss any delicious photos.
