Pineapple Sunrise Mimosas
These simple, sweet mimosas are great for brunch. For a virgin version, substitute club soda or citrus-flavored sparkling water for the prosecco, and use grenadine instead of Campari.
Parker's Famous Margaritas
This is the signature drink at my in-law's home. My father-in-law developed a taste for margaritas made from scratch during the summer they spent in Zihuatanejo during the 1960s. After decades of tinkering he has arrived at this foolproof recipe for the ultimate Mexican cocktail.
Grilled Grapefruit Paloma Cocktail
Here's a fired up twist on a traditional Mexican cocktail. You'll grill the grapefruit and lime to caramelize the fruit and give the juice a subtle smoky edge. Stir it up with tequila or mescal and top with club soda for a refreshing drink that's perfect all summer long.
Easy Bloody Marys
Bloody Marys are perfect for that Sunday morning brunch. This can also be served as a virgin bloody Mary (minus the vodka).
Sit on the front porch in your rocking chair on a sultry afternoon and sip on one or two of these. The proper way to serve a mint julep is in a frozen silver goblet, but you can use glasses instead--just use the most elegant ones you have! You can make the syrup ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator for whenever the julep mood strikes you.
Rob and Becky's Pimm's™ Lemonade
On our honeymoon we stayed with some friends in London and they made us this drink - now we can't stop making it! It is especially delicious on a hot, summer afternoon. The cucumber and mint are odd, but don't leave them out - they make this drink!
Saints and Strangers Cocktail
This cocktail is crisp and elegant, with deep, earthy notes and a ruby color.
The REAL Long Island Iced Tea
There are a few impostors out there that claim to be Long Island Iced Teas. In actuality, there is only one correct way to make a LIIT... and this is it!
