Summer Sips

A cold cocktail on a warm summer day - perfection! Maybe this is the year to add a new drink (or two) to your rotation? I want to try the WATERMELON BASIL MARGARITA pictured above - yum! 


WATER MELON PUNCH garnished with pansies would add elegance to any gathering

Lemon Spiked ICED TEA


Olive Rosemary MARTINI

 Cucumber Gin FIZ

Vodka Thyme LEMONADE

Lillet Basil COCKTAIL

Purchase a set of stylish cocktail napkins for summer entertaining

Like these from HORCHOW

Perhaps a sassy option?

I love this quote and THIS option

THESE had me laughing

Upgrade your coasters with these fab COASTERS in olive wood

Or a MOD set in orange

What drink is complete without some sassy ROCKS  from Z Gallerie

Any summer party needs a stylish opener. I love these cast iron bottle openers from AREOHOME. They would make a great hostess gift tied to a bottle of your favorite summer wine. 



  1. Those ice cubes are fabulous and totally rock! All of these cocktails look like they could cool me down on a hot summer's day...

  2. OK - you might have outdone yourself here!! All the cocktails look delicious but I think the Cucumber gin fizz is calling my name. Love the ice cubes, you can imagine how much I like the orange coasters and I think I may have to order at least one of the adorable bottle openers for Nantucket!! This was a dangerous post for me - getting the credit card out - sigh...

  3. Love this post! Those napkins are a riot, and such great drink ideas. Going to bookmark this as my husband is alwatys on the prowl to fine tune his bartending skills:) The skull and crossbones ice cubes are a fun touch!

  4. I'm so wanting to try a watermelon punch - looks like just what I need for this 98 degree day - refreshing and pretty!!

  5. I have to agree with Quintessence! I thought of her when I saw the orange coasters. And I must try that plum cocktail!
