A Girls Night In + a Fabulous Signature Cocktail

Organizing a night out on the town with friends isn’t always easy, especially as a parent.  But sometimes, you just need to group text your girlfriends and insist on a much-needed girls night.  And sometimes, staying in with your besties is even more fun than going out.

Recently, we were all craving time together, perhaps now more than ever.  And motherhood has a way of reminding me of the importance of spending time with the incredible females in my life.  Even if a little get-together is pulled together at the last minute (and even if I have folded laundry in the corner of my dining room), a fun and festive gathering is possible, with a quick trip to the grocery store and a simple (yet fabulous!) signature cocktail.

With dreams of all that is warm and bright (or maybe an escape to a tropical island), a fun Watermelon & Strawberry cocktail elevated my little shindig to official party status.

This was my first time using Tropicana Watermelon premium drink, and I absolutely had to hide it in the back of the fridge so my kids wouldn’t get to it before the party. It’s definitely delicious and refreshing on its own, but it’s an even tastier cocktail mixer. Free of artificial sweeteners and artificial flavors, it’s the perfect drink to amp up your cocktail recipe game, while making you feel like a master of at-home mixology.

With some casual appetizers to snack and yummy drinks to sip, we were good to go!

Dark & Stormy Lemonade

Chambord-Cocktail-Lemonade-Recipe

It’s starting to really feel like summer around here, and those carefree evenings of spontaneous entertaining will soon be in full swing.  We always enjoy seeing the neighborhood return to nights of sitting on front stoops and celebrating summer.  And warm weather plus a glass of wine or a great cocktail can bring people together in ways that wouldn’t otherwise happen. With only a few ingredients, our crowd-pleasing Dark & Stormy Lemonade makes the perfect Chambord cocktail for summertime parties.

The muddled blueberries and ample crushed ice make this drink one of the tastiest looking mason jar cocktails around!

Cheers to Summer and always be responsible friends.
