We are right in the middle of hot girl summer which means there’s no reason to slow down now! According to Megan Thee Stallion, having a hot girl summer means you’re living it up, feeling completely confident in who you are, having fun, and looking drop dead gorgeous while doing it.
Some of the highlights of having a hot girl summer include posting fire selfies, partying with your girlfriends, wearing sexy bikinis, going on tropical vacations, and of course . . . sipping on delicious cocktails. It’s one thing to sip on a cocktail inside a casino or sitting inside a bar, but it’s a whole other thing to sip on a cocktail during your hot girl summer, soaking up the sunshine and living your best life.
The lyrics of the actual “Hot Girl Summer” song contain way too many curse words so we can’t quote it here, but take our word for it that having the perfect hot girl summer is all the rage this season. These recipes for cocktails can take your hot girl summer up a notch and make it even more enjoyable than you ever could’ve imagined.
One of the first recipes for cocktails to go over would definitely have to be the Creamsicle Margarita. The ingredients for this delight include one twelve-ounce container of frozen concentrated orange juice, one cup of tequila, half a cup of triple sec, half a cup of heavy cream, the juice squeezed out of one fresh lime, two tablespoons of honey, and optional limes & orange wedges for garnishing.
You don’t want to forget granulated sugar for rimming your cocktail glass. Making this drink isn’t as complicated as you might think. All you have to do is add the orange juice, tequila, triple sec, heavy cream, lime juice, and honey into a blender until it’s perfectly combined. Once your cocktail glasses are rimmed with sugar, you can enjoy your delicious margarita with orange & lime slices wedged on top as the garnishes.
Recipes for cocktails during the perfect hot girl summer wouldn’t be complete without mentioning a delicious & classic Strawberry sangria. Not only is this drink refreshing & sweet, but it’s also quite aesthetically pleasing. Here’s what it takes to make this drink flawlessly: Fresh strawberries, lemons, oranges, granulated sugar, rosé wine, triple sec, soda water, and Fresh Mint.
You’ll want to begin by masticating your strawberries before puréeing them. After that’s finished, sprinkle sugar on the sliced strawberries and let them hang out at room temperature while you continue handling the rest of the drink. You can blend the berries together in a blender until they’re smooth and add the wine & triple sec in from there.
After all that is finished, you’re free to add orange slices, lemon slices, and freshly sliced strawberries into your drink if you so choose.
Watermelon Mint Martini
The Watermelon Mint Martini is one of the best recipes for cocktails in existence. If you don’t believe us, you’ll have to try it for yourself! What’s required for this delicious drink is one cup of watermelon juice, four ounces of vodka, 1/4 cup of simple syrup, juice squeezed out of one lime, six torn up mint leaves, ice, and lime wedges.
Recipes for cocktails like this are obviously easy to keep up with and the instructions are even easier. Combine the watermelon juice, vodka, lime juice, simple syrup, and mint leaves in a cocktail shaker and fill that up halfway with ice. Once it’s well shaken, you can pour the drink into two separate martini glasses and garnish them with mint or wedges of watermelon.
Banana Breeze Cocktail
You might feel like you’re missing out on hot girl summer festivities if you don’t try a Banana Breeze Cocktail at least one time! Something about this refreshing & fruity drink is so undeniably good. This drink will require banana flavored rum, orange juice, lime juice, and a fresh banana.
This cocktail might be the most simple of all because all you have to do is blend it all together with ice before drinking. You can add a thin slice of banana on top as a garnish but that’s totally optional.
