The Perfect Summer Drink

Wednesday, July 29, 2015

It's 5 p.m., it's still 85 degrees outside, and it doesn't seem like it's going to cool off anytime soon. What do you do?

Grab a drink and embrace the heat. At least that's what I do. After all, it's only going to be a few months before it's coat season already. Now that's a scary thought... So let's stay with the good thoughts. The summer thoughts.

I've partnered with Alize Passion to share a delicious new summer drink with all of you.

It's super simple to make and it's the perfect combination of fruity citrus flavors for a light drink on a hot steamy night.

Simply put together:

1 ½ oz AlizĂ© Red Passion
1 oz. Gin
¾ oz Lime Juice
¾ oz Simple Syrup
Sparkling Wine
Pineapple garnish (or whatever fruit you can find in your fridge.)
See more recipes here.

Combine, pour over ice and enjoy!

It's always fun to try new summer cocktails and Alize has three different flavors, Gold Passion, Red Passion and Bleu Passion, to give you an abundance of cocktail choices.

This weekend is Lollapalooza in Chicago and I will be sipping on all three while we "pre-game" before the concerts to get me in the summer festival mood.

Stay cool, everyone! Today is a scorcher.
