Summer Sparkler

Monday, April 30, 2012
With a whopping 100 degrees and my mom visiting, it was the perfect weekend to try out a new cocktail. After long walks in the heat, this sparkler quickly became our favourite treat to enjoy during breezy balcony evenings. It has Italian prosecco (yum!), refreshing lavender, mint and lemon syrup that you pre-simmer and it's topped off with a bit of cold club soda for the bubbles-factor. (Full recipe here).

Doesn’t it sound refreshing? Loves, what’s your favourite summer cocktail/drink? xo

P.S: Missed you last Friday:) So glad to be back to the regular schedule!
P.P.S: Two more posts are coming up today and if you fancy trying another fun cocktail - this one is awesome too.

nothing like lemon - mint - lavender in a cocktail! what a summery, delicious combination! i'm all about the fruity drinks with pals once summer comes. here in barletta they serve mojitos with tons of fruit in them and it's practically a meal! haha! glad you're back!

Yummm sounds like you had a great time with her! Raspberry mojitos and sangria always have my heart in the summer time. Can't wait for some "deck drinking" weather :)

It certainly does sound refreshing. We've been over 100 already here in Phoenix as well. I've been drinking mostly water with mint leaves and cucumbers or orange slices.
I did have some mango lemonade this weekend that was divine.

That sounds delicious and I will definitely be trying it this summer! I love making a "Dark and Stormy" when it gets hot (just rum/lime/ginger beer) because it is so refreshing!

Water with mint leaves and cucumbers - delicious, Jeanette. I might make some right now. Thanks!

I love a good white wine sangria over ice - or vodka lemonade.
