15+ Summer Cocktails #HotSummerEats

Disclosure: I received product samples from Quirk Books and Casabella to create recipes for #HotSummerEats.  All recipes and opinions are my own.

Welcome to my last #HotSummerEats post!

After all of those delicious burgers, I thought we all deserved a drink!

Today I made a (Slutty) Sex on the Beach.

So why trash up the drink’s name any more than it already is?  Well friends, I took a lot of liberties when making this drink, adding in all sorts of ingredient substitutions.  It got a little slutty.  But completely delicious.  I foresee a lot of hot summer nights with these drinks!

But if that’s not to your taste (or if you want something non-alcoholic for the kids), look no further!  I’ve rounded up all of my favorite drink recipes (with the Slutty Sex on the Beach recipe below.)

Now here is a bit more about the sponsor recipes used in today’s recipe.

Quirk Books Summer Cocktails

Oh, delicious summer cocktails!  Not only is every single picture in the book absolutely breathtaking, the drink recipes are equally amazing!  I foresee a very delicious summer!  You can see my full review on Goodreads.

Casabella Juicer and Reamer

I am loving this juicer and reamer!  It makes juicing an absolute breeze (even my kids could use it!)    I was able to get every little bit of juice out of my oranges.  Plus, the juice is collected into a large cup with measurements etched onto the side and a nice, pourable spout.

Slutty Sex on the Beach

1 ½ oz whipped vodka
1 oz peach schnapps
½ oz rhubarb cordial (or crème de cassis)
2 oz freshly squeezed orange juice                      
½ oz maraschino cherry juice (or grenadine)
Ice, orange slices, and maraschino cherries, to serve

Place all ingredients in a shaker with a handful of ice.  Shake and pour into an ice filled glass.  Garnish with orange slices and cherries.

  1. I need to make a stop at the liquor store... very, very soon! This looks SO perfect for summer, yumm!!

  2. Aw, this reminds me of my college days. Clarification: Drinking this cocktail! :) (There was no beach within 1200 miles!)

  3. You do deserve a drink after all those great burgers! Have a great weekend Amy.

  4. My eyes! ;-) You did create a very beautiful cocktail. I'm regretting not signing up for this cocktail recipe book, but alas, I can't have alcohol for another 22 weeks so left my copy for someone who could put it to great use!

  5. Bahahaha I actually wondered how on earth a sex on the beach could get any more taboo sounding. Love it.

  6. OMG That Slutty drink looks awesome!!! haha. I can't wait to try that, I'm definitely pinning this. And I've never heard of a Colorado Buffalo before. Sounds pretty good, however. I'm slightly lactose intolerant so I might need to limit the cream, but I'll be trying that one for sure. Great recipes!! If you get the chance I'd love it if you stopped by and linked this post up to my Thursty Thursday link up. It's perfect!! And I wish I knew about his linkup before hand. I would have linked up!!
