There are few things I enjoy as much as sipping a refreshing cocktail poolside in the summertime. You can just imagine the pool boy serving them up and passing out chilled towels.
This refreshing poolside cocktail recipe came about last weekend when my husband and I were at the pool and found ourselves out of champagne! See Sunday’s at our house is reserved for Mimosas by the pool.
So what’s a girl to do but raid the cabinet and fridge to see what’s available. Luckily I was able to pull a few ingredients together, pop on a paper straw and what do you know, a new refreshing poolside cocktail is born!
I pick up colorful paper straws whenever I see them on sale – they add just the right amount of festive color with out being over the top. I have a stash of them in a rainbow of colors, patterns and various seasonal feel. They come out whenever I am creating a cocktail buffet, hosting a neighborhood gathering or when serving a refreshing poolside cocktail at the pool.
