DELICIOUS DELIGHTS

Ever since I shared my go-to summer cocktail on A Diary of Lovely, it got me thinking about other refreshing and light cocktails that will linger into fall (or maybe you will just fall in love with and drink all year!) ... so, as we go into one of the last weekends in August, I thought I would share a few of these easy and delicious recipes!
In a glass or shaker place 6 to 10 blackberries, and 1 teaspoon sugar, and meddle well until the juices from the blackberries combine with the sugar to make the mixture liquid, not dry. Add 1 ounce Bacardi Razz, a splash of club soda, 1/2 lime squeezed and crushed ice. Top it with a little mint, stir very well and strain of the ice.
Add 1 ounce Lillet Blanc, 1 ounce fresh orange juice, 1/2 ounce orange flavored soda water, and crushed ice. Stir well and garnish with an orange slice.
In a champagne glass, fill half the glass with champagne, add 1/2 ounce St.Germain, a splash of club soda and garnish with a few raspberries!


I hope you have the chance to enjoy one of these delights.. let me know if you do, and what your favorite is!
