Summer Cocktails and Mocktails

Everybody loves a cocktail. In the Summer, I love something cold, light and refreshing and so do my kids! If you're pregnant or a kid or are avoiding alcohol for any other reason, that doesn't mean you have to miss out on a special treat. Today, I've got three Summer Spritzers that can be alcoholic or non-alcoholic
so your kids or anyone who doesn't want alcohol can still join in the fun!

Check out my segment on Tulsa Live where I show how to make them, and see the recipes below! 


Here are the recipes. Feel free to tweak however you desire!

1oz Dry Gin

*Make it fancy with frozen watermelon chunks or ice cubes made of watermelon juice!

Same as above, minus the gin!


2. Mommy's Sparkling Lemonade

Cocktail:
