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!

1. Watermelon Fizz


1oz Dry Gin
2oz Watermelon Juice
2oz Ginger Ale
splash of fresh lime juice

*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


1oz White Rum
2oz Lemonade
2oz Lemon/Lime soda or other spritzer
splash fresh lemon juice

*Make it fancy with frozen lemon rings or ice cubes made of lemonade!


Same as above, minus the rum!

3. Orange Margarita Spritzer


1oz Tequila
1/2oz Triple Sec
2oz Orange Juice
2oz Spritzer or Lemon/Lime Soda
splash of lime juice


Same as above, minus the tequila and triple sec!
