Colorful Cocktails For All Occasions- Recipe Roundup

There is always a reason to try a new cocktail recipe, but this week I have an extra special reason to share some of my favorites! In Delray Beach where I live, we have a thing called bar brawls. It is a really fun event where local bartenders go head to head in a competition to see who is the best bartender. (For more info go here : .

This week, I was given a huge honor and was asked to be a judge. I cant wait to try all of the creative cocktails that these talented bartenders create! Here are some of my favorite cocktail recipes that I have rounded up. You know I love everything colorful, so these are not only delicious but pretty too! Enjoy!

Gin is one of my favorite liquors by far! My favorite brand of gin is Hendrick’s so I swap it out, but obviously you can do it with any brand of gin that you like. I LOVE gin with lavender or rosemary, the floral notes just make it so exciting and special.

One of my favorite things about sangria is you can make it a billion different ways. One of my absolute favorite is by Gimme Some Oven. I love this one because of all of the colors!



Froze is one of the hottest drinks right now, and with a good reason. It is refreshing, delicious and looks so cute by the pool.

Aperol Spritz

I was first introduced to this drink by my friend Erin when we were in Palm Springs, and I was IMMEDIATELY obsessed! It is so refreshing, and you have to be careful because if you aren’t these bad boys sneak up on you and get you tipsy. I love this recipe:

Who doesn’t love a margarita? They always make me think of BBQS and hanging out by the beach. I love this recipe because of the little bit of spice. I love the contrast of the refreshing lime, sweet strawberry, and the kick of spice.
