Watermelon Margarita

One of summer’s most iconic foods mixes with the classic margarita to create a perfect treat for hot, sunny days. Try this drink on for size if you’re looking for an easy-to-make crowd-pleaser.

Mississippi Punch

3. Mississippi Punch


This punch isn’t for the faint of heart – appealing to bourbon and rum lovers alike, this punch mixes the classic southern sweet black tea, lemon with cognac, bourbon, and dark rum to create a one-two punch of boozy flavor.

Jalapeno-Spiked Boourbon Julep

4. Jalapeno-Spiked Bourbon Julep


Now, hear us out – the Kentucky derby has come and gone, but that doesn’t mean we have to leave the mint julep behind. Jalapeno simple syrup adds a delightful kick to this traditional southern cocktail, and who needs an excuse to enjoy bourbon?

Strawberry Rhubarb Sangria

The flavors of one of the best pies meets crisp rose in this delightfully sweet and nostalgic drink. Feel free to adjust the sugar levels to your own preference – but don’t skip the mint and sliced strawberry garnish!
