Now that we are basking in the dog days of summer, the best way to relax or celebrate with friends and family during this weather is to indulge with refreshing mixed drinks!  Here are our favorite drinks for your summer celebration.

 

Frozy Navels

This easy to make drink is celebrated by Delish and takes less than five minutes to prepare.  A frozen take on the Fuzzy Navel, there are only four ingredients, and sliced peaches for garnish.  Mixing a can of frozen orange juice concentrate with frozen peaches, peach schnapps, and orange liquor, this drink is perfect with a summer brunch.

 

 

Sweet Tea Sangria

Kristy Bernardo of The Wicked Noodle, shares another easy to make drink, bringing together sweet tea, white wine, raspberries, and peaches into a sinfully delicious summer concoction that is sure to please.  This is a great drink to prepare the night before, or morning of, an event, and left in the fridge in order to allow for all of the flavors to come together.

 

 

The Twist

The Twist is best when made with Bellion Vodka, and is a refreshing strawberry infused drink mixing Bellion vodka, white vermouth, and strawberry liquor.  Shake together over ice, and serve in a martini glass impressing your friends with this new take on an old tradition.

 

 

Strawberry Daiquiri Jell-O Shots

This is a drink that Delish promises any host or hostess can create to wow their guests.  Perfect for cooling down with on a hot day, these Jell-O shots are presented in a scooped out strawberry adding to the wow factor.

 

Watermelon Sangria

Ree Drummond, best known as the Pioneer Woman, loves her watermelon sangria, made with seedless watermelon cut into chunks and placed into the bottom of a large pitcher.  In with the watermelon goes chilled rose, or any other chilled white wine and into the fridge for at least six hours.  Just before the sangria is served, add in a bottle of champagne, sparkling wine, or moscato and if a sweeter sangria is desired, simple syrup.

 

Fiorentini

Another Bellion classic, this drink is easy to make, and the grapefruit juice can be substituted with nearly any juice or sparkling fruit soda. The Fiorentini is Bellion vodka, grapefruit juice, and seltzer served in a tall glass over ice and is great for a relaxing evening on the deck or outdoor dinner party.
