Summer might not officially have started but, here in Florida, I would have to disagree. The hot and sunny days of summer are already here, with temps in the 90s, and the need for cool and refreshing drinks is on the top of everyone’s list.

Tomorrow I have a fantastic collection of the Top 20 Summertime Drinks from some of your favorite bloggers to share with you but I wanted to kick the party off early and bring you my newest creation today – the Summer Breeze. This delightfully refreshing cocktail is full of  seasonal goodies that, when sipped, taste like summer in a glass.

Easy to Make Summer Breeze Cocktail

Gather your ingredients – cucumbers, limes, cilantro, mint, vodka and prosecco or sparkling wine. Slice vegetables and juice fruit.

Even if you are not into juicing or green smoothies you will still love the fresh tasting and slightly minty flavor of this drink. Not to mention the vodka and prosecco that put it over the top! Now just put all the goodies in the blender.

Blend & strain. Finish by topping off with prosecco, sparkling wine or seltzer.

I make these by the pitcherful. They’re pair great with BBQs or just a casual meat and cheese board for two.

Enjoy!

Love summer cocktails? Keep it cool with any one of these refreshing drinks – Watermelon Sangria, Frosted Lemonade Cooler or La Noche Loca cocktail.

Enjoy and happy summer!
