We’ve had a lot of fun posting and sharing with you this summer. Although summer is not over yet, and here in Texas we still have many hot days to get through before we feel the first cool breeze of fall, we thought we would take time to look back at past posts and share with you our all-time umbrella-worthy cocktails. What is an umbrella-worthy cocktail? It is a cocktail that is especially good to drink beach or poolside that is not too heavy, can cool you down, and doesn’t look bad with an umbrella accessory. Ready to see what drinks we picked? Well, here you go….
The Royal Hurricane
If there ever was a drink that was meant to be adorned with a cute umbrella, it was this one. High on flavor, freshness, and overall summer appeal, The Royal Hurricane is a hit at any pool party or sunset cruise.
The Italian Mojito has a great flavor with a zip of mint to help any hot summer day feel a little bit more refreshing. Serve with crushed ice to up the umbrella factor.
Let’s party like they do in the Mediterranean and enjoy life like the Italians. Whether you are gazing out at the blue waters of the Mediterranean or the water in your local lake, this yummy alternative to the usual margarita is sure to put some flair into your afternoon.
Rhonda’s go-to drink on a hot summer day. It’s so easy to make and so refreshing. You can’t go wrong with a Paloma. It will make you feel like you are on a beach in Mexico watching an amazing sunset over the Pacific.
The very name of this easy, light cocktail just begs for a cute umbrella. As a close friend to the Paloma, no need to stop at just one.

Some Like It Hot
This drink turns up the heat, but satisfies on a hot day. If you are into spicy drinks, this one is calling your name. Don’t forget the umbrella!
Tequila Watermelon Fizz
The Tequila Watermelon Fizz is a very easy drink to make on the go at the lake or the beach. It is light on ingredients and even lighter on calories. No guilt here while you are sipping this in your bikini by the pool.
Strawberry Basil Margarita
The Strawberry Basil Margarita has been our cocktail of the summer. What tastes more like summer than some strawberries combined with the zip of fresh basil? It is truly a treat for all of your senses.
