Refreshing Summer Cocktails… Need We Say More?

Cocktails just hit different in the summer, wouldn’t you agree? Imagine, you’re sitting outside on a hot July Saturday, your family is over for summer fun, the kids are playing in the sprinklers, you’re catching up with family, burgers on the grill, life is good. You know what would make this situation even more perfect? You said it. An ice cold refreshing cocktail in your hand.

Creating cocktails can feel… intimidating. It’s always easy to reach for that beer or seltzer. But we promise you, the incredible mixers we carry at GG will have your loved ones claiming you as the Weekend Mixologist. And even better news? The mixers do all the work for you which means minimal ingredients and they take less than 2 minutes to make. Yep, we’ve even tried and tested each of the recipes below.

Below are 4 of our new favorite refreshing (as hell) cocktails you NEED to try this summer. You can find all of the mixers in our shop (and these are just a few). We carry tons of other mixers to help you get cocktail ready this summer.

Something we value at Grasshopper Goods is connection. Connecting to loved ones, your community, old and new places, food, and more. Life is full of connections and making meaningful connections has a special place in our heart.

Cocktails remind us of connection. They really do bring us together. Meeting friends for brunch, at an outdoor patio, family reunions, camping, weddings, or a simple drink after work. I think we can all agree, the best cocktails are always the ones enjoyed surrounded by loved ones.
