Mermaid Mules

Curacao, a blue liqueur made from citrus peels makes this cocktail blue. Its tangy flavor is the perfect complement to your average Moscow Mule

Bahama Mama

Cucumber Margarita

Pina Colada Mimosas

This drink is perfect to drink on a beachside or will go really well for poolside parties.

Cucumber-Lime Pops With Gin 

Interesting as it sounds, cocktails on the stick is delicious as well. If you are having a backyard party, try out this cucumber-mint version good on a sunny day for a refreshing feeling

Ginger Beer Paloma Cocktail

Try this classic drink with a fiery, gingery cocktail with grapefruit juice, lime juice, tequila, and agave syrup.  The combination is simple enough. These are just classic Paloma cocktails, but with ginger beer instead of club soda.

Vodka Pink Lemonade Slushies

To make this sweet, sour and adorable slushy, scoop out the fruit of the lemon and keeping the peel intact. Blend vodka, lemonade, and ice until smooth. Using a small ice cream scoop put this vodka mixture into the emptied lemons and garnish.
