Yep. That’s right. Prepare for an Instagram full of Gus pictures and some Wake Forest Rowing Club love. I am road tripping down to Georgia on Friday night and we are travelling to Gainesville on Saturday to cheer on our Alma Mater at the John Hunter Regatta.
While we will only be bringing a bunch of coffee to the race course, Friday is certain to include a few adult beverages, blog planning, and some side eye form Chris for being generally obnoxious. And while we do love our wine (which apparently Leah ordered online?), getting together is usually an excuse to try fun new cocktails that the boys won’t drink with us.
So, in honor of the impending spring weather (I wore shorts this weekend!), I scoured Pinterest for some fun, spring cocktails to kick off the warm weather and celebrate being in the same state again, if only for the weekend.
- 3 blackberries
- 2 ounces Simple Lemon Syrup
- 1 ounce Bushmills Irish Whiskey
- Crushed Ice
Shake, strain, and serve. Couldn't be easier than that and look how gorgeous it is! Kind of reminds me of a Very Berry Hibiscus Refresher from Starbucks, no?
Another sweeter option would be to sub Amaretto for the Whiskey for a fruity Amaretto Sour!
- Dry champagne
- St Germain
- Thinly sliced cucumber
For whenever the Georgia and NC heat catches up with us, this cocktail will be so refreshing! Everything about this screams "light" and I've loved every drink I've ever had with St. Germain. Still not super sure what an actual elderflower is, but it's delicious.
- 4 cups cubed fresh honeydew melon
- 1/4 cup cream of coconut
- 1 1/4 cups pineapple juice
- 1/2 cup melon-flavor liqueur
- 1/2 cup vodka
- 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
- Ice (serves 6)
I have to say, I'm intrigued by the promise of tropical deliciousness in this one. Blend the melon and cream of coconut until smooth, and then add the rest of the ingredients. Too bad I didn't have this recipe on St. Patty's Day!
You can find each of these recipes (and more!) on our Everything But Coffee board on Pinterest! Now to pick one to try first...
