Date Night at Home Ideas: Cocktails

Now that I’m sure y’all are gung-ho to have your very own date nights at home, I thought I’d post some recipes and/or links to a few ideas for the various parts of the evening.

Part 1: Cocktails

Let’s get liquored up.

  1. Mixed Citrus Margaritasmarg
  2. Skinny Mojitos: in a highball glass, muddle together the juice of 1/2 a lime + 1 tsp sugar + a few mint leaves.  Add 1 shot vodka (or gin, or rum) and ice.  Top with sparkling water.IMG_2162
  3. The Cuke: in a pitcher, combine and muddle 1 English cucumber, sliced + 3 limes, sliced + juice of 2 limes + 1/2 cup sugar + big bunch of mint.  Add 2 cups gin, then let sit for at least 30 minutes.  When ready to serve, pour over ice and top with sparkling water.IMG_2134
  4. Blended Strawberry Lemonade Margaritas: in a blender, combine 1 3/4 cups lemonade + 1/2 bag frozen strawberries + 1 cup tequila (silver recommended) + juice of 1 lime + small bunch of mint + squeeze of agave (optional).  Blend and serve.IMG_2045
